This Laser Saw Will Show Darth Vader How To Cut Someone In Half.

I was raised using Black and Decker tools, my father gave me all of his tools since he is too old to use them anymore. Most of these tools are older than forty years old each. One at a time I have been having to replace all of these.  These tools have never failed me, so when I had a chance to purchase a new circular saw, there was not anything to think about when it came to which brand to choose from. Black and Decker stood on top of the liter scale. This Black and Decker 7 ¼” circular saw only cost sixty dollars and can be purchased any big box store.

Description
This saw also has a laser trac system which comes in very handy when making those long cuts. The 13 amp motor takes a lot to bind it up so that it will come into a bind and start smoking. This laser system helps with keeping your cut straight with out a straight edge. This has a 5/8” arbor and will hold any type or brand name of 7 ¼” blade, the more teeth that your blade the finer the cut will be. This will help with less splintering. This also has two handles to allow you to hold onto the saw and one to guide the saw. This has a flat metal plate that you will sit on top of the surface of your project and this metal plate will have a notch in it to allow for the kerf of the cut. This saw comes with a six foot electrical cord but I have found that this is usually not long enough so I have been using a 12 guage extension cord to help with this saws mobility. This draws thirteen amps under a load and has 5000 rpm, plus this will cut approximately 2-3/8” deep at a 90 degree angle and at a 45 degree angle you will have 1-13/16” deep.

Experience
I have experienced total happiness with the results of the completion of all of my projects that I have to do. Be it either an indoors or an outdoors project this saw will give you years of excellent service. This comes with an 18 tooth piranha carbide tooth blade that will cut through just about anything that you have to use this on. I have been using this for a couple of years and I have had to use this on 2” x 4”s, pine, walnut, particle board, and plywood. Even though this will cut through plywood fairly easily it is better to use a plywood blade to make a better and more accurate cut. The laser always comes in handy for those long cuts such as on sheets of plywood, you can make marks on the wood and then turn the laser on and keep this laser on those marks and you should have a fairly straight cut. You have to be careful not to drop this saw because if you do you could possibly bend the shoe that is attached to the bottom. If this becomes bent then the accuracy of your cut will become endanger of not being straight. I have also used this to trim the bottom of doors after we installed new carpeting. You can also use this on any projects that will include replacing any trim or window woodwork. This also comes in a hard plastic case and has a wrench to help with changing the blade.  

This also comes with a two year warranty but I do not think that you will have to worry about using it. I have yet to have any problems with this saw and the warranty does not cover the blade going dull. That is the only thing that you should have to replace if anything.

Conclusion
I highly recommend this saw by Black and Decker, it will stand up to any brand name on the market today. For the price of sixty dollars this saw will last you a lifetime. Five stars for this saw
