    This review is from: Bosch CS5 120-Volt 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw (Tools & Home Improvement)
    As a deck builder, I use this saw EVERY day, cutting extremely hard woods like ipe and garrapa. This saw, like all 15amp, circular saws can handle the wood and any kind of cut. I use only top quality Diablo blades, and regularly perform finger rips and compound miters without any issues with the motor bogging down and blade deflection. I also regularly have to rip wet PT wood, and this saw handles it all fine. This is a great saw and a great price, the blade-left design provides excellent line of sight when cutting with your right hand. Very lite weight and powerful, with all cast-metal parts and a tape on the foot. I'd like a detent at the common bevel cuts (22.5 and 45) but it's fine without it. Unfortunately, it requires a lot of strength to get the plate back to square (0 degree bevel)

    UPDATE; I've been using the saw daily now for 2 months and I really like cutting with it. I'm a deck builder and this is a primary tool for me, it's held up well so far.

    UPDATE; 6 months in of daily abuse and the saw has held up pretty nice. I did bend the foot some in a fall but it's pounded flat now and is cutting fine.

    UPDATE; 9 months in and all I can say is that the saw is holding up really well. The plate bevel is still a bit tough to square up and I'd like to find one with an electric brake. Otherwise, great quality saw that has seen tons of use and abuse and stood its ground.

    One real complaint; when you're cutting right-handed, the dust is directed right into your shoes and nailbags. The blade-left saw doesn't have a Bosch dust chute accessory available, and this saw really needs one. When you're cutting a post from right to left, the dust is projected straight up, into your face and eyes. Bosch needs a dust chute for the CS-5. I tried the dust chute for cs-10 and cs20, but it doesn't really attach to the CS-5 without major modification. It's a short-coming.

    Recent experience; the blade-right Milwaukee's have a giant view of the line and blade for righty's. I recommend them.

    This saw replaced another Bosch that was dropped 4 feet and landed on concrete. The base plate was twisted and the blade was a quarter inch out of alignment. Repair parts were no longer available for it. Bought this one as I am left handed and was excited to get a left handed model instead of a right sided one. Based on other reviews, I was concerned about the base plate flatness and blade alignment to the baseplate edge. When I set my new one up I found that the baseplate was flat and the blade alignment was spot on. I docked the review one star for two reasons, first, the bevel cut needed adjustment which was easy to do and second, I was disappointment that the saw did not come with either a case or a bag.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Good Saw, Poor Base Plate, September 9, 2015

    I've been using circular saws for 41 years, and this saw has one of the worst bases I have used. It's up there with those imports. The base is made of aluminum, the corner are rolled up, and it flexes/twists if you put too much pressure on it or lean your wrist when cutting, changing the vertical degree as you cut. Too flimsy.
    The saw has good run out (the blade doesn't wobble), has plenty of power and will cut a perfectly straight line freehand using the blade mark on the base. If you try to use a guide like a square, the front and rear corners of the base cause the saw to deviate from a straight line. If they would have put a descent plate on this saw, it would be a 5 star.
