Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

Dewalt DC390 6 1/2" Circular Saw w/ 18v XRP battery

1559 days ago by Derek Lyons | 4 comments »

I don’t recall how much I paid for this saw as I bought it on a Black Friday sale from Lowe’s last year, and it’s sat over the winter. I finally got to drag it out to trim some 3/4” OSB for my workshop remodel, and wow. I was concerned about how much pressure I’d have to use to get through the material – but I was halfway done with the cut before I realized I was exerting almost no pressure at all. It’s been zipping through the cuts like a sports c...

Fast, Light, Durable Framing Saw

Fast, Light, Durable Framing Saw

1584 days ago by TheDane | 12 comments »

2 years ago, I built a new 2nd floor deck with ‘picture framed’ outside deck boards, which requires cutting a number of 45-degree miters. I got frustrated with my old circular saw, so off to the big box I went. I came home with a Ridgid Fuego Compact Framing Saw, and couldn’t be happier. This saw is light-weight (only weighs 8 pounds), and tough … the shoe is composite, and the guard is magnesium. The depth and bevel settings are easy and accurate, and the sho...

Worx WT321K:  Budget Friendly, High Quality Circular Saw

Worx WT321K: Budget Friendly, High Quality Circular Saw

1596 days ago by dfdye | 16 comments »

Unfortunately, I always run the risk of walking out of my local Woodcraft with more than I intended to. Such was the case this weekend when I went in for a plane blade and a set of cabinet scrapers and walked out with a new circular saw as well. Though I can’t deny that this was an impulse buy, I have been looking for a premium circular saw to replace my junk Skill saw, though most of the saws I was considering were in the $125-$160 range. This Worx “revolver” saw was o...

An awesome saw

An awesome saw

1644 days ago by funchuck | 10 comments »

I don’t like to give 5 stars, but I think this really deserves it. I bought this saw a little over 3 years ago. This is the first “good” tool I bought. It is responsible for starting my spiral into buying higher end tools. Before this tool, I bought mostly B&D and $100 stationary/bench tools. This cordless saw is so handy. I use it all the time. It cuts very straight and the case includes a place to store your extra blades. I’ve used it to cut sheet goods...

Great saw for the price

Great saw for the price

1657 days ago by jerome | 11 comments »

I was looking for a new saw to replace my old Skil model and found this nice Milwaukee for $99.00. I have had it about a week and am pretty impressed. I was actually toying with the Ridgid brand, but opted on this one instead. This is a saw with no laser, or electric brake, but I personally didn’t miss them. Nice and powerful motor at 15amps so I haven’t experienced any binding under extreme use yet. Does have a interesting adjustable handle that you can position high or low de...

On The Expensive Side For What It Offers

On The Expensive Side For What It Offers

1697 days ago by knotscott | 15 comments »

Right from the moment I pulled this saw from the box my heart sank a little bit. With a street price in the $120 range, I guess I expected a bit more than the average $50 DIY type circular saws offer. It’s built like a cheap saw, has the features of a cheap saw, and basically sells from the virtues of it’s unique size. It’s also a butt ugly drab gray, which wouldn’t really matter if Skil would up their game a little bit. It does offer an interesting design that fi...

powerful and heavy duty

powerful and heavy duty

1812 days ago by jake | 9 comments »

This tool is heavy duty in every aspect. It cuts hardwoods like butter. I like the basic nature of the tool, no lasers etc. They often obscure the sight line by getting in the way, and I would rather clearly see myself than rely on a laser. It base plate is aluminum, but is heavy enough it doesnt flex and I’m sure it helps keep the weight down. The adjustments are straight foreward and are easily operated. The motor sounds smooth in it’s wind up and use. The cord is nice and long,...

Makita, #1 in my book

Makita, #1 in my book

1845 days ago by JMG | 17 comments »

I was a cutman on a framing crew for about 7 years and I have used just about every major brand circular saw out there and the only thing that comes close to a magesium Makita saw is a regular Makita saw. No, I don’t work for Makita but this saw is the absolute best. At only 10 lbs, this bas boy has a powerful 15 amp motor that cuts anything in it’s path. This saw is capable of miter cuts 90 to 56 degrees with the flip of a lever. Remember those times trying to finish a job at...

Skil Worm gear saw

Skil Worm gear saw

1915 days ago by Don K. | 16 comments »

I know many woodworkers do not use a “Worm gear” saw because it is not precise enough for fine detail cutting. But at times I still find I need to use one (other than in my remodel business). A few weeks ago, (before easter) I was asked to build a project for my church (A 20ft tall mountain for a Easter play) and I pulled out my trusty 20+ year old Skil worm drive saw to begin work. Guess what, didn’t work anymore. So I jumped in my truck and head down to my local Lowe’...
