    What is a "groover" used for?

    I found this on my local craigslist. What is it used for?

    That's pretty interesting. Looks like a worm drive circular saw but it also looks like it cuts on the pull and not the push

    The only "groover" I know of is for pipe installs........

    How about removing the caulking from a double plank boat hull? I know they made a power tool to do this. I am pretty sure they had different width blades.

    Years ago, there was at least one circular saw, that had a dado blade attachment/cover. Last one I saw on Ebay, went for a pretty good amount.

    But that exact one is listed for plaster, and is also posted on Ebay.

    I saw another saw like this awhile back but I think it was a skil and had a wider dado blade. Heres an article I found on dado blade circular saws, it says about a worm drive saw with a dado blade used for wire and pipe grooves in beams(about half way down the link)
