hello my name is gena, i love working
with wood, i make one of a kind items,
very unique items actually, i love all my
drills, i love all my tools, and they love me.
recently i purchased two circular saw's, i have 12 different hand saw,s
that ive always,and only have used in the past.
regarding the circular saw, well i read the instructions, and was
terrified, for two months two beautiful craftsman circular saw's have
and are still in their box's.
The instructions, over an over spoke of the kick-back, how dangerous it
how the kick-back can cut your head off,
i am scared to death to use it.
Please tell me it ain't that bad, give me the simplicity, of the correct
use, and how
i am making a big deal out of nothing.
My neighbor said that i am to little
for the saw, i am 5'1 and 110, iam not to little, right?

I have a circular saw. I don't much like it. It doesn't like me either. I
only use it to cut plywood panels and trim doors. I have no use for it
otherwise. I am not a tiny girl like you, but I can handle it well enough. I
don't feel its any more unsafe then my table saw, radial arm saw or mitre
saw. Its just a handy thing to have around.
She's got tools, and she knows how to use them.

a circular saw can be dangerous. an underpowered and lightly built
circular saw is in my opinion more dangerous than a heavy more
powerful one. sears saws tend to be on the light, underpowered end of
the spectrum. however, with some care it can be very handy and pretty
Here are a couple of links to some reading matter on the subject:
If you are feeling a bit intimidated by the noise and the whirling
sharp blade, try this: set up your cut, with whatever guides and
supports you will be using and go ahead with it- but with the blade
removed from the saw. this will give you a feel for the noise level,
how your balance will be when you are reaching the end of the cut, how
long an extension cord you will be needing, and how the saw feels in
your hand- all with no danger of cutting off your head. then, when you
are sure you have the setup right, put the blade back on and make the
cut for real.
