A circular saw is one of those "must have" tools for most homeowners and for every do-it-yourselfer. It will save you a lot time and effort and easily handle cutting projects that you wouldnt want to tackle with a hand saw. The Makita BSS610 is one of the most highly regarded of the cordless circular saws. Here are a few tips and reminders on using this saw. 1. When cutting small wood pieces be sure and secure them (e.g. with clamps) to the saw horse or other cutting support that you are using before you begin cutting. This will help you make a straighter and safer cut. 2. If your saw blade begins to bind (or if you are stopping your saw in the middle of a cut for any reason) release the saws trigger and do not attempt to remove the saw until the blade has completely stopped moving. If you try and remove the saw before the blade has completely stopped a saw "kickback" may occur. 3. Keep your saws blade clean. You can use kerosene gum remover or hot water to clean the blade. Never use gasoline! IMPORTANT: Make sure that you have removed the battery from the saw before beginning to remove and clean the saw blade. 4. A circular saw is designed to cut only in a straight line. If you try cutting in other than a straight line the saw blade will bind or possibly cause a "kickback". Borrow a jig saw if you need to perform curved cutting. 5. When cutting large wood sheets (e.g. 4 X 8 pieces of plywood) make sure that the wood piece is fully supported so there will be no sag in the wood sheet during your cut.
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.

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.
