Laser is just a gimmick IMHO. Invisible unless you're sawing in a dimly lit room and even then it's only 'in focus' for about 10cm in front of the saw.

How is it apart from that? Any good?

Remember seeing an Everyday Value circular saw in Tesco for under £15 a few years ago. Probably nowhere near as good as this one but a shame they don't still do it...

No reviews, anyone know if this is any good? Thanks

Perfect combination

...what with the lasers and all.

Seems a good price this. Anyone used this before?

Wow, you have a good memory.

Would this be good to cut a kitchen worktop (4 cm)?

Thanks.

Good for 8/10mm laminate ?

Not voting either way, but I've been looking at some DIY-level saws recently and Homebase's Guild-branded saw is about 22 quid (2 year guarantee). Has only two reviews, both positive, so read into it what you will. Cuts a bit deeper and has a faster rotational speed than this one, but a bit less powerful. Aldi's one comes with two blades if I understand correctly, and has the ""laser"" (I just had to use double double inverted commas). Just putting some options out there.

Can't comment on how good this particular saw is...

If it comes with a 48 tooth blade (which it suggests it does) then yes, you'll probably get away with it (fine for an end or an edge that won't remain visible, poss ok for an end that needs edging strip if you're very careful, no chance for making a joint though). You're best off flipping the worktop over (particularly if laminate) and cutting with the underside facing upwards and from the front to back. That'll reduce chipping of the surface (as these cut upwards) and I'd clamp a straight edge to run against rather than trying to use the fence or laser... If trying to join then you'll need a router, template etc at which point I'd recommend getting someone in.

Thanks for the advice. It is the edge of the worktop that I need to cut so this should be fine. I think I will give it a go.

Very good advice. Can also use a sacrificial piece of wood clamped on to minimise the chipping
