ten inches. We’ll cut the drywall at the twenty
four-inch level to remove as much of the affected area is possible. And to be able to replace the drywall by
simply ripping a four by each sheet in half. With the multi-purpose cutting blade place

  1. I have the Ultra-Saw, and it doesn't have the TRSM810 Dust Port Adapter, so where can I get one?  Everyone that I have tried does not have it.

  2. This tool has been a dream for cutting fiberglass but I give it a "Complete Shit" review because we require a duct collector and you cannot find one anywhere. They show it and it is listed in the instructions but I am at my wits end trying to purchase this required accessory. Returning after one job and looking at the Rockwell and Kett.
