Why do circular saws cut upwards?
The circular saw blades have teeth that are meant to cut up the material from below. It’s important that you don’t spin them in a different direction than you do the table saw blade.

You can cut something with a saw blade that is backwards. It’s a bad idea. If the saw blade is run backwards, the saw tips are more likely to come off and the whole saw blade is more likely to break.
Can I cut metal roofing with a circular saw?
If you don’t have gloves on, it is easy to cut yourself on the metal roofing. You don’t want to use a high speed skill saw because it will cause too much heat. If you have to cut circles around, take some time to figure it out.
Can you turn a wood blade around to cut metal?
It’s possible to use a wood cutting blade for soft non-ferrous metals like brass and aluminum, but it won’t have the flexibility of angle cuts. It is not a good idea to use the wood cutting blade on steel or iron.
Why is my circular saw blade slipping?
The blades they’re making are thinner than the older blades and some of the older saws have to be adjusted to prevent blade slippage. A very thin kerf blade can spin if the inner and outer nuts are not connected.
When should I change my circular saw blade?
When it’s time to replace a circular saw blade, look for worn-down, broken and missing teeth or chips in the tips of the blade. Use a bright light and magnifying glass to see if the wear line on the edges is starting to dull.
