Tuning Up a Circular Saw
A few quick tune-up tips can improve performance when cutting joint-quality edges with a circular saw
To use a circular saw in your woodworking shop, you need to think of it as “a precision saw, not just a 2×4 cutter,” says Southern California woodworker Gary Williams, who employs a circular saw for many woodworking tasks. In this video, Williams shares his tune-up strategy, which includes adjusting blade wobble and tuning the fence and blade to ensure a straight and square cut.
Watch Williams in two more videos where he demonstrates his circular saw cutting bench and shares tips and jigs for cutting sheet goods and rough lumber with a circular saw.
