Circular saws have a flat pivoting shoe that moves up and down for depth adjustment and to the right or left (although generally to the left from zero to 45 or 50 degrees) for angled cuts or edging. Circular saws are also built with a blade guard which covers the blade almost entirely to protect operators from the jaws of a spinning blade. Most circular saws also have additional safety features like blade and trigger locks -- but dont let these mechanisms fool you. Circular saws can be very dangerous and because they are relatively simple to use and maneuver it is easy to forget the potential dangers of a sharp and spinning power tool as you work. Circular saws are excellent for rip cuts cutting with the grain and also for cross cuts or cuts made against the grain. The saw is also surprisingly accurate - even without a guide. Because the blade is so large its bigger size generally keeps your cuts on track.
An anti-snag lower guard is becoming the standard but some saws may still have trouble with snagging during beveled cuts. A lower guard that snags on the edge of a board can be dangerous. It can increase the chance of damage to the wood or blade but most importantly it can lead to serious injuries for people just learning to use a circular saw. - Motor Brake: This is exactly what it sounds like. Once you release the power trigger a brake engages that stops the motor from turning in about 2 seconds. It increases the safety of a saw though all circular saws have a lower guard that also helps protect a person and work surfaces from the spinning blade when the saw is not actually being used to make cuts. One additional advantage of a motor brake though is that it can allow you to make repetitive cuts quickly by reducing the time you wait for the blade to stop spinning from previous cuts. - Blower: A built-in blower is a nice feature.
