Are circular saws hard to use?
These simple tools are easy to use once you know how to use them. This guide will teach you how to use a circular saw safely, so that you can be confident and comfortable when cutting with it.
How shallow can a circular saw cut?
Standard models of circular saws can cut only about 2 1/2 inches deep. The curve limitation does not allow for work-arounds around the shallow cut.
Which way do the teeth face on a circular saw?
If the teeth are pointing downward, a clean cut can be made. The operator can be injured if their teeth are up-facing.
Can I use a jigsaw instead of a 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.
Which side of the line do you cut?
We recommend cutting to the outside of the line when possible. You can take more wood off, but you can’t get it back when you’re done cutting. The blade should be on the side of the line.
