A true multipurpose industrial straight flush saw, the CUZ-D SFS-85 is designed to do it all. Or at least, do a lot more than your average table saw. Practicality and versatility are the names of the game with this impressive piece of kit, earning its manufacturer strong critical
acclaim in key markets worldwide.
Most decent table saws on the market these days are perfectly capable of ripping through a variety of materials with ease. The difference is that with the Straight Flush Saw SFS-85 CUZ-D, this thing also takes flawless flush finishes in its stride. According to the manufacturer, flush finishes that are on a level no comparable saw on the market can rival.
The idea being that with the CUZ-D, you can effectively cut your work time in half. Hence, whatever price it is selling for at that time (which isn’t a lot), you stand to save significant amounts of time and money. The kinds of flush cutting jobs you’d usually spend a couple of hours tackling can be handled in a matter of minutes with this ingenious device. But how does the CUZ D Straight Flush Saw perform when put to the test? Does it genuinely live up to the hype?
Two questions I’ll be attempting to answer in this completely objective CUZ D Straight Flush Saw review.

Of course, there’s no escaping the fact that this innovative saw could be considered a little on the expensive side. Nevertheless, when considering the kind of power, performance and precise features you get for your money, it’s actually a pretty small price to pay. Primary features and selling-points (according to the manufacturer) being as follows:

My Experience with the CUZ D Straight Flush Saw
If I’m honest, I wasn’t particularly interested in how this saw formed with the more generic everyday jobs. The reason being that it’s not exactly difficult to pick up a decent all-purpose saw these days at an affordable price. Instead, the straight flush saw is all about those supposedly immaculate flush cuts. Put to the test with a variety of materials, and I can say that this thing definitely lives up to the hype.
It takes a bit of getting used to and has a somewhat quirky design, which at first can make it feel a little awkward and even cumbersome. However, once you get used to the way it works, it’s an absolute joy to work with and delivers truly fantastic results. In terms of power, performance, accuracy, and versatility, this high-end saw could be in a league of its own right now.
I can see why it’s become a staple for carpenters and on building sites all over the place. Where flush cuts are needed – particularly on an extensive or regular basis – this thing could save you more time and effort than you’d believe. Even at its relatively top-shelf selling price, it represents superb value for money and is well worth checking out.
- Enormous power and consistent performance
- One of the most versatile saws of its kind
- Delivers flawless flush cuts in seconds
- Multiple safety features
- Industry-leading bevel range
- Takes a little getting used to at first
For the average home DIYer, the Cuz-D SFS-85 could be a little on the complex and expensive side. For the pro user with heavy-duty site projects in mind, it’s just about as good as it gets. Once again, aside from the slightly unusual design that takes a little getting used to, I genuinely couldn’t find any real fault with the CUZ D. As far as raw performance and versatility are concerned, we could well be looking at a new front-runner for the segment as a whole.
