At the moment considering the purchase of a circular saw for light work. I'm looking at a corded model and a cordless model. But the question I have is not about which one is better.
My question today is why the corded one has the blade on the right of my hand and the cordless one has the blade on the left of my hand. See both models below.
Now, I know some manufacturers make left- and right-handed versions of their circular saw. And I'm also aware that 'worm drive circular saws' usually have the blade to the left of my hand. But it seems odd to me. Especially as it seems to apply to most manufacturers too.
Was wondering if somebody has an explanation for this.
