Lowe's showing this as "new lower price." May not have to rush purchase.

Just as an FYI, this is a "left-handed" saw in that the blade is on the left side. it is reversed from a "regular" 7 1/4" circular saw. Heavy duty, Certainly overkill for the homeowner. FWIW.

Worm drive saws have the blade on the left side of the saw. For folks like myself, this is preferable because I typically lay out my cuts with my left hand so I can mark with my right. This leaves the waste end on the left side of the saw which is easier to see with the blade being on the left. They're also typically more powerful than regular field/stator driven saws. It's not a ton of difference, but I really enjoy mine.

Left handed isn't necessarily true. It's actually more comfortable to use with your right hand. Unless you meant like a left handed thread. Then you're right LMAO

No not really left handed. That is why I used quotes. Some people call it that because the blade is on the left side instead of the right. This style is very popular on the west coast but not so much of a preference on the east coast. It is really personal preference. I did not mean to scare anyone off from this.
I am just trying to point out the difference.TY for helping to clear it up.

Worm drive saws are preferred more on the west cost than the east coast. maybe TMI for this thread. I am just trying to help here.

This piece of crap SUCKS! The worst circular saw I have ever used. The blade spins backwards, so it has to go on back-side-out. It constantly came loose, usually in the middle of ripping 8' of plywood. Maybe just a bad one, but a $40 Craftsman saw put it to shame.

How about the Midwest? Jk. Always wanted a work drive saw but can't justify unless I am in need of a new saw.

Return it. It's got a miswired shading coil. (also not even close to safe to use.)

Confused by this. The 7 1/4" blade typically comes with a round hole in a diamond-shaped knock-out. I have a guy at work who mounted the blade on the saw without taking out the knock-out and then had to reverse the outer washer to get it to bolt up. If you are doing that, of course it could slip, but the mounting bolt is a left-hand thread that will tighten, not loosen, if the blade slips as it turns.

If you haven't done so already, take out the knock-out and mount the blade correctly. Otherwise, you may have a defective saw.

Whoa, I've never seen that, it spins clockwise? I just checked mine, it also turns clockwise, I guess I just wasn't paying attention. It's driven by the little diamond cutout on the arbor, it shouldn't spin loose. I'm going to look into this.
