I want to build one out of the wormdrive- skilsaw, 15 amp. blades gotta have the diamond arbor. Anyone know of a more powerful rear handled wormdrive? Does anyone use an oversize circular saw ever? what kind? what for? how often? comments on ways to improve it?

production framers will use those too, solid stock and glue lam headers of the six by variety get chopped down quick- i hear the kick at startup will about take your arm off. i very rarely feel the need to cut something that thick, and when i do i'll just make a second pass and save myself seven hundred dollars worth of saw and whatever those blades cost. i would like a ten , maybe even 12 incher though- four by headers, tgi's with 3 and a half inch nailing flanges, etc. i'm sure i'll find plenty uses whenever i get one. i know makita, skilsaw, and milwaukee all make a ten incher, but i've got reasons against them all, mostly cost related.
