DW359 Circular Saw Review
This circular saw from DeWalt is powerful and easy to use, especially for people with big hands who like big handles
This circular saw is comfortable, powerful, and easy to use, especially for people with big hands who like big handles. The blade-guard retraction lever is long, but it takes big hands to hold the blade guard open and to depress the spindle lock while changing blades. The bevel lock is small and prone to creeping as it is being tightened. The bevel adjustment knob is harder to operate than a lever, especially with gloves on. The baseplate of the saw we tested came out of the box with a slight fore and aft bend, which seemed to get worse over a month’s use, although the bend didn’t seem to affect the saw’s cutting ability.
