It's important to choose a tool with a motor that is powerful enough to meet your needs. For example, a woodworker should choose a saw with enough power to cut through everything from wet lumber to dense hardwood. If the motor in the saw you select doesn't have enough power, the blade heats up and begins to dull. In addition to creating poor quality cuts, this can become a safety hazard if the blade starts to climb out and push the saw back towards the user. However, evaluating power from the motor ratings can be misleading. Amps indicate only the amount of electricity a motor draws, not the power it sends to the blade. Horsepower accounts for torque (rotational force), but not necessarily under working conditions. So be careful and ask the seller if this particular tool suits the work you want to be done.

Hello i need to know : circular saw need to oiling


the gearcase for this saw is under the blade and you would have to remove the blade and the screws holding the gearcase cover in place. There is a small amount of GREASE in this cavity. If you want to replace the grease use a small amount of white lithium type grease. DO NOT pack this area full or you will cause more damage. Let me know if you need more assistance and if you give me the model and brand I will locate a breakdown for you so that you know what is involved.

Need substitute switch part for sears saw


Sorry , but go buy a new saw. Your not going to find an aftermarket
dealer that carries this switch.

Trying to rig some other switch is not worth the trouble over buying a new one. If the switch is not available, then the saw is old.

No inner washer to keep blade in place


I really wish I could give you a link to somewhere you could find your part but I have checked all the ones I know and it's a pretty big list. I came up empty. I just don't see a way for you to get a replacement for that saw.
However many saws have the same or similar parts. You need to measure the shaft diameter and head to a hardware to check what ever saw you can for a replacement.
Worst case scenario is to take your saw to a small local machine shop. Find the oldest guy in the place and explain your problem. Buy him a cup of coffee and he'll make you one for practically nothing.

Hey it worked on my boss every time.
I hope this helps.
