Circular Saws that Get the Job Done

Ready for any tough job, this 7 1/4" Circular Saw brings the power of a 14 amp, 5,000 rpm motor to the site. Whether you’re ripping through plywood boards, plunge-cutting a floor to make way for new plumbing or putting a sharp mitered edge on a board, this saw delivers fast, accurate cuts you can count on. And featuring the clear visibility of a laser guide, you can stay on mark while moving fast, even in low light.

A wide, flat-ground aluminum shoe gives this Craftsman more stability than other Circular Saws while the easy to grasp bevel adjustment locks in angles up to 54-1/2 degrees for clean, tight fitting joints. For added workshop and jobsite safety, a Live Tool indicator glows whenever this saw is plugged in, not the only notable light, this saw features the illumination of a bright LED that makes even the faintest pencil mark clear even in dark working conditions. Ergonomically designed and built for job after job of solid service, this circular saw helps you get it done for years. Toss it in your tool kit and get to work.

For the price, this is one of the best 7-1/4 circular saws you can purchase. I looked at several models from other manufacturers before deciding on this craftsman. I have found the laser beam to be very accurate (you can turn it on or off before the cut to either double check the proposed cut line or to use it for final cutting). At a hefty 14 amps, you can plow through about anything you're confronted with. The scales are clearly marked on the plate and for the adjustment levers. They are quite easy to use because of their placement and they are generous in size. The user friendly handles makes the saw itself very easy to hold and operate. I have only one concern when cutting a 4x8 sheet of plywood. The sturdy aluminum plate is about 1/8 thick, and if care is not exercised when using an 8-foot guide, the thin plate can easily slip under the guide about mid-point and throw off the cut. Although not a critical issue, the case is surprisingly well built and securely holds the saw, laser glasses, wrench and edge guide. All in all, it is my opinion that this Craftsman is one excellent circular saw.

7 1/4 Circular saw
I buy all of my tools with the crafstman logo and I am usually satisfied, but this tools has made me change my mind about Craftsman. I have had used this saw twice and foud out that the Laser,Blade and Guide are not in line with each other. This tool has plenty of power and works good as long as you don't won't to cut straight. I have tried to exchange it at my nearest sears store refuses to satisfy me. I my have just gotten one in a hundred but but sears is not standing behind there product.

I got a lemon

I received this saw as a Christmas present in 2012 to replace another Craftsman that I had for over 20 years. I had not used it much since I received it. Today (April 11, 2014) I tried to use it to cut some aluminum tubing and it stopped working. The light and laser are on so it is getting power but the motor is dead. I have probably only made 25 cuts with this saw total and it was not in a bind. I have many Craftsman tools but will look elsewhere now. Their quality has gone way down hill and Sears is struggling.

get it on sale if you can

just been waiting FOREVER for a good deal, this came up and I didn't hesitate. It's got a little work light and a laser, makes cutting straight lines fool-proof. However, I was a bit taken aback by the weight of this thing, that's the only complaint, otherwise would be 5 stars.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman circular saw

This was a Christmas gift and I just finished using this saw for a large project. Saw worked very well except the laser trac light broke midway through the project. I will be returning it for a new one. Saw worked very well otherwise.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Laser doesn't work

I have had a problem with the laser ever since I bought this circular saw, but I thought that I might be doing something wrong. Now I see that someone else has the same problem, so I think that the problem is with the saw, not with me. The problem is simply that the laser beam cannot be adjusted so that it tracks with the blade cut. The closest I can get is when I use the "0" setting. When I do that, the laser beam is at least 1/4" from the cut. Some people say that the notches are good enough, but I feel that the laser was put there for a reason. and I want to make use of it.

Bought this as a gift for a family member who likes to work with wood. He likes the tool and the laser track. It helps make the cuts straighter and smoother. Dependable and works well.

Husband was very Happy!

My husband wanted a saw for his birthday and he loved this one. It's the right size to do all the jobs he needs to accomplish. Starting with a platform for our washer and dryer.
