There is a time and place for a cordless circular saw this place is not designed to build an entire house with them but they will work for small projects around the house. Lets be real until there is a way to place all of the 120 volts of a corded circular saw into the size of an 18 volt battery pack a cordless circular saw will be at a distinct disadvantage in the way of power. All of that being said there are advancements that have been made on a cordless circular saw that many of the corded versions are not up to speed with. One of these is the side blower; this is designed in order to keep the cutting line clear of any debris that tends to cover up the cutting line when you are in the process of cutting a straight line. In addition there is the fact that the adjustments can be made on the fly as you are in the middle of a project. There is no longer a time that you have to take a lot of time away from the project that you are working on.
A worm-drive saw runs at lower RPMs than sidewinder circular saws. This produces more torque at the cutting surface and reduces the likelihood of the saw bogging down. A worm-drive is the choice when cutting thick pieces of lumber 2x4s and 2x6s or wet material. Worm-drive saws are slightly heavier than sidewinder saws 12 to 15 pounds but after a little use you get used to the weight and learn to appreciate the more solid feel of a worm-drive saw. Plunge type saws have metal guide rails that make them useful for trimming. The saw makes its cut very close to the rail without actually touching it. A lot of plunge saws are constructed to hold the material being cut eliminating the need for clamps. However if youre like me I still prefer to use clamps; it just gives me a more firm and solid feeling when making the cut especially when I need at least a reasonable level of accuracy. Plunge-type circular saws are specially designed to make a cut in the middle of large sheets of wood. The most popular circular saw for general use is the 7 inch saw. It doesnt cost much: ranging from $80 up to around $200. Its also relatively light usually 10 to 12 pounds. Some models are just basic with few features while others can have dual-beam laser guide lines. These saws typically come with sidewinder type motors. They operate at higher RPMs compared to worm-drive saws and produce less torque. While some circular saw manufacturers offer frills such as canvas carrying bags or LED lights there are several features that you absolutely need if youre going to enjoy using your saw. Im not saying that canvas bags and LED lights arent nice features to have but there are others that are more important.

Many people ask what the difference is between a cordless circular saw and one that has a cord on it such as a corded circular saw. Beyond the obvious there is not a whole lot of difference between the two. There is one very noticeable difference that you will be able to notice when using a cordless circular saw. This difference is simply a matter of reduced power. Nobody has been able to make a battery pack that is able to compete with the power that you get from a circular saw with a cord. 18 volts is a far cry from the standard 120 volts you receive from an outlet. There have been cordless tools on the job for quite a few years; everything from screwdrivers to drills. When you mention the words cordless circular saw many people will be quick to look at you like you have lost your mind; the two just dont mesh well due to the fact that a cordless tool lacks sufficient power and everyone knows that to be true.
