This is a type of power saw
that utilizes rotary motion to cut materials. Unlike other saws, the circular saw utilizes a toothed blade or abrasion disc that rotates around on an arbor. Notably, the ring saw also utilizes the same type of rotary motion but it is not considered a circular saw. The circular saw was discovered in the 18th century to help with wood cutting. Now, the modern circular saw is advanced and can be used to cut plastic, wood, metal and even masonry. The blade used for cutting must be harder than the workpiece. The saws are very effective, especially for making cross and rip types of cuts. In most of the cases, circular saws work with a motor
powered by electricity. However, some models are powered by hydraulic or gasoline. When using a circular saw, make sure to also have the right accessories. Visit our page to see the varying models of circular saws.
