Looks pointless to me - a one handed circular saw? These tools can really kick back if you don't use them steadily and straight, you need 2 hands for a steady/straight cut on a circular saw and to minimise kickback.

Great price, but according to all the reviewers on the Argos website it's impossible to get hold of replacement blades (_;)

These are a great tool, the blades last for ages. They are great for laminate and for making a thin cut where its just to narrow for a jig saw and a little to much for a plane. There biggest limitation is the depth of cut which is limited by the blade diameter. They will not cut deep enough to trim an interior door or cut normal thickness worktop. I have never had any problems using mine one handed, the blade RPM is so high they do not snag, you just have to remember to let it cut at its own speed, (which is fast) and not force it through a cut.

The desc. on Homebase says it cuts tiles, stone, aluminium, plastic and brick but doesn't mention the cut depth :-/

This is very helpful. I was going to buy one for dismembering my victims corpses but from what you say this is unsuitable.

just collected mine .. seems good .

Needed to cut some precise openings in the wooden flooring to fit new pipes, this turned out to be perfect. I could cut the wooden floor first then the plywood under that separately. There is a knack to doing it so practice first on some odd pieces. My flooring is being replaced later this year so the gouge marks from the kick backs in the middle of the kitchen floor don't bother me to much... Best method I found was to start spinning just above the wood to be cut then very slowly 'land' on it. Make sure nobody else is in the same room and the cable is running behind you. Bought at Homebase, they price matched Argos and Nectar points. Prices change weekly though.

Got me self one too...Pretty handy...

Price gone up?!

Dam great sale price :-( I paid much more for this and as a tradesman I was thinking I had wasted my money But it paid for itself first use -blade depth can be set but the full depth cut is 22mm and blades are also available at Online at Saxton Blades which are very easy to change. Its light safe and very easy to use, and I don't have to lug round my much larger Circular Saw,the laser light is very handy with a option lamp too -not used the tile cutting blade but I mainly use it for floor boards or thinner timber or even cutting inspection holes in plaster board. very useful tool

ive had to exchange mine. the handle started to get very hot when used at max depth through chipboard. Homebase exchanges no problems but the same has happened again must be a desgin fault or rubbish torque. anyway might be worth buying a more expensive one. its definately not worth full price..but what is nowadays
