Circular saws come in a wide variety of sizes and types. It’s important to know the different parts of a circular saw, as well as how to choose the right one for your project.

To begin with, let's talk about the blade. The blade is probably the most important component of any circular saw. It is what does all the cutting, so it’s important that you choose a blade that fits your project and has the correct number of teeth for your particular cut. The size and tooth count can vary depending on what type of material you are cutting or how fine you need the cut to be. For instance, if you are cutting softwood, then you’ll need a blade with fewer teeth than if you were cutting harder woods like oak or walnut.

Another key component of any circular saw is the power source. Many models now have cordless batteries while others require an electrical outlet in order to run. Corded models are typically more powerful than cordless ones but they require an outlet nearby in order to operate them. Therefore, when selecting your circular saw, it’s important to factor in what type of power source is available for use.

The next component that needs consideration is the base plate or shoe which provides support for the blade and helps guide it through straight cuts; however, some high-end models also feature adjustable base plates which allow deeper cuts or angle cuts more easily than standard base plates would permit. Also pay attention to whether or not there are anti-vibration components incorporated into their design since this can help reduce fatigue while working with the tool over extended periods of time.

For those new to using a circular saw, look for models that offer additional safety features such as laser guides which help keep cuts straight and true and soft start motors which ramp up slowly so blades don't suddenly engage when turned on - reducing kickback risk at start-up time.  Finally, make sure that whatever model you purchase has appropriate dust collection capabilities so that clean up afterwards is easier and safer when dealing with particles from woodworking projects.

Safety First

Always wear hearing and eye protection when using any power saw. Keep loose-fitting sleeves, long hair and hoodie drawstrings tucked away. When making a cut, keep your hands in front of the saw - never behind it.

Great projects start with high-quality cuts, and you can make those cuts — more easily than you ever imagined — using your circular saw plus the Rip-Cut™ Circular Saw Edge Guide. The Kreg® Rip-Cut turns your circular saw into a precision edge-guided cutting tool that makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts in plywood, MDF, and other large sheets. With the Rip-Cut, you can cut with the confidence you want and the precision you need. The Rip-Cut easily makes straight, accurate, repeatable cuts without measuring, marking, or having to keep the saw on the cut line. The Rip-Cut does this with a long edge guide that follows the straight edge of the sheet you are cutting. So, all you have to do is lock the saw in at the measurement you want — up to 24" — using the built-in measuring scale, and then make your cut. With a built-in measuring scale, you don’t have to measure and mark each cut, either. Just lock the saw sled at your desired cut width, and you're all set, whether you need to cut one piece or make multiple pieces of the exact same size. Plus, the Rip-Cut makes it easier to cut down large sheets by yourself. The Rip-Cut is very easy to use. Simply mount your saw to the Universal Sled — it accepts most left-blade or right-blade saws — and then slide the sled onto the aluminum rail. After a simple one-time calibration, you can lock in your cut width (up to 24") using the measuring scale and precision cursor. Then, just hold the edge guide against the edge of your sheet as you guide the saw. You’ll get straight, accurate, repeatable cuts easily every time.

Safer smarter tapering jig system

Attach the MICRODIAL to 1 or 2 GRR-RIPPER models for the safest, most precise tapers you can achieve. The GRR-RIPPERs allow you to safely control your workpiece on table saws and router tables throughout your cut.

Cut legs on the table saw and route profiles on your router table with the MICRODIAL Tapering Jig. Handle wider panels with confidence. Rip smaller pieces at the perfect angle with the safety of the GRR-RIPPER and the MICRODIAL. The safest, most precise way to go.

Craft impeccable tapered legs.

Passion is found in the details; it’s what makes your art come to life. With the precision MICRODIAL system, it’s never been easier to cut adjacent tapers on a table saw. When cutting a 4-sided tapered leg, simply double your angle to compensate for the removed material on sides 3 and 4. If you’re set at 2°, simply reset the angle to 4° to finish the leg. Your project will have an elegant and sophisticated look with 2-, 4-, 6- or 8-sided tapered legs.

By combining GRR-RIPPERs and the MICRODIAL Tapering Jig, you can cut tapers up to 36 inches long depending on your saw and fence set up. (We suggest an outfeed and/or infeed table for additional stability).

Set your angle with the turn of a dial

With MICRODIAL’s two built-in dials, you can set your taper angle by degrees or rise over run.

Quickly and easily set the taper angle from 0 to 10 degrees with the turn of a dial. MICRODIAL is the only tapering jig with incremental and exact measurement markings to set the angle of your cut. So precise, it locks in angles as fine as 1/8th of a degree. The ColorMatch technology ensures accurate and easy set up using color-coded markings.

Using rise over run, you can set your taper based on the amount of material you want to remove. Simply set your taper up to 2 inch in 1/16 inch intervals to remove the exact amount you need. We even provide the simple

They are great value for money!!Tool accessories are consumables and need to be replaced frequently. We fully consider this to control the cost in a moderate range when manufacturing the blades and ensure superior performance. They are only slightly less durable than more expensive branded blades but can save you a lot of money.

High-Quality Materials

Our saw blades are made of high-quality high-carbon steel materials, which have good wear resistance and machinability, and reduce wear to a certain extent.

C-Clip Adapter

This kit includes an adapter. If the blade is loose when installing it, please use it with it.

Note: The tools installed by "Starlock" are not applicable to this product

Cut Quickly and Accurately

The inside of the saw blade is marked with a scale on one side as inches and the other side as millimeters to measure the cutting depth quickly and accurately, thereby improving work efficiency.
