Hello folks. I’m looking for recommendations for a circular saw for breaking down sheet goods. I’d use some kind of guide, maybe a homemade one. (Actual track saws are outside my budget.) Here’s what I’m thinking:
Corded, because they seem more powerful for the money. And I’m not working up in rafters or at a job site.
Blade-right. I think? Normally I’d like blade-left so I can see the cut as it happens, but with a guide that’s less important. The track saws i’ve seen are blade-right, and some guides have the saw riding on top of a piece of masonite or something, so blade-right allows the guide to support more of the saw’s weight. Your thoughts?
I don’t know what else. I can imagine an adjustable shoe so it stays parallel to the blade would be good. Low run-out, durable bearings, etc.? I don’t know shit about circular saws.
I’d appreciate any input. Thanks!
