Pretty funny stuff, Cliff. I like the photo of the dual router motors with 7 1/2" saw blades as wheels. Wouldn't want that one to get loose in the shop.

Hold the guard open on a circular saw with a masonry nail and you can get the same kind of action.:eek:

tod,
I can not in good conscience recommend to any other person that they disable the blade guard on a circular saw. When I began doing it to my Milwaukee 7 (now deceased), it was after many years of running angle grinders, so I had developed an awareness of a still rotating cutter when setting tools down.

Now for carpentry I use a Mag 77 which I typically hang on a hook on a sawhorse.
