Hi all

I've got the above saw and have just bought a replacement blade for some rough work I need to do. Here's the blade I got:


It says Max Speed 7000 rpm.

The manual only gives one spec for speed:

No Load (Rated) Speed - 3600/min.

Based on that and/or any other available specs, is there a way in which I can work out the saw' maximum RPM? Or am I misunderstanding what the specs are telling me?

Many thanks

PS - is it ok to put power tool queries in the hand tools forum? I didn't think so but saw others had....

I have a Rockwell Versacut which I think is the same as yours except being corded 110V. It has a maximum rpm of 3500rpm and the blade is marked 7,000 rpm too. The saw will not exceed 3500 rpm. The blade in another type of tool can handle 7,000 rpm but in this one it will always be 3500 rpm, maybe a little less under load. Yours will be similar.
