D’s pick for this week’s #ToolTuesday: Dewalt Corded Circular Saw (DWE575SB) with Kreg Rip-Cut Circular Saw Edge Guide, which he says go together like peanut butter and jelly. 🥪
Now that we’ve officially launched our YouTube channel, we’re back in the workshop and starting on our next project! We won’t reveal what it is juuuuuuust yet, though you can get some sneak peeks in our Instagram stories (@justmightdiy). Nevertheless, this project required ripping some plywood, which is where this week’s #ToolTuesday pick comes from.
D chose the Dewalt Corded Circular Saw with the Kreg Circular Saw Edge Guide (Amazon affiliate links), as it made quick work of ripping plywood. When you don’t have a table saw, which we don’t because there’s not enough space in the shop right now, a circular saw is the next best bet for making cuts that are longer than what a compound miter saw can do.
The one we chose is the DWE575SB, which got great reviews on other woodworking sites. With an electric break, precise cuts and good dust management, picking this one over the others was a no-brainer.
If you’re wondering why we didn’t go with a cordless model, it wasn’t the cost. We tend to go for corded models of tools that will have heavy power draws, as there’s nothing worse than being mid project and having all of your batteries die. As the circular saw isn’t one that we’ll ever need far from a power outlet, we felt confident in going with the corded model.
As for the Kreg Edge Guide, that was definitely a good addition to the circular saw setup. We set the saw up on it in just a few minutes, and it made keeping the lines straight a cinch. Best of all, we can keep the base attached to the saw, even when it’s stored.
Both of these tools are new to the shop, and we’re loving them so far.
