It's a powerful saw.
This is a pretty powerful saw. It is advertised that it has an electric brake, but it still runs on for a few seconds, but not as long as other saws. The bolt which locks the blade in place gives you the option of either using their hex head allen style key or a box wrench. I have an offset type of wrench from an old saw which seems to fit perfectly, and prefer to use that over their key since it gives me a better grip to make the bolt tight. It comes with an end guide rip fence, but no carry case or LEDs to illuminate the work area or to be used as a guide. It came with a Craftsman 3D sanding tool as a bonus for ordering it online.

Wont cut True and plastic guard handle is garbage!
I had the exact same problem as another reviewer. "bought this saw back in April for a deck project. After cutting the mostly 2 X 10's with no problem, I moved onto 6 X 6 posts, this is where I discovered a design flaw. The blade and the saw deck aren't true, off by about 3 degrees. This is not noticed on shallow cuts, but on deeper cuts that utilize the full cutting depth this is seen. " Now i didnt return it to see if another one had the issue, BUT it hits the bottom of the motor and you cannot get to ZERO.. it sits around 1-2 degrees which causes problems, right??? HELLO SEARS! you ever test out your stuff??? so the other guy that left a review had 2 of them that did that, and I have a saw that also does it.. so out of 2 people, and 3 saws and all 3 do it? pretty sure that they are all like that! Then the stupid plastic safety guard handle broke off.. I set it down the FIRST TIME and it broke off.. give me a break right? so i called up sears corporate and talked to the folks there.. tehy said they cant do anythign about it and the replacement part is also plastic. So a $125.00 saw is rendered useless because of a $0.05 part? forget that. I made my own out of 1/8" steel x 1" wide and bent it to where i could use the saw... Sears, you can make the stuff out of magnesium but you cant get it to ZERO and you put on plastic parts on the magnesium? come on... I will buy a RIDGID once this thing blows up or when I throw it out of the back of my truck into the ditch. Idiotic mechanical engineers need to be relieved of duty!

Great Saw

Used this saw for some framing work and a deck project so far. Found a pro review on youtube.com that was right-on prior to purchase. Very powerful saw, cuts cleanly and true w/o binding. Would prefer a metal blade guard handle but that's minor. Otherwise, contractor quality at a great price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Did the job

I use these saws to cut masonry with diamond blades. This particular job was concrete and it cut thru like butter without any real bogging down. This is my first Craftsman worm drive (Hypoid). Very impressed so far.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

One Fine Saw

I've been using this type of saw for more than thirty years. We used to simply call this a "worm drive" saw; Craftsman labels it "hypoid". The fact is, the gearing (the axis of the electric motor is at a right angle to the axis of the blade) utilized in this type of saw reduces the vibration; this feature enables excellent control and allows for exceptionally precise cutting. The saw provides good control for depth of cut and angle of cut, and the ergonomics of the saw allow excellent visibility of the cutting edge. This type of saw is heavier than a typical circular saw; but it functions more efficiently. This is the second Craftsman Professional Hypoid Saw I've purchased in three years (a result of needing this type of saw in different locations; plus, I've owned a third Craftsman worm drive for a decade), and I was delighted to find this exceptional tool for a very reasonable price. Based on my experience, I can highly recommend this saw to an amateur or a professional user.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Happy sawing fool...

I had been looking at replacing my old Skil saw that was a "gift" from my late grandfather. I found this saw at a great price with an online deal. I fired it up a week ago and couldn't be happier. It cut with ease through the redwood I was working with. It has plenty of power to cut through just about any wood type you can come across. You can also change out the blade to cut items like masonry. I have been a fan of Frued blades for a while and was really glad this saw came with one already. The best part of this saw, coming from a sidwinder type saw..........is the blade on the left! I can finally cut in a straight line and see what I am doing. I would recommend this saw to anyone looking to upgrade their circular, for a few more bucks you get a higher quality saw that in many ways is easier to use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 7-1/4 Hypoid circular saw, !! POWERFUL!!

I've been needing another saw for sometime and with a deck building project in the works it was time to upgrade. I have always wanted a gear type saw with the blade on the left side,but they were always more than I wanted to pay for one. Everyone i looked at was at or over $300.00. I was looking to see what was on sale at Sears and found this one. It was on sale plus I had a coupon for an additional discount so it was a no brainer. I ordered on line and had it shipped to the local store, got an email informing me it was ready to pickup. I walked out of the store with a very good saw just over $100.00, Wow! It even came with a carbide blade. I have used it with joy. This thing is way better than i imagined, its just what i was wanting. The power of the saw is awesome, it rips through boards with ease. It's light and easy to handle, the adjustments for angles have big levers and you can change depth marks quick and easy with the pre-graduated marks on the depth gauge. No more needing a tape measure to get your depth. I highly recomend this saw, even if your a full-time builder this saw I think would stand up to everyday use. I should of bought two at this price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Its been pretty good for me

Been using this saw for a little over a year and a half. Like any tool its not perfect but overall I would recomend it. Used a Makita hypiod for several years and like the Craftsman better. Its lighter than the Makita and thats what sold me on it. The deck on my saw is solid and the blade brake works good enough (that wasn't really a selling point though). The bevel lever on mine is also fine and has remained in tact even after the saw taking its share of falls. The cord is sturdy enough and the blade is just as easy to change out as any other saw. I can't say much about the fence it comes with because I have yet to use it. My only real gripe would be the little plastic thumb lever on the blade guard. It broke during shipping I guess. Sears sent me a new one no prob and I stuck it on there. It broke again a couple of days later in the middle of cutting with my thumb on it, the blade guard flipped back, and I lost a little flesh. I know I shouldn't be holding the guard up when cutting but hey, this is a review for the saw and not a list of my bad habbits. My saw has since been fitted with a custom built thumb lever thats much stronger and I have been really pleased everything else. If the price if a hypoid seems scary, then you probably don't need one. Just go with a $40 skill saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
