About Our Saws

What are Circular Saws used for?

A circular saw is a tool for cutting many materials such as wood, masonry, plastic, or metal and may be hand-held or mounted to a machine. In woodworking, the term "circular saw" refers specifically to the hand-held type and the table saw and chop saw are other common forms of circular saws.

Which is better Jigsaw or Circular Saw?

Although a jigsaw can be used for most of the tasks that a circular saw can perform, including straight cuts and cuts on a tilt, the jigsaw uses that really take advantage of the tool's qualities are jobs such as kitchen fitting and joinery, with their frequent need for complex cuts.

Why does my Circular Saw get stuck?

It could be something as simple as the spacer that goes on the nut that holds the blade on. Try tightening the blade. If the saw has a clutch it's disengaging because there's too much torque going to the blade. Make sure you are holding your cut items properly.

What are Trim Saws used for?

Trim saws are just part of the larger tapestry. They mainly help in trim work, and they feature a smaller blade usually less than 6 inches. They are used for finessing and precise cutting, achieving accuracy levels that circular saws cannot.

What is a Plunge Saw?

A plunge saw has a different design which removes the need for a conventional retractable blade guard, as the blade is enclosed within the machine. The blade can be plunged at any point into the material you are cutting.

Can you use a Plunge Saw without the track?

The plunge mechanism on the track saw makes it hard to use without the track. Plus, you would have to change blades to cut something else.

What are Jigsaws used for

Jigsaws are primarily used to make curved, intricate cuts in wood, but can also cut through a number of other materials such as plastic, sheet metal and ceramic tile. Although jigsaws excel at making curved cuts, they can also be used to make plunge cuts, straight cuts and bevel cuts.
