Lookin for a small trim saw.
 
Anyone know where i can find (if still available) the small 4.5 er 5" circular saw? I believe it is made by Delta ?,maybe Porter Cable ?. Tool Crib Of The North used to list it but now it seems they are gone and i'm not findin this saw on amazon.

The Delta/Porter Cable merger is messing up a lot of good tools.

The Porter Cable 314 may be what you are looking for-4.5" blade, worm or hypoid gear drive, heavy duty little saw. I think my local dealer has some, but I am not sure if they are discontinued, yet.

They also made, or make, a 6" saw that is a typical looking circular saw.

The 314 was actually sold as a 'trim' saw.

Porter Cable Model # 314 4 1/2" trim saw. You can go to www.deltaportercable.com enter your information in the where to buy section. They will give you a list of dealers in your area and online. Also maxtool.com carries a lot of Porter Cable and if you spend over a certain dollar amount (I think its $200 but i havn't ordered from them in a while) you get free shipping.
