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.
