How To Make Sure You Select The Best Circular Saw

No one wants to throw away hard-earned money. However, many consumers who purchase significant value without performing the proper research just might. Either some people get lucky or they are well versed in the field or niche in which they are making the purchase. The truth is not too many people are well versed and they will buy on impulse. Typically consumers who purchase significant value will rely on word of mouth, friends, family, or the service associate at the large local DIY retail store and that is fine, but with just a little more effort you can make sure you are getting the best circular saw at the best price around (let the DIY retailer tell you that with honesty) and I’m sure you will agree that purchasing the best product for the best price is well worth the effort.

There are many questions that a consumer should ask himself or herself if they are in the market searching for one of the best circular saws. Such As: How much does the saw weigh? Is it a safe saw or does it kick like a bucking bronco? How tough and durable is it? Will it be able to withstand the rigors of the job site? I only need a circular saw for home improvements, which one will best suit my needs? How many Amp’s and RPM’s is it equipped with? How easy (or not) is it to use? How is the weight of the saw distributed and is it properly balanced? How large is the cutting capacity? What are the degrees of the positive stops? Is it powered with electricity or a rechargeable battery and which is more efficient? How durable is the cord connection? How enhanced (or not) is the line of cut? I have large hands and I like to wear gloves, what is the clearance between the handle and the blade case? How clear are the depth and bevel markings? How durable and reinforced is the footplate? What is the difference between a “worm drive” circular saw and a “sidewinder”? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? I rip rafters all day long, is there a hook to rest the saw while I move or pivot?

All of these questions are very important when you decide to purchase one of the best circular saws. During my 27 years as a professional carpenter, my 1st priority has always been safety. I still have both of my hands and all of my fingers to prove just that. Unfortunately, not all carpenters can say that and I have witnessed some real gnarly accidents. That being said, all of the above questions play a role in the effectiveness, efficiency, and safety of the saw and you must purchase the right saw (not only) for you, but for the job/s you intend to use it.

With all of the different makes and models, it can become a little overwhelming and laborious to select the best circular saw. Over the years that I’ve been involved in carpentry, I’ve purchased many tools and during that time there were no websites to assist me with making an informed purchase decision. I felt there was a demand for such information, so I developed a website that is geared toward assisting carpenters or DIY’ers who are looking for one of the best circular saws on the market. I’ve spent hours gathering a ton of reviews from actual buyers and users of the circular saws displayed on my site. I share the excellent, good, and not-so-good comments of the reviewers. This website will certainly assist and help you (to relax) with making a purchase decision that is well informed and educated.
