Circular Saws Information

The circular saw is a real workhorse of a tool. Enabling the operator to quickly and easily cut straight lines, whether freehand or in conjunction with a rip fence or guide rail, it can be used for a wide variety of common applications and is generally considered something of a “desert island” saw. An essential piece of equipment on construction sites and often recommended as one of the first power tools DIYers invest in, the vast majority of circular saws are designed for wood and wood based materials but there are also a handful of machines available for cutting metal. Circular saws are usually classed by the diameter of the blade they are compatible with; when choosing one you should also check the stated maximum depth of cut to ensure it is capable of cutting through any materials you are likely to be using.

Here's our Quick Application Guide:

• Wood Cutting Circular Saws – the standard circular saw, these tools come in quite a wide variety of sizes. They are available in corded and cordless variants, though it is worth noting that circular saws have historically been amongst the least energy efficient of cordless power tools, so a corded machine may be more suitable for intensive workloads.
• Plunge Saws – these have a unique plunge action and are generally a more expensive option which is designed to give a superior quality of cut to what is achievable with a standard circular saw. For more information please see the Plunge Saws category.
• Metal Cutting Circular Saws – these machines run at a speed which has been optimized specifically for cutting metal, and are not designed for use on wood (with the exception of multipurpose saws like the Dremel DSM20).

Circular saw safety:

Circular saw blades are capable of causing severe injuries and should always be used with due care and attention. Read the manual before using a new tool and wear suitable safety equipment (eye, ear and respiratory protection).
