Circular saws vs Framing Saws (Specifically Ridgid Fuego)
At the risk of asking a dumb question, I’m a little confused when it comes to buying a circular saw.
I’m currently in the market for a circular saw. I will mostly be using the saw to cut 2×4’s for framing but I also interested in a saw that I can use to rip MDF/Plywood for making formica countertops. The saw I’m most interested in the Ridgid Fuego Framing Saw. This has also caused me some confusion though. I like the lighter weight and smaller size of the Feugo but I’m worried that it may only be used for rough cuts and I wouldn’t be able to rip sheets of MDF.
I guess my question would be. Can the Fuego be used to rip sheets of MDF accurately? What about cutting length off doors and for trim work? Does the fence on the Fuego allow the saw to be used easily with a straight edge?
I know this may seem kind of obvious but I’m a little overwhelmed by all the different choices, so any advice would be appreciated.
