Circular Saw

I'm shopping for a Circular Saw, nothing fancy and it will only get used a couple times a year. Tired of borrowing Dad's saw

I've been briefly looking at some Craftsman Saws as well as Dewalt. So what kind of circular saw do you own and or recommend?


Remember, I don't need a $200 to $400 Pro Carpenter saw I'm looking at $100 or less...

I have one here at the shop that I got at Home Depot for $40.00. It works fine.

I also have several at home that cost over $300.00. They work fine too.

Craftsman I've had for 20+ years, and a Dewalt 18v cordless with 5-3/8" carbide blade that is perfect for cutting aluminum plate.

Sawsall will work too, and you can use it to knock down a tree or saw a car in half.
Damon, I'd look at any flea market or farm sale, there are usually a couple for sale and they almost always work and rarely bring more than $5-10.

I've got a Craftsman that cost $59 on sale and it get's the job done. I'm not much of a carpenter. so I'm not going to waste my money on top line wood tools. It has good power, has a laser to show the cut line (somewhat useful) and came with a storage case and was cheap

I went to school with a girl named Makitia.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

I mostly sell Dewalt so thats what I push. They have the best kickbacks

For a cheap saw that works decent look for a Skill #5400 or 5450 for a little over $50. Dewalt Makita Milwaukee Porter Cable etc saws all run $100+

I have 2 makita saws. One of them has been dropped off roofs, ladders,etc and other than some battle scars keeps going.
The other saw stays on the ground.
I purchased both of them in the mid 80's.
Sears has them for $89.99 which is cheaper than I paid in the 80's.
