My 25 year old B&D Circular Saw finally bit the dust today. I was using it to saw down 2x4's for framing my friends step yesterday and noticed a slight smokiness in the air. Today I went back to remove the forms and cut up the pieces to put in the trash. It started, but was running a bit slow, the second set of boards it wouldn't turn over.
I mourned for a few minutes, but quickly got over it and went to the blue borg.
I didn't spend to much on one, just a 2.5 hp sidewinder. The old one I did use for breaking down sheet goods quite a bit, but I plan to pickup either the Grizzly or Makita track saw for that purpose soon.
