Question about Bosch SR6R180 180 Grit 6" Disc 6/Pack Red Sandpaper
Do I need to buy a circular saw with a big engine or will a small one will do?
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.
