7 1 4 cordless circular saw
If you would not want this to happen check your saw machine or you can bring it with you can let the shop technicians look for what blades size will fit your saw. Types of Blade As mentioned earlier there are 4 kinds of blade available for you to choose and each of this type has its own specific use. Steel blade is commonly used to cut softwood. High-speed Steel (HSS) is more durable and sharper than steel blades. Choose an abrasive blade when cutting stones and metals. Or you can try diamond blades when cutting really tough materials such as tiles stone and diamond. The sharpness of the blade gets weak when used inappropriately. Like for example when you use steel blade on hardwoods. This method is not practical and can even cost much... so to make sure youre on the right track determine what type of materials youll use to cut. Rip blades are ideal to cut the grain of the stock. It can do the job quickly however it is less predictable that it will always give the cleanest of finishes. Crosscut blades can cut wider using carbides or chisels. You can use it alternately between cutting wide right and wide left. You can also have both the benefits of rip and cross cut using the combination blades.
Cutting angle quality depends on the design of the angle adjustment mechanism of the saw. Rivet spots and mechanism components must be well manufactured and of sufficient strength to maximize both accuracy and ease of adjustment. Some saws use smaller blades that have a more shallow depth of cut. This is often true in cordless saws marketed to the average DIYer or homeowner. Cordless saw can be found that use blade sizes: 3 3/8" 5 1/2" 5 3/8" 6 1/2" 7 1/2" and a few other less common sizes. Bigger blades usually mean greater cutting depth. There are corded circular saws with 10" blades that can be used in construction and woodworking. These are usually worm-drive saws because the larger blades need the extra cutting power that a worm-drive or hypoid saw can provide. - Anti-Snag Lower Blade Guard: All common hand held circular saws will have a lower blade guard that moves during cuts but some may snag on the edge of materials being cut.

A worm-drive saw runs at lower RPMs than sidewinder circular saws. This produces more torque at the cutting surface and reduces the likelihood of the saw bogging down. A worm-drive is the choice when cutting thick pieces of lumber 2x4s and 2x6s or wet material. Worm-drive saws are slightly heavier than sidewinder saws 12 to 15 pounds but after a little use you get used to the weight and learn to appreciate the more solid feel of a worm-drive saw. Plunge type saws have metal guide rails that make them useful for trimming. The saw makes its cut very close to the rail without actually touching it. A lot of plunge saws are constructed to hold the material being cut eliminating the need for clamps. However if youre like me I still prefer to use clamps; it just gives me a more firm and solid feeling when making the cut especially when I need at least a reasonable level of accuracy. Plunge-type circular saws are specially designed to make a cut in the middle of large sheets of wood. The most popular circular saw for general use is the 7 inch saw. It doesnt cost much: ranging from $80 up to around $200. Its also relatively light usually 10 to 12 pounds. Some models are just basic with few features while others can have dual-beam laser guide lines. These saws typically come with sidewinder type motors. They operate at higher RPMs compared to worm-drive saws and produce less torque. While some circular saw manufacturers offer frills such as canvas carrying bags or LED lights there are several features that you absolutely need if youre going to enjoy using your saw. Im not saying that canvas bags and LED lights arent nice features to have but there are others that are more important.
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.
