Its a simple matter to lay the guide with its edge along the cut line and then to take the saw and run it down the rail cutting right next to the lip of the rail. Because these saws are plunge-type saws you can begin and/or end a cut in the middle of a sheet of plywood. You could cut out a window or door opening for instance and have it come out clean and square every time. The best thing about using these track saws is the confidence they give you: You KNOW you can do a perfect job quickly accurately over and over again. Another kind of circular saw Ive used a lot over the years mostly for construction is the worm drive saw pioneered by Skil. A framing carpenter needs to be able to cut a lot of lumber all day long. While accuracy is always desirable it is not as critical to the framer as it would be to a finish carpenter or cabinet maker. Speed is the thing that the framer wants on his side and he (or she) does not want to be saddled with a saw that cant cut the mustard so to speak.
Carbide Blades - Will stay sharp longer than steel blades but more expensive. Tile Blades - Usually have diamond tip blades and are designed especially for cutting ceramic tile. Masonry Blades - These blades are made for cutting concrete brick cinder block and other masonry material. They are made of abrasive material. What to look for when buying a circular saw I would definitely look for a circular saw that accepts 7 1/4 blades. These are the most common blades; therefore making it easier to buy blades down the road. Also I would look for a saw with a long cord as you would be surprised how many cords are very short. You can always add an extension cord on but I would look for a cord that is at least 8 feet in length. Another primary item to look for is an adjustable base plate. This is good for making angle cuts and sometimes comes in very handy. Cordless Saws - Cordless saws are nice because they have no cords to plug in trip over or even cut through.

Furthermore the shape of a worm circular saw allows it to perform plunge and deep cuts and in a more efficient and seamless manner. Worm drives saws are appointed with a handle which is set farther back from the blade to give the operator better kickback resistance and help control the heavy saw through long rips. Sidewinder Circular Saws: With these types of saws the motor is set alongside the blade making them extremely lightweight and easier to use over a course of a long day. They are fitted with a blade that measures anywhere between 5 inches to 10 inches or more in diameter and can weigh anywhere between 6lbs to 11lbs. unlike worm drive saws where the motor is hidden behind the blade the motor of sidewinder saws is located towards the side on the left or right of its blade. It is important to pay attention to the location of the blade it dictates your comfort level with a sidewinder saw. For example left handed users should ensure that the blade is located on the right side so that the blade doesnt block their view when cutting something and works contrarily for right hand users.
