Circular saw

I have recently brought a ryobi circular saw and the plate isn't as flat as I would like it and I'm wondering if I can replace it?

If you have the model number you might go to a place like toolpartsdirect and see if it is available.

Made of metal. I've got the details on it. I just dunno whether it can be replaced because its fixed with rivets

If it's still under warranty have Ryobi replace it.

Metal heh? cast or stamped?

You can't bend a cast piece, and I doubt if it is on Ryobi tools, BUT you can bend a stamped base back into a flat condition by using a vise and gently pushing or pulling on the corner that is off. A circ saw base is not a reference standard for flatness regardless, so close is "close enough" for most carpentry.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Sorry about your luck.

I bought a craftsman circular saw a while back. Actually, I bought three of them.

I wanted to make sure that the shoe was square and true to the base. I had to buy and return two of them before I got one that was true and that the blade would STAY square once adjusted.

Kind of a pain but I only live 20 minutes away from my local Sears so it was worth it.

Studies have shown that having a ladder in the home is more dangerous than having a firearm. That's why I own 10 guns... in case some maniac tries to sneak a ladder into my house...
