Can a handheld power tool be so big it shouldn't be handheld?

I don't think anyone would be framing a house with it....but I'd rather move that saw than try and move the countertop on a tablesaw ....lol.

Luckily that saw was available or that is what we would have had to do. That would have been a challenge. We do have a sliding table saw, but there is workbench next to it. The workbench used to be the same height as the table of the saw, but someone slapped a 1" thick piece of melamine on it. So that would have had to be removed first.

Now that I am remembering. We did send that top through the wide belt sander. It didn't have the wings on it yet, but it was still a monster. I think the plan is to deliver it on Monday. That reminds me, I have to go take 2 alleve.

I'm in love. Simply beautiful. I'd need a cigarette after using that saw and I don't smoke.

Well...the first time I saw an 8 1/2" circular saw I was like "What the heck is that used for!?".

I remember when I had a log home built, in order to cut the beams, etc. the construction guys used a beam saw like this. It really wasn't that heavy, considering it's size.
