Zero Clearance Circular Saw......


I got a solicitation in the mail some years back offering a circular saw which would make a cut right up against a wall. The blades were made special for the saw which, was obviously special too.
The blade had a slight inset where the arbor nut would not even gouge a trough along the wall.
I kept that brochure for several years knowing I was going to buy that saw "anytime now" but never got around to it.
I can't remember the name of the comapny or saw. I want to say it was a eed saw but that not for sure. i do belive it was a small independent manufacturer.
Anyone can throw any leads my way, I need that saw next week.
I will probably end up sacrificing one of my existing saws and fabricating one, but I have better things to do if I can just buy it.

Re: Zero Clearance Circular Saw......


I have seen a picture of a zero clearance saw, but beats me where....and now I remember...there is one on E-bay right now....it is a jamb saw that is made from a conventional circular saw. Try the contruction category, and seach nearest....I am pretty sure that is how I spotted it. Since we are only 200 miles apart as the crow flies, you would get most of the search hits I get....and when it occured to me where I saw it, I was going to suggest an old jamb saw would work.

There was a thread about cutting flooring out without removing the baseboard trim.

Crain was one saw that was recommended. Perhaps you're looking for something larger?

Nope that ain't it. That's a cool saw but the one I am looking for is an otherwise standard issue circ but with the flush cut capability.
