I resisted the urge to hijack the TS blade thread. After we sell the old house and pay off a bunch of debts I might someday have a leisure tool budget (I do have a plumbing tool budget, but plumbing is not a leisure activity). I enjoy using my EZ Smart system, but sometimes 7 1/4" is just shy of what I want to cut, so I am thinking about getting a 10" CS someday for use with the EZ Smart rails.
I know that with my RAS, I need to be very aware of using positive hook greater than 10 degrees or so for pull cuts, as blade climb may result with poor technique.
For a handheld circular saw, especially on a rail, are there any types of blades to avoid for safety reasons? It seems like [what, on a TS, would be called] a kickback event would simply bog the blade, right?
Is the TS blade discussion simply also relevant for handheld CSs?
