Well, yes, it cuts steel without ripping all the diamond off the base, that's about it. My opinion was it was worth exactly what I paid for it, nothing. It is extremely loud and cuts slow as molasses in January with such a ragged burr you'll think you have a school of hungry piranha on the back side of your material.
Did I throw it in the recycle bin? No. Someday, when I'm out in the field and in a pinch to cut something it just might save my butt. Would I pay for one just to have around for the afore mentioned "in a pinch" use, no.
