Metal Cutting Circular Saws 411
Metal cutting circular saws are specially designed with a metal cutting blade that accomplishes a clean cut through metal, without heating the metal more than needed. The benefit of having a metal cutting circular saw, versus a general circular saw, is that the speed is specifically engineered for efficient metal cutting. A metal cutting circular saw can quickly cut through metal, while a regular circular saw is slower and can bind. Metal cutting circular saws are designed for far more cuts and require much less cool down time. In addition, this type of saw allows for a quicker transition time and creates noticeably less burrs, meaning you won’t have to spend much time filing down and cutting off excess pieces of metal. Also, with a metal cutting circular saw you will have less metal debris flying off, which aids in protecting the tool. So, to recap a metal cutting saw is faster, cleaner, and creates less fly off than other circular saws.
