Bosch Adding Left-Blade Circular Saw to Arsenal

Bosch Power Tools has added a new circular saw to its line. The Bosch CS5 left-blade circular saw allows for a better line of site and improves accuracy of cuts for right-handed users. The saw, which has a 15 amp motor, bevel capacity of 58 degrees and an anti-snag lower guard, will offer competition to the Milwaukee 6391-21 and the Porter-Cable 423MAG saw, but at a much lower price point.

Porter Cable 390 Sander Engineered for Performance

Porter Cable's new 390 and 390K Sander thrives through pressure using Porter Cable's new ENDURATECH Technology. This random orbit sander includes a BRUSHLESS MOTOR and a new compact design, which places the user's hand 31% closer to the material when compared to traditional palm sanders (such as the 333 Sander). This means better control for the user!

The ENDURATECH 3.5 Amp brushless motor also features Electronic Load Control which constantly monitors and maintains motor speed, resulting in 42% faster material removal according to Porter Cable engineers.

Because there are also fewer wearing parts (much like the Festool C12 cordless drill), the ENDURATECH motor will provide woodworkers with 5 to 10 times longer life than traditional motors!
