I have a lot of experience with cutting duct board, and I have never used a blue tool. So hard to use, I tried several adjustments just so usable.
*Sucks is a little harsh as most customers appreciate that this tool eliminates the need for 4 individual cutoff tools. The blue tool is the cut-off tool which can be adjusted to make one of four different types of end cuts. I think the confusion is that it is not made to be constantly adjusted between cuts. You should set it to the end cut you need and leave it set for your project. If you want to constantly adjust between cuts this tool is not setup to be constantly switched back and forth. ~ BIP
