    Dave, the title of the tread invites critical reviews, "6 1/4 Circular saw regrets". You have an opinion too or else you wouldn't be reading this far in. In the world I operate in, which is...

    They work sort of. I have not found one that is remotely close enough to accurate to be useful for trim. I use a Leica Disto for quoting sometimes. It is probably the best out there, but it is...

    We have an old army base nearby, it's been taken over by the state game and parks and turned into a tourist location. The old quartermasters building is now a theatre, they put on shows all summer...

    Our beloved government has criminalized the act of altering the "environment" systems on diesels, meaning that it is illegal to even try to figure out a solution that alters the system or that does...

    Consider an armed guard, I'm still seeing timbertech and trex over $120/16' here. Ipe is half the cost of it, we are going to be doing a few ipe decks finally.

    I'll concede that maybe if lighter saws = better, a DW 573 is 8.2# with a 7 1/4" blade, and a DW 565 is 6.3# with a 6 1/2" blade. I don't agree with that though, the reason we use worm drives is the...

    It's not a bad deal probably. I'm betting the "blade drive shaft out of alignment" is either a pulley moved or the saw just needs aligned. Both are easy. It's a griz, but it does have a decent...

    If the problem is you just want them printed larger, not a scaling problem, you can have them printed even up to blueprint size pretty reasonably. blueprintsprinting.com is what I use.

    Why would you want a 6 1/4" saw, I can't think of any reason you would benefit from one? 7 1/4" is not a big saw, what are you gaining by losing capacity with the smaller ones?

    I get it if you...

    We've got a big Makita in the shop that I don't let anyone else use because it's just too prone to catching. If you want to get rid of the problem, use a big right angle with the anti-kickback...

    The reason I dislike the Milwaukee ossilator is the design of the tool. It's battery is on an angle so the tool won't stand up, the switch is really poorly designed compared to most others, and blade...

    No, an oscillator saw is not as good as they claim. A milwaukee is near the bottom of the prefered tool list, and the blades needed to perform the various tasks will be surprisingly expensive.

    Exactly. I personally do not like the domino machine better than the other ways that I cut floating tenon, so I don't use it much.

    Analysis paralysis going on here, it's not detail oriented thinking, it's just good old fashioned indecisiveness. If you want that board trimmed, just do it. Pick a way and go. You'd be done with...

    Rod, I don't disagree. Around here we even heat underground well houses in the winter with a single 100 watt light bulb which will do an acceptable job to keep the frost out.

    They self regulate, you don't have the option to add more if you want. Just top of the oil cup periodically, it'll run for days or maybe even weeks with one fill, and forget about it.
