@ Rob – I used a Craftsman circular saw for many years. Recently I bought a new saw at HD. It is a Makita. I also bought a Diablo thin kerf blade for it. It cuts through wood like butter. Obviously it has more horspower than the old saw. I like the feel of it.

I had two pieces of red oak clamped together so I could cut an angle and it cut it easily, almost effortlessly.
I also used it to cut to the final size on the table top I built. It is made of solid maple 1 5/8 inches thick. It cut it with no problem and left very few marks to sand afterwards. I used a straight edge to guide the saw.

If you go by HD, check it out.
