A fantastic tool for making straight cuts in wooden or manmade boards a circular saw is simply a must have if you’re doing lots of cutting. It will save you hours in comparison to a hand saw and used properly can give you a neater, straighter cut.
The Makita 5704RK has a blade speed of 4900RPM (that’s nice and fast to you and me, or more than 80 rotations per second for the boffins out there!)
Things you need to know:
- Max. cut at 90° 66mm, at 45° 46mm
- 190mm Carbide Tipped Blade
- Comes complete with guide rule
The 5704RK comes complete with a spring loaded blade guard. This clever safety device covers the blade under the sole plate and flicks open automatically when you start to cut.
