    i use battery saws to cut hardi plank siding because they turn at 1000 rpms of less and there is minimal dust. they have appox. 3 3/8 carbide blades. the speed is the key to dust free cutting. i am tired fo battery's because of the extreme cold and there low life span. i want a tool that has a cord. what is out there that will turn at these low rpms.

    Check out the Milwalke metal cutting circular saw. It should accept a wood blade, and it turns about 3500 RPM whereas a typical skill saw I believe turns about 4500 RPMs.

    Harbor frieght sells a cheapo version in store only.

        Here's a pic to entice you to visit the web page.

        I'll just post the link cause it's a large image.

        I've seen a number of favorable write-ups on this saw on various web sites and in a couple mags.
        "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
        John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
