So many things about this saw are bad. The laser guide points WAY off to one side - it's worse then useless. The depth adjuster seizes, making fine adjustment very difficult, and the quick release mechanism on the depth guide on mine stopped working fairly quickly, so now I always have to have a spanner on hand to adjust the depth. The guide on the angle adjuster is off. So you don't get a square cut when it says it's square. The blade is at an angle to the sole plate, so if you use a straight edge you get an innaccurate cut with a kerf a lot wider than the blade. The sole plate flexes. The blade moves sideways in relation to the sole plate when you adjust it up and down. The supplied blade was poor, and the saw takes blades of a size difficult to find. So replacing the poor supplied blade is a pain.
Don't buy this saw.
Worked fine for 2 days

The saw itself is really nice, well built etc. I am usually a fan of the low cost Mac Allister tool set, however, I think this saw was a dud or the brand are starting to lower quality.
When I first started using it, it cut off for a few seconds, I thought nothing if it and continued to cut timber. Working fine for various types of cuts on a decking project and then boom, it stopped starting the saw altogether. The laser light still comes on, but the saw wont start anymore. surley a 2 day old saw shouldnt have issues. Hoping to get a replacement and try again. I'll give it a second try since Mac Allister tools have been great in the past for me.

I would not usually buy cheap tools, but I needed a circular saw for a job, and probably won't use again for a couple of years. The reviews seemed enthusiastic, and I have to say, I really like the feel and balance of the saw. It is very comfortable to hold. However, once the blade was mounted, I noticed an unexpectedly large amount of play in the bearings. Not a great sign. The foot plate is insubstantial, and is not square when set to the 0 degree point. The cut is way too ragged, and after 4 cuts the depth securing mechanism gave out. I will be returning the
saw tomorrow, and spending what I should have spent in the first place
