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.
The oil plug is the metal nut that sits just above the oil reservoir (the reservoir should be clearly indicated with images or text). To remove the plug use the wrench that came with the tool (the same one you use to remove the saw blade) and twist the plug off. Tip the saw upside-down allowing as much oil as possible to drain from the reservoir. After draining the sludgy oil refill the oil reservoir with kerosene. Replace the oil plug and allow the tool to run for another minute. This pushes the kerosene throughout and entirely flushes the gear housing clearing it and the reservoir of any residual oil build-up. Invert the tool once more to drain the kerosene entirely from the reservoir. Next and last you simply need to refill the reservoir with a brand specific lubricant. For example if you use a Skil saw you need to refill the reservoir with Skil oil. It is important that you use only these specific lubricants as other oils are not designed with the same particularities. Rest the tool on its foot atop a vertical surface (like a work bench or table) and fill the oil reservoir until oil spills slightly from the lowest point on the oil hole (the part closest to the oil reservoir) and replace the oil plug. Remember to check the oil in your worm-drive circular saw before each use top-it off when it needs it flush the oil when it gets nasty and and you and that circ saw should be well on your way for a long life of successful productivity.

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.
