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.
These tend to be a little heavier than the in-line models. Also worm saws are not maintenance free you will need to occasionally add a special oil to the motor which is nothing more than unscrewing a screw and adding the oil it is very easy. Circular Saw Features Electric Brakes - This is one feature I would get no questions asked. An electric brake stops the motor in about two seconds after releasing the trigger while a saw without an electric brake will take about 10 to 15 seconds to stop. The electric brake works by reversing the flow of electricity to the saw motor. The reason to go with the electric brake which most models now offer is to save limbs and fingers. After you are cutting for a while your arm will tend to get tired so you want to make sure your safe at all times. Stopping the blade quicker means less chances of getting hurt. Blade Capacity - As noted above circular saws come in different blade sizes.

With one of these babies at your side you are sure to enjoy circ sawing to its absolute fullest. Many people ask what the difference is between a cordless circular saw and one that has a cord on it such as a corded circular saw. Beyond the obvious there is not a whole lot of difference between the two. There is one very noticeable difference that you will be able to notice when using a cordless circular saw. This difference is simply a matter of reduced power. Nobody has been able to make a battery pack that is able to compete with the power that you get from a circular saw with a cord. 18 volts is a far cry from the standard 120 volts you receive from an outlet. There have been cordless tools on the job for quite a few years; everything from screwdrivers to drills. When you mention the words cordless circular saw many people will be quick to look at you like you have lost your mind; the two just dont mesh well due to the fact that a cordless tool lacks sufficient power and everyone knows that to be true.
