I needed a slim saw that I could use to cut out the hole for a cat flap, and something that could not only saw around corners but that would fit into a small hole to begin sawing. This saw was better than a hacksaw, as it did not need a frame that made a hacksaw unsuitable for this job. I could not use a jigsaw blade either, as I find a jigsaw cutter hard to control. It is a good strong saw for such a slim blade, and did a great job. I was very pleased.
