I've thoroughly given up on Irwin products now, this being the last straw (the last saws I bought were blunt within a day or two's use and their pipe bender is identical to the no-brand Chinese ones, just with a different colour).
The idea is great, the execution is somewhat less so - no matter how hard you tighten the screw, the blade slips out almost constantly on the cutting stroke.
I ended up giving up and using the blade on its own with a bit of duct tape wrapped around for a handle - got the job done in less than half the time I had already wasted trying to get this thing to work.

Paid extra for the Irwin branded saw but what a disappointment. Stripped the thread on the tightening mechanism with only minimal torque the first time I used it. Returning for a refund.

I was really stuck on a job with no space to work with a normal saw tried tin snips but was getting desperate. This tool did the job where others had failed good quality and handy tool in my arsenal.

Bought this to get into a tight space. It got in there alright, then the blade snapped off never to be seen again. The securing screw snapped, would have been more rigid if it was sellotaped on. Terrible design, why are you even selling this Screwfix? Avoid at all costs.
