The main things you should be looking out for when choosing a circular saw are cutting capacity, cutting depth and bevels. The capacity and depth of your cut with a circular saw is based on the size of the saw’s blade. In the case of our cordless circular saws, the blade is a standard 165mm.
Which circular saw size is best?
The most common and useful size for DIYers is 7 and 1/4 inches. Saws this size will cut through material more than 3-inches thick, and they also offer the widest variety of blade choices for cutting substances other than wood.
How do I choose a circular saw blade?
Generally, blades with more teeth will provide a smoother, finer cut whereas blades with fewer teeth will provide a rougher cut. The benefit of fewer teeth is faster cutting and a lower price. For most construction work, a 24-tooth general use blade is sufficient.
What size of circular saw blade do I need?
Handheld circular saws accept smaller blades, those 4-1/2 inches to 7-1/4 inches in diameter. These are typically carbide-tipped. Tile saws use 7-inch or 10-inch diamond blades. Table saws and compound miter saws use blades 10 inches or 12 inches in diameter.
