Worm Drive Circular Saw
secure the wood
know how the blade cuts up from below
start the motor away from the material
stand to the side so a kick back misses your body
let the cut fall open
Sidewinder Circular Saw
ditto, but for the opposite hand
Corded Reciprocating Saw
press table guard firmly against the material AND press down to cut
Cordless Reciprocating Saw -
good starter, less torque, but maybe all you need
again, start slowly
must press down the nose
great training saw!
