Circular Saw Articles and Resources
What is a Circular Saw?
A circular saw is far from one-dimensional. As a cutting tool it’s ideal for creating straight cuts and curved cuts, in a wide range of materials.
Circular saws don’t come with the biggest blades and aren’t designed to split the thickest logs. However, due to the variety of blade types and innovative design, a circular saw provides the cutting versatility that few other saws can offer. You will often be limited to working on a workbench, but there are few materials you won’t be able to cut into.
A circular saw is so versatile that it’s a shame not to have one, just in case.
