The circular saw machine is a power-saw using a toothed or abrasive disc or blade to cut different materials using a rotary motion spinning around an arbor. A hole saw and ring saw also use a rotary motion but are different from a circular saw. The rotary nature of the circular saw requires more power to operate but cuts faster because the teeth are in constant motion. The sound of the circular saw is different from the sound of an up-and-down saw and earned it the nickname buzz-saw.

Different saws that use circular saw blades include:

  • Abrasive saw
  • Biscuit joiner
  • Brushcutter
  • Carbide saws
  • Cold saw
  • Concrete saw
  • Flip over saws (the combination of a compound miter and table saw)
  • Miter saw (chop saw, cut-off saw)
  • Multi-tool (powertool)
  • Panel saw
  • Pendulum saw or swing saw
  • Radial arm saw
  • Sally saw
  • Swingblade sawmill
  • Table saw
  • Track saw or plunge saw
