tiger woods. if you and i go out and shoot a 76, we've got a little bounce in our step , don't we? do that on the pga tour, you don't last long. let's take you to ohio, second round play, and tiger woods won five times, but te deum your mortal. scored a double bogey on his first hole, shot 4 over 76, barely made the cut at three over par. there is bryson dechambeau. it's like that movie "10 cut" he scored a 10, a 10. missed the cut. tony finau and ryan palmer i tarry for the lead at nine under par. jesus lopez ardo, the a's rookie pitcher with an rocket arm was cleared to rejoin the

[announcer] the following is a paid commercial program for rotorazer, sponsored by razor tools llc. (upbeat music)
- uh-oh. can't find the right saw for the job? you need a handsaw for this, a circular saw for that, a bandsaw, a miter saw, and a jigsaw? and with all the different blades, that job's turned into an expensive jigsaw puzzle. not anymore. (saw buzzing) hi everybody, i'm joe fowler, and this is the rotorazer. over 3000 screaming rpms of workshop muscle, to make any do-it-yourself project so fast and easy, you'll actually enjoy doing it yourself. can your saw do that? imagine using the same saw to cut hardwood, plywood, laminated flooring, drywall, sheet metal, ceramic tile, grout, masonry, marble, travertine, pegboard, pvc and plastic, even metal and steel.
or how bout a saw that cuts carpet without a snag, like sharp scissors on paper. rotorazer cuts horizontally or vertically. it
cuts a straight line, along the curved line, or plunge cut a corner in no time. no other saw on earth has the cutting precision of the rotorazer. imagine trying to make a contoured cut like this with an ordinary circular saw. impossible! and talk about precision. watch again as the rotorazer makes the same ribbon cut in a matter of seconds. you get the exact cut you need, perfect and precise, in seconds! rotorazer will is the all-in-one saw that does it all, just right. - i built a portable storage locker, that sits on my trailer, that i can pull behind my automobile, or store in my yard. rotorazer was the perfect saw to do the job. real easy to use. like a hot knife going through butter. it was the right width of blade, t lees a nice eath c easy to follow a straight line.
easy to plunge into wood with it. today the rotorazer was the right tool for the project, and it did a great job. - take a look at this! i'm cutting this board right on top of a glass table. you would never do this with any kind of saw because it would cut right through, and it would shatter the glass. but with rotorazer it's so precise, you can cut anywhere on any surface. you can cut anything, and that saves you time, it saves the table, and it saves you money. first, it's designed with a 400 watt motor, inside a construction grade chassis, that's durable, incredibly light, and fits easily in the palm of any sized hand. one one side is a thumb control power switch, while on the other, is a safety switch that keeps the blade guard locked until you're ready to cut. and the blade guard is adjustable. cut shallow, medium, or deep. the rotorazer comes with three quick change razor sharp cutting blades. one for wood and other materials like pvc, plastic, and carpet.
a second blade for metals, like steel, copper, and aluminum. and a third for ceramic tile, marble, and other stone materials. with rotorazer's cutting edge versatility, what else could you possibly put into one saw? well get this, the rotorazer comes equipped with it's own dust removal system. with ordinary saws, dust gets everywhere. in your eyes, all over your clothes, all over the floor. not anymore! the rotorazer dust extraction system removes all the dust so you don't have to deal with it. just plug one end into the dust release valve, then plug the other end into the hose of any vacuum. turn on the vacuum, push the power button, now you're cutting clean, as all the saw dust dirt and debris gets sucked into the vacuum. you know, circular saws create a dusty mess. a mess that you have to clean up. but the amazing rotorazer cuts clean every time. cutting with a handsaw is hard work, and you have to cut over the edge of the workbench. but with the rotorazer you can cut on any tabletop.
and since the blade is adjustable, you'll never damage the tabletop below. circular saws are heavy. they're bulky. and making smooth radio cuts is a chore. rotorazer is lightweight, it's compact for an easy grip, and rolls through radio cuts with ease. use a jigsaw to cut a hole, and you'll need to drill pilot holes first. but rotorazer plunge cuts without any pre-drilling and cuts holes in record time. bandsaws weigh a ton. it costs a fortune. and the blade is always exposed. but rotorazer is a fraction of the size, and the blade is always surrounded by the blade guard, keeping fingers safe. got a tile job? well you can pay for this monster tile saw, or you can have the rotorazer, that cuts new time like magic, without cracking the tile. - i wanted to remodel the kitchen countertops, with granite tile. it was so much easier to use the rotorazer rather than getting out a great big cumbersome tile saw. it would've made a huge mess. the rotorazer, what makes it so easy,
it's small, fits in my hand, and i can do it by myself. the angles were smooth. it was so easy to cut the tiles. it was wonderful, i absolutely loved it. it was perfect. - it's time for the rotorazer challenge. we're gonna cut out an octagon window and light switch from the drywall behind us. and here to do it, come on in you two. this is nathan, a professional carpenter. so you've done this before. - oh i do it all the time. - and marcy, you are a? - professional mom. and i've never done this before. - nathan you can use any tool in your box. marcy, you only get one tool, but it's the one saw that cuts 'em all. this is the rotorazer. let's go to the drywall. go! (saw buzzing) now, nathan, you're starting with a drill. - that's right, i have to drill first, 'cause a jigsaw can't just plunge into the drywall. - ok, well meantime, marcy can plunge with the rotorazer. plunging right in. - it's so fast and easy. - no lie! you're already on your final cut. you switched tools! - i did. it's my next tool here.
- ah, marcy! - look at this! (laughs) - she got the light switch done, she's on the octagon. now you switched tools for, ok. - that's right. this is the jigsaw here, and i'm being real careful not to wander off the lines. - yeah, 'cause it's kinda tough to control, right? - [nathan] sometimes. - [joe] ok, well look at this. what's this? - so i used to be afraid of power tools, but not this one. - no? - nope. - not at all, look at you go! - look at me! - finally, we got nathan doing his pilot holes. way to go, marcy. isn't it light? - [marcy] oh, yeah! - you're gonna go back to the jigsaw, right? - [nathan] well i got the bigger saw here, for the bigger cut. - marcy's been using one tool only, and that's the rotorazer. that's a lot of dust! - it is a lot of dust. - meantime, marcy, you got a dust extractor, on the rotorazer, there's no dust. - i love it! joe, i love it, there's no clean up. - do it! (laughs) marcy is done, this is beautiful! (saw buzzing) hey, nathan! - now what? i know you tried desperately to catch up to her.
- i tried, joe. - now what happened over here? this kinda got beat up. - well, yeah the saw jumped. i must have hit something in the wall. - let's see. oh, nathan, that's not only expensive, that's dangerous. with a rotorazer you can completely control the depth of the blade. no cut on the wire, just a beautiful cut on the drywall. so, the decision is yours. you have a choice. you can pay a contractor, by the hour, and spend a lot of money. or you can do it yourself, fast and easy, with a rotorazer. here's how to order. - [announcer] uh-oh. can't find the right saw for the job? you need a handsaw for this, a circular saw for that, a bandsaw, a miter saw, and a jigsaw. and with all the different blades, that job has turned into an expensive jigsaw puzzle. not anymore. (upbeat music) introducing rotorazer, the high powered handsaw with over 3400 roaring rpms, packed into the most versatile, durable, lightweight, and portable saw, ever made.

razor sharp cutting blades. you get a tungsten carbide blade for wood, a high-speed steel blade for metal, and a rock-hard diamond blade for tile and stone. whether you're a do-it-yourselfer or a professional contractor, if it's a home repair, or a weekend woodworking project. if you're a tool guy cutting for a living, or a first time user on an arts and crafts project, the rotorazer is the fast and easy way to get the job done right the first time, and every time. you'd spend a fortune for all of these power saws. but for a limited time only, you get the rotorazer, including three cutting blades, all for just four easy payments of only $49.95. but wait, as part of this introductory special, we'll make the final payment for you. that's right, order in the next 30 minutes and you get the rotorazer with over 3400 rpms of power for just three easy payments of only $49.95. but we're just getting started. to help make clean up a snap, a $30 value, at no eharg just attach the dust release valve to any vacuum,
