  • Worm Drive vs Circular Saw

    Can anyone tell me the advantage using a worm drive saw compared to a circular saw or vise versa?

      Worm drives are circular saws. LOL The worm drives are basicallty stronger due to the gear drive instead of direct motor drive saws. Mostly used for construction where continuos usage on heavy lumber. They are a lot heavier than standard Circular saws. If your just a DIYer or hobbiest I would not recommoned a worm drive saw. If you want the left blade that worm drives have look at the porter cables. That is what I use.

        Worm drive has the blade on the left, so us right handed folks can actually see what the hell we are cutting.

        In addition, they are powerful, especially for using on wet/treated wood! Good blade and no binding or holding up!

        THe thing i like about them (bought mine at the pawn shop), old skil's

        1) Last forever
        2) HEAVY! (helps cut straighter) [img]smile.gif[/img]

        Yeah makita and now i believe milwaukee gives you the option of getting your blade on the left or the right of the saw, but the worm drive is powerful!
