Features Of The Best Corded Circular Saw 2017

There are a number of tools whose importance can always be underestimated and in fact, until you get those tools you never realize how useful they can be. If you happen to be a DIYer or a professional craftsman then one such tool that will help you accomplish your tasks is the corded circular saw. A corded circular saw is just an extremely powerful cutting tool, or more accurately an electrically powered blade, that allows you to complete tough woodwork projects including building furniture and remodeling parts of your home. To use a corded circular saw, you need not be a professional, but if you have never used one before you need to keep a few things in mind before you go to the market for your new circular saw. In this article, I discuss various specifications and strengths of the best corded circular saws available at our disposal today.

So what are the most important features that the very best corded circular saws are capable of offering? Well, firstly cutting features and design are important. If a tool can make cuts at a maximum depth of 2 or so inches at a 90 degree angle (which just means you are holding the blade perpendicular to the surface) then you can be certain that it is powerful enough to get almost every cutting job done. Of course the cutting capabilities are directly linked to the power features of the saw. The very best saws are the ones that operate at high speeds and are hence smoothly able to pierce through materials. As far as design goes, you are ideally looking for a tool that sports a well-balanced design. A good design means you can use the tool more conveniently and comfortably. Nobody wants a circular saw that is uncomfortable to handle, no matter how powerful it is. Apart from design and cutting capacity, a saw’s dust chute is important too. The chute should ideally blow the sawdust away from one’s cutting line so that you don’t have to constantly clear your eyes. Needless to say, there are high quality corded circular saws out there with smartly designed chutes that let you see and cut simultaneously, without any hassle so far.


A number of top-notch corded circular saws offer a spindle lock. This means you just need to press a button to secure the spindle and won’t have to employ multiple wrenches to detach the blade. Apart from this, the best corded circular saws come with long cords that allow you to move around with freedom. You might wonder: how long? Anything above 8 foot is good enough considering that you even have the option of attaching an extension cord.
