  • What does this mean?

    Provided Link: "That"


    "45-degree bevel capacity allows for the flexibility to make a wide range of cuts"
    im looking at the "Skil
    7-1/4 In. 12 Amp Circular Saw

    Model 54HD"

    At home depot... does that mean i can make cuts so that if two board's ends were cut at a 45 degree angle, i could flip over one and it will become a 180* straight line two piece board? OR it will simply become an angled cut and it'll end up at like the it has a corner... if u piece the two boards together...

    It'll end up like that???

    It means that the circular saw will cut anywhere from 0-45 degree angles. How you cut them is up to you. Two 45s = a 90 degree angle. Example, during the design phase of the Crown Facets, the angle needed was 76.5 degrees. Well, my saw only does 45. What do you do? Ah, take 90-76.5=13.5degrees. Turn the board to the side needed and cut. When you turn it over it becomes 76.5 degress. Grab some graph paper and protractor, or you use the slope of a line (the pythagorium theory), or use the arc tangent if you like trig.

      Two 45s make 90 degrees,if you cut two and put them together you will end up with a square corner and the joint will look like a picture frame. A.H.

        It can also make a lap joint. which is often used when trimming a house. Rather than butt 2 pieces together with 90 degree ends, a 45 degree cut is used on each piece so they actually "slide" onto each other.

          Correct, as were the other posts. But don't buy any Skil brand tools, they are of marginal quality.

                What type of jobs do you want to do with it?
                You could probably find an old table saw for $70

                  AH! no space for me =( apartment o_o. what i wanna do with it is cut boards, like melemine? i think it was... it was some cheap 3 dollar each board at home depot in my neighborhood...

                  it was sold at $3.19 for a 3/4" thick 5ft by 11"(around there). It was cheap and solid..

                  i got my first subwoofer cabinet done with them and its pretty ok wood it seems(to me). I was thinking of using it again but this time with 1" thick panels. I want this thing to be as solid as possible. i need the degree accuracy because of the hexagonal shape of the speaker. the rear end... where they meet

                      Exception to that are the various Skil worm drive circular saws, a good rugged tool for rough carpentry IMO. A lot of the other stuff from Skil is crap, no argument.
