Somewhere on this forum someone has a picture of this saw and says something like, "if you have this saw, stop and throw it out immediately". I can't agree more. I cut for 2" and it veered so far off track it cut into the deck structure framing underneath.
I changed to this saw. Faster, louder and even scarier to use for cutting these doors.
It did a very clean job though
What saw/saws? I can't see any photos. I imagine you are talking about a jig saw, and my experience with jig saws is that they are prone to wander, are very difficult to straight line with, and are not best for accurate cuts even with an edge guide, no matter the brand or size.
