Rockwell Tools is an older manufacturer of may tools for the construction industry. When 1945, Rockwell purchased Delta Manufacturing Co., and made it Delta Power Tool Division. Thereafter, Delta tools were labeled “Delta Rockwell”. 1973, Rockwell Manufacturing Company merged with North American Rockwell to become Rockwell International Corp. Rockwell has made a circular saw, as well as other power tools that are portable and stationary for on site construction and shop work.
By far the current most popular saw is the Rockwell Versacut, the RK3440K and the RK3441K both are AC powered and either are great tools to have depending on what you use them for. Many prefer these to the other MFG compact saws on the market
Great for cutting sheet goods (plywood and more) and is a great “quicky” saw .
We like the plunge cut feature that is quick to cut out a square hole for a vent or whatever, this is a real time saver and does not require other tools such as a circular saw and a jig saw (to finish up the inside corner cuts). It can cut various materials depending on blade selection. The dust extraction adapter helps in keeping the cut line clear .Very good control over the tool from its ergonomically design and your handle is the motor itself.
- blade size 3-3/8″
- Cutting Depth 1-1/16″
- 4 Amp motor
- RPM 3500
- weight 4 pounds
- Warranty 2 yrs
Vertical cutting is an easy to do option now and much safer as you have more control over the Versacut saw. One handed cutting of tile, wood, aluminum, sheet metal, PVC,ect depending on blade choice.

Rockwell Compact Circular Saw
The compact saw is light weight, compared to any full size saw, and is good to use in tight places and great for sheet material such as plywood. If you are using this tool for several hours those few pounds make a difference and its easier to reach all the way across a 4 x 8 plywood sheet.
The Rockwell rk3441k is similar to saw above (motor is handle) but there is a difference in blade cutting depth and size. You cannot plunge cut as easy as the versacut however you can do bevel cuts with this model and cut 2x material too. This compact circular saw is very versatile and another good tool if you are a busy shop or contractor.Has a dust port that allows the connect of a shop vac to help keep sawdust and overall cleanup to a minimum.This also is very useful for doing those cuts that must be done inside a living/clean area.
