A circular saw is known for its ability to cut wood. However, today with the invention of new types of masonry blades, these saws are able to cut through masonry and stone. The lightweight saws are fitted with blades that were once only used on the masonry saw itself. Now, these circular saws help homeowners with a range of products involving tiles and stone.
Using a Circular Saw Masonry Blade - A circular saw is a hand held power tool that uses an electric motor. The more powerful, the faster it will cut through wood. However, the power of the saw affects how it is used on stone. When a circular saw masonry blade is used on stone it creates a great deal of friction. It is up to the operator to determine how much friction the blade will handle.
