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.
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.

A Shaft lock is usually a button you press that holds the blade still making changing the blade easier. If your buying a professional power circular saw it should have this feature. The cheaper models usually do not have this feature. Circular Saw Blades A saw blade is one of the most important parts to a circular saw.
