Worx mini circular saw 710w - Amazon £84.32

Worx plunge circular saw. Sub £90 seems like a good deal for the one with an extra bit of power.

Good cutting depth too.

Thanks, I’ve been waiting for this to drop! Ordered and heated.
Been using the 400w one and loved it, but.....

Today it started veering to the left quite badly. I even clamped a rail down for it to slide along, but it kept trying to dive into the rail and the saw kept stopping. It happened on 5 spots on a 2m cut! Each time it gradually tried to move towards the rail then started to jam, I can't work out why but there seems to be a very small discrepency in the base of about 0.5mm that may be the culprit.

I do like the tool itself though, maybe I should try the more powerful one?
Just talked to amazon, they said send the old one back for a full refund so gonna order this one and see if it was just a bit weak.

If it was pulling, I suspect there was damage to the blade. It can be subtle, but a bent tooth would cause that behaviour. Either way, time for an upgrade!

The problem is finding something to cut


My OH has a shop, she's just moving into a new one thats a right hole. I've been in there for the last 4 weeks between my main job and have used the other saw quite a bit! That said I think I cut the last bit of slatwall last night. Damn!

They do pull terribly, though generally to the right. I only use mine for rough cutting now, I'd never attempt to use it on anything that needs cutting accurately. It's got its uses but it's cons outweigh it's pros, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone as an alternative to a decent circular saw (and for this money you can get a Makita or DeWalt) unless you specifically need the plunge feature.

Interesting, mine was really pulling left and I'm sure the base wasn't 100% in line with the blade. New one is out for delivery, if that acts the same it goes back as well.

See how you get on. If you have the same issues and don't need the plunge cut then maybe look at the conventional Makita (165mm blade I think) at £80.
