I baptized my new circular saw yesterday--sorry no photos yet, and after an afternoon with it, I have some new questions.
1. I worked outside and had on all the safety gear known to man and found that I was still covered in sawdust at the end of the afternoon. Do you folks have woodworking clothes/shoes that you leave at the door to your shop? Do you have extensive dust collections systems that eliminate this problem? Do you track it all over the house? Or other?
2. The manual with the CS says to hold it with both hands--and there are 2 handles. LOML says to hold it with one and hold the wood with the other. If I hold the saw with 2 hands should I be clamping down the wood I'm cutting? On one side? On both sides?
3. Router bits. I want a router bit to cut rabbets. For the sake of discussion, if I got one designed for a 3/4" rabbet, can I cut narrower rabbets with it by moving closer to the edge? like anything < 3/4"?
Thanks all, more questions tonight I'm sure after today's sawdust session.
