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.
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. This makes it easier to make more precise cuts without having to make a lot of test cuts. 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.

Like I said earlier it was old cheap and from Home Depot. Okay maybe we were pushing it a bit on the 6x6s but who doesnt push their tools to the limit of what they are supposed to be used for? Especially homeowners who typically dont have the large selection of tools that a contractor would have or dont always have the right tool for the job (the right tool for this job would have been a circular saw with a Prazi beamcutter attachment). After a bit of debate we decided to go with a corded circular saw or a Lithium Ion battery powered circular saw because we often go several weeks or months between projects. When we need to use the circular saw we want to use it now. Lithium Ion batteries have a long shelf life which means they will stay charged even if they sit on the shelf in your garage (in the cold) for several weeks. They are also extremely lightweight. So if we go cordless we will opt for the Lithium Ion battery powered circular saw. Makita makes a nice LiIon circular saw and you can get one with the purchase of their LXT700 18v LiIon combo kit. The LiIon circular saw included in the LXT700 kit has a 6-1/2 inch saw blade though not a 7-1/4 which is what we are looking for.
These saws generally have a table that stabilizes them to make an accurate cut. Some table saws are able to be mounted on a table so you can move them around. The table saw is used most often by a contractor for a large job. There are various types of these saws which include the bench top table saw the contractors saw and the cabinet saw. Another circular saw is the panel saw. This saw cuts sheets of wood metal aluminum plastic or whatever else it may be into sized portions. You will generally find these saws in a shop that specializes in some type of major construction such as cabinetry construction. A more unique circular saw is the string trimmer or weed whacker. The weed whacker uses a different type of circular blade that has a string.
