      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This bright orange monster of a boy?s toy is ideal for all those small jobs around the house. I have had circular Saws before and have always had problems with the cord getting in the way or jammed. So for safety and convenience this, to me looked ideal. It comes in its own box along with a battery and a charger. The charger was my first surprise as I have various cordless appliances that have inevitably run out of power at the wrong time. Re-charging took ages, but with this little beauty it only takes an hour to be fully charged. It also has two lights the green one lights whilst charging and the red one when charging has finished. It has an automatic cut off so it won?t over charge. This is a small saw aimed at the DIY end of the market though it still provides a professional cut. It has a 136mm blade and can cut up to 41mm and weighs in at 3k. If features a unique window sight guide. This is a see through area allowing you to see the blade actually cutting. This comes in to its own when you first use the saw. It enables you to align the site guide to the cut of the blade. There is a depth of cut adjustment and a mitring system that can be set up to 45%. The all important blade guard this covers the entire blade and retracts once the blade starts to cut the wood. The trigger can only be operated once the lock-off button has been depressed. This is a rocker switch that is just out of reach of your thumb as you hold the saw. This is a safety feature as you have to use your other hand to operate the switch as both have to operated at the same time switch and the trigger (if that makes since) to start the blade running. The instruction manual is very comprehensive, written in plain terms and easily understandable, interestingly to is only in written in English. This B&D Cordless Circular Saw retails at about £100 I have seen others that cost far more so this is a bargain. Especially if you drop on like I did and snapp
      ed it up for half price, what a bargain. You can see it at http://webserver.diygear.com/acatalog/DiyGear_com_Circular_Saws___DIY_799.html
