Also there are times when having a saw that pulls 15 amps may not be desirable. If youre using a long extension cord and/or a smaller power generator a saw that pulls 10 amps might be a better choice. - Oh and what about cordless circular saws? The size and power of the battery is the thing to consider for these. Youll see these rated in volts with 18 volt and 20 volt saws (saws designed to work with 20 volt batteries) being very common in budget and mid-level saws. The volt rating is something that can be used as part of comparing different saws but shouldnt be the only aspect considered. Keep in mind that the convenience of a cordless saw can mean a compromise on cutting power. - Weight: Theres so much variety in circular saw designs and engineering that no category of hand held circular saw can claim to be the heaviest or lightest. While generally speaking direct drive circular saws are lighter than hypoid and worm drive saws there are certainly direct-drive saws that are heavier.
ToolKings secret (for all you e-commerce wannabes) is that they purchase in very large quantities from companies like DeWalt and Makita and that leverage gets them a better price deal which they then pass on to their customer aka: You. Anyhoo ~ back to my circular saw purchase. Corded versus Cordless Im debating whether to go with a cordless or corded circular saw. My husband and I bought the crappiest smallest house in our neighborhood so we are in the middle of remodeling pretty much our entire home. Because we both work full-time jobs we remodel in spurts. Our circular saw just crapped out on us on the last project. We were framing an outdoor patio area with 6x6s to lay pavers. Poop went our circular saw it had had enough.

With just a little lube and a little extra time from those of us who glean so much work and happiness from our worm-drive circ saws though the early demise of these tools is entirely preventable Before explaining how to flush these bad-boys though Ill start with a quick tip: users should check the oil level in their worm-drive circular saws before each and every use. This takes only a moment and ensures your saw will perform at its best each and every time you use it. Note: the oil level in the tool should never fall below the lowest threads in the oil housing. So to continue if you are one of those users who doesnt keep the best tabs on your oil levels and now you have a sludgy mess on your hands and inside your saw flushing and replacing the oil in your tool is the only way to revitalize its performance and longevity. Fortunately though although a bit more time consuming than simply topping-off the oil flushing it and replacing it is a quite simple procedure. Disclaimer: Although it is not necessary to remove the saw blade to flush the oil from a worm-drive circular sawl it is always safer to remove it. This eliminates any chance of injury to both you and the saw blade. Also when not running to the tool to warm old oil or flush with kerosene (*see below) ensure the tool is fully disengaged from its power source while working on it. To begin simply let the circular saw run for about one minute. This allows the sludgy oil to warm and loosen making it simpler to drain. Next remove the oil plug.
