Circular saw upgrade

Lucy and the new Skil circular saw

Day 1 of the new Skil 15 amp circular saw started today.

Cutting logs of purchased firewood in half will be the main application.

It cuts like a hot knife through butter and highlights the cutting area with a laser.

FYI, just saw that Ace Hardware will have that exact saw for $79.99 on black Friday weekend.

Thanks for mentioning that. We paid closer to 100, but that might end up being cheaper when you factor in shipping costs. That saw is Heavy and comes in a big box.

Such a miter saw could also come in handy on future home improvement projects. It's hard to cut angles accurately with a handheld saw or on a standard table saw.
