Power Tools: Circular saw
Scott Gibson, Contributing Editor
The guide is backed with strips of rubber so it wont slide on the surface even if its not clamped in place. A zero-clearance rubber guide along one edge helps to prevent chipping. The saw works with an unusual plunge-cutting action, so it can start and stop cuts in the middle of a panel. An adjustable-speed switch allows it to be used on a variety of materials.
The saw cost $375 in September 2004.
