Editor's Review: Tool Test: Sidewinder Circular Saws

review date: January 19, 2012

Cutline markers are good at both 90° and 45° cutting angles, and the blade guard operates smoothly at all angles. Bevel angles are set with a short steel lever, and the 56° scale has engraved numbers marked at every degree, with spring-loaded detents that lock in solidly at 22.5° and 45°. The plastic composite baseplate is stiff and durable, and visibility to the blade is clear. The offset distances from the left and right edges of the baseplate to the blade are convenient measurements of 5 in. and 1-1⁄2 in., respectively. The trigger has a nice low-profile feel, and despite being just a little on the slick side, the rear grip is also comfortable. A low-mounted front handle adds greatly to the saw’s balanced, stable feel.
