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.
If you are buying a corded model I would go with a 7 1/4" and for cordless go with a 6 1/2".

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.

After you have removed the old blade (and before installing the new blade) make use of the opportunity to clean out the sawdust and other cutting debris from the upper and lower blade guards.

However some hypoid and worm drive designs may not spin their cutting blades at as high of speeds as a direct drive. In practical non-construction uses the differences in cutting speeds dont really matter much. The quality of the blade and using the correct blade for the material being cut is a much bigger factor for cutting speed and cutting quality. With this being said there are differences among all styles and within the same designs of circular saws that make a difference. The overall quality of a saw is always a factor.

Some are rated at 14 amps 13 amps 12 amps 10 amps and lower. However more isnt always better.
