You would likely get more for yours (even with the jack-up table), and here's why:

The one you have - it hasn't been butchered yet by some dumazz with a wire wheel thinking it would look purtier.

That eBay saw is good for only internal parts now.

Re: Circular Saw Thread (*-*)


I'm in the market for a new left hand blade sidewinder. My favorite saw has been the Porter Cable L-H Mag... but I see it is no longer made thanks to DeWalt buying PC. I have been considering the Milwaukee L-H Tilt-Loc, how are the Milwaukee circular saws? for some reason I have never been a fan but don't know why because I have never used one.

In 1924, the original Milwaukee Electric Tool Corporation was established by Albert Siebert from assets of the A.H. Petersen Manufacturing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

In 1976, the Siebert Lutheran Foundation sold its interest in Milwaukee Electric Tool Company to Amstar Corporation (formerly known as American Sugar Company) of New York.

In 1993, Amstar merged with Essex Industries, a lock and door company, to form Esstar Corporation.

In 1995, Esstar sold Milwaukee Electric Tool Company to Atlas Copco of Sweden.

In 2005, Atlas Copco sold Milwaukee Electric Tool (and Atlas Copco Electric Tools) to Techtronic Industries (TTI) of Hong Kong.

In addition to Milwaukee, TTI's brands currently include Ryobi, AEG, and Homelite. One World Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of TTI, also manufactures RIDGID® woodworking tools for Emerson Professional Tools.

The one that feels good to you, in the price range your are comfortable with, and with a warranty/service program that works in your area...

...something like that, I guess.

Or, find a brand nobody has ever heard of, so they can't cite numerous reasons why its a piece of chit, or why theirs is better?

Re: Circular Saw Thread (*-*)


The case is really cheesy & the latches break easy. Blow it out good after cutting Hardie or the bearings will howl. I never had these problems with my Milwaukee tilt (which was stolen from me).

Re: Circular Saw Thread (*-*)


Sometimes I get to use one of these:


Was an older friends fathers from when he was an electrician. Its still the only circ saw she will use. I don't like it because Its too heavy (for my delicate hands). She didn't even know the blade could be changed so the first thing I did was change the blade to cheap a carbide one(It had a 20ish year old steel one on it). The saw doesn't get used much because she doesn't trust herself not to get hurt on most power tools. She also doesn't like jigsaws because they don't cut 2x4's all that well.

Anyone know the model Number? All the stickers are missing off the one I sometimes use except the B&D sticker on the guard, no engravings or plates either. The picture is one I found online. The blade in the pic looks like its smaller than 7 1/4 but the saw my friend has is a 7 1/4".
