Summary: Just your basic circular saw, but it is dependable. I have used many saws in my lifetime, but this is the best one can get when on a budget and it still cuts just as good as the more pricey ones. I would buy this brand even if I were rich. Pros: Cuts wood, metal and siding (blade change of course).
Summary: Excellent replacement for the Black&Decker that burned up. Convenient features, light weight, 13-amps , 2.3 horsepower. Comes with 18-tooth Carbide blade and tuck-away blade wrench. Power-On indicator, 1 year warranty. Read the enclosed manual FIRST .
Summary: Great saw that never fails me. I have used this tool on several home diy projects and it has been very reliable and easy to use. I don't use this saw for precision cuts for obvious reasons, but it is easy to operate and with the safety features I feel comfortable using it.
Summary: I bought this saw based on the price and the positive reviews last year. This year, when I really needed it (of course), the depth-adjustment mechanism broke. And not just broke a little bit, I mean this thing BROKE.
Summary: This Skil saw is a great value and is the perfect balance between price and function for the non-professional. I purchased this model saw 25 years ago and it recently died on me. It began making noises and the bearing probably wore out.
Summary: This saw arrived very quickly and I was impressed. Cut through plywood very easily and was very easy to guide. A couple of small complaints. The depth lever kept coming loose. I don't know if I just didn't have it tightened down enough or if this will be a consistent problem.

Summary: I love this saw, it's a bit heavy for someone with barely any arm strength, but I can still get the job done. Easy assembly, easy blade switch. Unfortunately, my box was missing the hardware/wrench, but I just ended up using one of my own socket wrenches to un tighten the bolt. So it worked fine.
Summary: This was a Christmas gift for my son-in-law who loves tools. (Actually, he loves all gadgets, widgets and tools but since he also loves my daughter, I'm not complaining!). He often borrowed our saw and was thrilled to have his own. How many circles need sawing is beyond my ken.
