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.

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.
