Most circular saws sport a 7 ¼” blade which has a cutting depth of up to just over 2 ½” at 90 degrees and usually less when cutting bezels. The smaller 6 ½” blade cuts to a max depth of 2 1/8″. This means that the two most common blades are not large enough to go through a 4×4 in a single pass.
Can you put a 12 inch blade on a 10 inch table saw?
