I need a circular saw. Any ideas?
Hi all! Hope you had an enjoyable Christmas holiday.
I think I'm in the market for a new circular saw. I'd like to keep it around 100.00 or less. Not opposed to going refurbished. I picked up the PC 324 and a Bosch (didn't look at the model number-at Home Depot) and both of them felt good in the hand. I tried the Ridgid, but it has a lever that continually pokes the back of my hand. Anything else anyone would suggest? The Milwaukees are out of my price range, worm drives too and too heavy to boot. The nicer Skills might be ok, but haven't heard anything much about them, other than their worm drives. Need to drop by Lowes tomorrow and see if they have the Hitachi. There is one model with a brake for around 110.00. Makita didn't feel very good in my hand. Guess I could go look at the B&Ds.... Sorry.
Seriously, any ideas would be helpful. Any specials you know about, rebates, coupons, etc would also be nice to know. Toolseeker didn't have much. Haven't found any Amazon specials today while poking around. A 25.00 off 150.00 might get me to go a little extra to a saw with a brake. TIA!! Jim.
