Hi Guys.
The time has come for Eurekazone to offer our own line of Power Tools
designed for the ez rails and not only.

Our R&D for our saws is almost done but without the input of the real users
it may never be completed.

Here is the big question(s).


What do you like to see in our/your saws?

Have it your way before we place our first production run of 5000 pieces.

Please, include any and all features / functions that you like
to see from the ez saws.


Thanks for your trust and support.

Dino,

Off the top of my head:

A blade guard that does not catch on the EAC. It may not be doable, but how about, a two part blade guard, an inside part that that is held up by the rail when the saw is on the rail, and an outside part that covers the blade while the saw is on the rail. Both parts cover the blade when the saw is off the blade.

It should have at least a 1.5" depth of cut when on the rail, with a 7 1/4" blade since they are readily available and not expensive.

Depth of cut should be easily adjustable. It would be nice to have a scale that can be zeroed for the blade being used.

It should be powerful enough to cut hardwood.

Adjustment for bevel cuts should also be easily accomplished and the scale should be accurate with fixed stops at 22 1/2 and 45 degrees.

Dust collection and dust shield should be integral to the saw.

That is all that comes to mind right now.

I would make it an 8 1/4" saw. You can still run a 7 1/4 blade on an 8 1/4 saw, but have an extra 1/2" capacity. It should be light, have a brake, and have adjustable 0 or 90 deg stop. Also on my makita 5008 even with the ez dust port it spews dust out the side of the saw. Think about cutting mdf. A larger shroud covering most of the blade would be better for dust collection similar to the plunge saws. 15 amp motor is a must, don't go less!

Dino, I want a 10" with calibrated height adjustment which is done with dial. It should also have an "outrigger" attachment that slides in rail groove on the off cutting side. (to prevent tipping when bevel cutting)

If you could come up with a motor design, that has four, or an equal number, of equally spaced holes, then the mounting plate on it, could be reversible (right or left blade), or swapable, for your and other euro rails. Then the blade size and guards, could bolt to the motor frame itself.

One issue that I had with that idea, was the handle, but last night, I figured, with the modular design, if one installs the handle first (encapsulates the motor), then the baseplate, that would be locked in (two screws in the bottom of the handle, below the motor, to help secure it.

Hi Guys.
The saw unit is under construction.
After using and testing many circular saws and industrial tools,
the answer is a whole new tool that includes ALL the ideas from ALL the users.
So far, I don't see any bad idea.

Dino posted in the Creek something about the new EZ Saw not being a circular saw. That sure has my curiosity going. About all I can think of as a circular saw alternative is a height and angle adjustable RotoZip type device with beefier bits.

Does anyone else want to speculate while we wait for the new tool to become available? Very Happy

Mark,

I believe that was Dino's way of saying that it would not be like any other circular saw. I'm sure that the saw will fit the general definition of a circular saw, i.e. a hand held power saw that has a circular, rotating blade.

Before the saw comes the base.


All the above ideas and wishes are very easy to execute.
First, we will start with a modular and Universal Smart Base system that
is under extreme testing for few years now.
The base works wonders and can transform ANY saw to work Better than ANY saw in the market today.

Few Benefits that we can offer soon.

1. Depth of Cut : 1 -3/4 with a 7-1/4" saw on the tracks.
2. Dual antichip protection and 2-1/2" depth of cut with edge guides.
3. Same base works for Left and Right bladed saw.
4. Renewable antichip on the right or left side ( AC-3 )
5. Stabilizer for total stability and safety on bevel cuts.
6. Easy installation with no measurement or adjustments.
7. No drilling thru the sawbase.
8. Adjustable track for zero play on all tracks. ( Universal)
9. Wide body for stabilizing the narrow base worm drives and battery saws.
10. Available in any size. ( Custom fit to ANY saw )
11. Made from the best modern materials available ( Delrin )
12. Super strong to protect the saw from dropping.

And few more very unique inventions
that we can offer as soon as we receive few
old and long awaiting patents.


Thanks guys.

Maybe I am not completely informed, but would it be possible to create a circular saw that uses thin-kerf table saw blades? 10 inch blades are readily available and can be pretty inexpensive (although not cheap). Also, they come in a number of specialty tooth types. Also, they can be equipped with stiffeners that help reduce run-out from vibration.


If we are wishing, why not super size it?

I know that craftsman portable contractor saws are not great, but they can be had for less than 200 dollars new. They are direct drive, so they can't be that far off from a circular saw in construction. I would pay 400 dollars for a good 10" saw for use with the EZ system, and the price could be kept down by eliminating features that are not absolutely necessary.

Has anybody asked the question "What features do not need to be in the saw?"

b.

ps If there is a reason why this is not feasible, please let me know.

We have mentioned modular, and that would be one method to be able to use everything from the typical 7 1/4" diablo, to the 10" one (for a tablesaw).

Would this lead to lack of the white antichip, and a different insert, to use dado blades on it?

Ben,

Several of us are currently using the Makita 5104 - a 10 1/4" circular saw. It will use any of the 10" table saw blades that you wish to use.

I'm not aware of any of us trying the stiffners - in fact I think they go on both sides of the blades I doubt that could work without major modifications.
