45 degree angle circular saw
During my 27 years as a professional carpenter my 1stpriority has always been safety. I still have both of my hands and all of my fingers to prove just that. Unfortunately not all carpenters can say that and I have witnessed some real gnarly accidents. That being said all of the above questions play a role in the effectiveness efficiency and safety of the saw and its imperative that you purchase a saw that is right (not only) for you but for the job/s you intend to use it. With all of the different makes and models it can become a little overwhelming and laborious selecting the best circular saw. Over the years that Ive been involved in carpentry Ive purchased many tools and during that time there were no websites to assist me with making an informed purchase decision. I felt there was a demand for such information so I developed a website that is geared toward assisting carpenters or DIYers who are looking for one of the best circular saws on the market. Ive spent hours gathering a ton of reviews from actual buyers and users of the circular saws displayed on my site. I share the excellent good and not-so-good comments of the reviewers. This website will certainly assist and help you (to relax) with making a purchase decision that is well informed and educated.
Look for rolled edges which make the plate stronger and also make it easy to follow a guide rail. You will eventually drop the saw and stamped steel plates will get bent. Adjustments for the Bevel: Play with the bevel adjustments to make sure they move easily and snap into position. Its nice to have saws with scales which have one-degree markings.

As one of the more popular power tools on the market today a worm-drive circular saw can be found on nearly every jobsite and in nearly every garage on the block. They are built for durability and high-performance and make any number of construction and demolition projects that much faster and simpler to complete. Despite their popularity only a handful of circ saw users fully appreciate the importance of regular maintenance and particularly of keeping their worm-drive circular saws properly oiled. In fact its common for the lubricant in these tools to become thick dirty and sludgy which can extremely damage the performance of the saw and can contribute to premature wear and ultimately the premature failure of the tool.

The oil plug is the metal nut that sits just above the oil reservoir (the reservoir should be clearly indicated with images or text). To remove the plug use the wrench that came with the tool (the same one you use to remove the saw blade) and twist the plug off. Tip the saw upside-down allowing as much oil as possible to drain from the reservoir. After draining the sludgy oil refill the oil reservoir with kerosene. Replace the oil plug and allow the tool to run for another minute. This pushes the kerosene throughout and entirely flushes the gear housing clearing it and the reservoir of any residual oil build-up. Invert the tool once more to drain the kerosene entirely from the reservoir. Next and last you simply need to refill the reservoir with a brand specific lubricant. For example if you use a Skil saw you need to refill the reservoir with Skil oil. It is important that you use only these specific lubricants as other oils are not designed with the same particularities. Rest the tool on its foot atop a vertical surface (like a work bench or table) and fill the oil reservoir until oil spills slightly from the lowest point on the oil hole (the part closest to the oil reservoir) and replace the oil plug. Remember to check the oil in your worm-drive circular saw before each use top-it off when it needs it flush the oil when it gets nasty and and you and that circ saw should be well on your way for a long life of successful productivity.
