  11. Cheap but decent circ saw for dedicated track saw?

    Both of my hand circular saws are worm gears, and I don't want to take them out of the general-use rotation by rigging them up as track saws – plus, they're heavy, and I want something lighter – so...

    FWIW, I've found that it really, really, really wants to lift away from the blade (with presumably unhappy outcomes after that), so I usually cut it on bandsaw now.

    Never worked pecan, except for with a chainsaw after a big one came down in the yard.
