Tip of the Week

Aubuchon Hardware Tip: To safely operate a portable circular saw, it's important to start the saw before you touch the blade to the material. Otherwise there is a serious risk of losing control of the saw because of kickback. Check the location of your circular saw's power cord before making the cut. The concern here is equal parts tripping hazard and being sure you don't create an electrical hazard by putting a metal blade in touch with the live current flowing through the power cord.
