Just picked up a Rotozip Revolution Spiral Saw Combo Kit at Home Depot. It was on clearance for $75.00 and normally $178.00. The kit includes an orange case, 5 AMP rotozip revolution, zip mate cutter/grinder and the circle cutter. The Revolution is their top spiral saw from what I remember. It has 4 speeds, built in light, and a trigger on off switch.
This tool is great for cutting out recessed lights and outlets in drywall. It can also cut wood, counter tops and ceramic tile. The zip mate attachment allows it to cut everything with an abrasive wheel or grind like a side. It can also cut wood, counter tops and ceramic tile. The zip mate attachment allows it to cut everything with an abrasive wheel or grind like a side grinder.
UPDATE: Please note that user Deathwish has reported seeing a $50 HD giftcard mail in rebate offer on the rotozip revolution. Look for a pad of giftcard rebate forms at your local home depot.

Ooh, if I didn't already own one I'd be all over this. If you ever want to lay ceramic tile, this thing will make cutting the tile as easy as cutting wood. Short of a wet saw, nothing is better.

I think so many people got these things from an infomercial that they can be had at just about any pawn shop for around $25.

I purchased one when they first came out when I worked at Home Depot 4 years ago. It was nice until it fell apart last year. Also the bits are pricey and break fairly often.

Do yourself a favor BEFORE you buy one of these & follow the Amaz0n link provided by the OP and read the reviews. Sobering info. It made me pass on this deal.

$100 in DFW, TX too. Don't really have a clear use for one of these, but then again, I didn't have a use for my Dremel until I got one. Now its indispensable.

It's $100 in the Twin Cities, or at least Saint Paul. I have one of the earlier Rotos and it looks like the problems I had have been addressed, like variable speed and a light to help see a little clearer. I was looking at picking this up basically for the grinder/cutter attachment. That usually runs about 50-60 by itself.

^^^BIG BUMPEROO ON THIS ONE!! OP: PLEASE UPDATE TITLE!!
I just picked one uo at my local Home Depot (Somerville, MA), Kit model ZMREV01 for $75, thats the Revolution model with the Zipmate and circle cutter and blow-mold case . . . and there is a mail-in form for a $50 Home Depot Gift Card, offer expires 10/31, mailed by 12/31.
deathwish, Any more details on the $50 Home Depot gift card? What exactly do you have to buy to qualify?
posted: Oct. 22, 2003 @ 9:13a
Deathwish, could you please provide some details on the $50 gift card. Where do you get this form, what do you have to buy etc.
posted: Oct. 22, 2003 @ 2:15p
It's a mail in offer for a $50 Home Depot gift card if you buy the combo between 10/1/03 and 10/31/03. Form was on a pad in store with the display of tools, and had another offer on it, it was a $20 gift card for one of the other (non-combo) models. It was very specifically for that model and the one other, with no substitutions allowed, it requires original receipt and original UPC (sticker on back of cardboard overwrap).
It didn't say anything about limits on the mail-in form, I'm tempted to get another, a good flush trim bit, and set it up as a dedicated laminate trimmer. Selling the accessories/case off on eBay or something should at least cover the bit cost. I'll easily use the Depot GC easily with the projects I have going on . . . when will there be another 10% off coupon anyway?? hehehehehe
Quincy, MA. I was in Boston this morning, but didn't have time to go to Somerville. Lucky enough, Quincy has a better deal.

Can someone please post the rebate form?
posted: Oct. 22, 2003 @ 8:15p
My Home Depot has three, but no idea what the Gift Card offer is. Anyone had any more luck finding this? I tried the Home Depot website, but they only list the newer model. Not the revolution. I guess I'll start calling the other Home Depot's in my area tomorrow about the rebate form. Thanks for the great post!
posted: Oct. 23, 2003 @ 12:16a
Anyone able to host the rebate form? Will try to email it to them.

Even though the saw sucks, can I use attachments for my Dremmel? Might be worth it for $25.

Incidentally for anyone in the market for a basic spiral saw, noticed while I was picking up the rebate form for the Rotozip that HD was also clearing out a Dewalt spiral saw for $30, down from their usual price of $70. It included a circle cutting attachment and case. Don't recall the exact model number, something which included 660. But seemed like a decent model. However don't know if there is a hugh selection of accessories for this model.

I just scored two of the remaining 6 at my Home Depot in Melbourne, FL. The sales clerk had no idea about the rebate. He dismissed it as a regional thing since the coupon mentioned above was found in NJ. I've got a couple more local Home Depot's to check. Anyone willing to mail me a coupon? I'd be glad to send out a SASE.

No, but you can use the rotozip to cut the cord off your dremell.
I just used my revolution last night with the circle cutter attachment to make 16 four inch circles out of 1/2 in plywood. Used the circles to raise my mother in laws couch and chair off the ground an inch. It cut the plywood like butter and in a perfect circle.

WooHoo...more success. My local Home Depot had the tool, but no rebate forms. Called my next closest HD, they have the forms, but no tools. I had already bought two of the tools, one for me, one for dad for Xmas, now I've just got to pick up the forms....Thanks for the post!

I bought my RotoZip for $49 at Menards with a $10 Menards Rebate for instore purchase (Midwest)
But the real reason I am posting.....ROTOZIP sells a 1/4inch bit for drywall plaster and tile that costs about $8....(special high end)
All I have to say is WOW!
Buy that sucker.....It is ridiculous how easy it cuts out drywall and plaster.....and a clean cut....Can cut out an old piece of drywall as fast as you can move the ZIP accurately....
It probably will not be as fast on tile but probably all you would ever need for a tile job on those special cuts......
I mean like a red not knife thru butter!

Used the power of the telephone to locate the form near me too. Turns out that it was available at the store where I bought it! I didn't see it, and the saleperson on the phone initially said there was no such rebate (only the hand tool rebate). I'll try to pick up extras if I can.
