Avoid setting your circular saw down on concrete or masonry! These rough, stony surfaces can scratch the underside of your saw’s “sole plate” (the metal platform that provides a square base for your saw to rest on). These scratches will in turn scuff any lumber you cut! Instead, try to set your saw down on pieces of wood, soft dirt, or even in the circular saw carrying case.
