Have a post already going about needing a circular saw. Anybody have this PC? If so, how do you like it? Give me your thoughts on your use of the saw.

I’ve had this saw for a couple of years. I use it mostly to break down larger sheets of plywood into smaller more manageable pieces. The saw is light and easy to handle. It has a lot of power- for its size. The blade is really thin so it flexes from side to side if I am not careful. Because of the small bottom plate, it is a little difficult to set angles, with any accuracy. The angle “gauge” built into the saw is not accurate. The depth adjustment works OK.
