But another option that many travelers choose is to camp outdoors, surrounded by splendid natural landscapes like lakes, forests, and mountains. If this is your option, we give you recommendations for camping in nature that will help you have a safe and unforgettable vacation.

1. Outdoor Camping Tips

Packs all the necessary elements that you will need.
Camping in the wild means you will not have access to amenities such as hot water or a nearby store to buy food. Be sure to bring with you the essential camping and raw materials needed to cook, as well as a small handheld conservator to preserve fresh food for longer. If in the area where camping is not allowed to light fires you should opt for the option of a portable gas stove.

What to do when an appliance breaks

When one of my appliances no longer works, I check if it is repairable. If, for example, the fault comes from a small defective part, it may be necessary to replace it rather than to buy a new one. We thus avoid unnecessary expenditure … and, at the same time, the production of waste.

To do this, it is best to buy good quality items: they will last longer.

In the case of electrical and electronic equipment, in order to deal with a possible breakdown after the warranty expires, favor appliances that are removable (and therefore easier to repair). Check that the spare parts are easy and inexpensive.

For hardware, choose models that can evolve easily to increase performance (memory expansion, adding processors …), without being forced to change them. As such, avoid products that promote programmed obsolescence .

To take care of its business and to maintain its equipment. This is the best way to prevent breakdowns and keep your business in good condition. Oiling your bike, waxing your shoes regularly, feeding your furniture, watching carefully the instructions for washing clothes … So many small gestures that will prevent objects from deteriorating too quickly!

When the washing machine, vacuum cleaner or toaster … break down, do not hesitate: run the repair warranty. If it is no longer valid, do not hesitate to call a competent professional for a diagnosis, a quote and if necessary a repair. Unfortunately, they too often offer overly costly repairs which are then dissuasive.

If your kitchen appliances break down then make sure that you deal with them appropriately. For example if your garbage disposal has problems then make sure to hire a professional.

Saw Facts

A circular saw is equipped with a circular blade driven by a motor from 1000 to 2500 Watts
Weight: usually between 3.4 and 7 kg.

The power of the motor maintains the blade rotation at a high speed: 3,780 to 5,900 rpm.

On / off controls are triggered.

Cutting capacity

The diameter of the blade varies according to the model. It determines the maximum depth of cut.
Blade diameter (in mm)
Cutting capacity (in mm)

Security features
The upper part of the blade is enclosed by a fixed casing integral with the engine block.

A movable casing covers the lower teeth. It is retracted in the fixed housing as the saw operates.

A divider knife prevents jamming of the blade during operation.

At the end of the cut, a return spring returns the movable casing to its initial position and protects the blade from moving until it stops completely.

A safety switch prevents unintentional running.

Work comfort
The circular saw is held with 2 hands by a large rear handle (which incorporates the trigger) and a palm handle at the front.

An exhaust port for the sawdust , connected to an external suction, makes it possible to clear the cutting line and to preserve the machine by reducing the heating.

Some circular saws are equipped with a laser cutter (such as levels) that guides the cut with optimum precision.

The sole tilts from 0 to 45 ° for the beveled cuts. With parallel guide, sliding and removable.

2 Types of blades

The blade of a circular saw is mounted on the motor shaft by a central hole , or bore. A locking device for the motor shaft facilitates the changes.

The diameter of the bore varies from 16 to 30 mm , depending on the model.

The higher the number of teeth, the finer and more accurate the cut. The blades on our machines have 10 to 24 teeth.
10 teeth : multi-toothed saw blade made of hardened steel for roughing, cutting …

12 to 24 teeth : Flat-toothed blade (tungsten carbide pellets) suitable for most jobs.

48 teeth : for melamine or laminated panels.
The circular blades often have small slots (4 in general) which originate at the base of the teeth. They prevent possible deformation in the event of heating.

The blade cuts upwards: the arrows indicate the direction of mounting. The bore and the number of teeth are always mentioned in addition to the diameter.

3 Uses and power of a circular saw

The choice of the circular saw is made according to the use that it has and the power.

Classes of use

There are three classes of use of a circular saw.
Occasional : Soft wood and derivatives (agglo, plywood, MDF).

Regular : ideal for hardwoods (local or exotic), the pieces of framework.  Click here to see some examples of saws.

Intensive : extensive work on all types of wood.


There are two power ranges for circular saws.
Less than 1,200 W.

1200 W and more.

Special cases
For certain uses, there are particularly suitable saws.

For professional use : circular saws from the “Build & Renovate” range.

For plunging cuts in wood, plastic, metal: double-blade saws are good

For structural joints , the large carpentry: the “2 in 1” saw, with a cutting height of 200 mm. It is equipped with a short chainsaw chain in addition to the circular blade.

Good to know : the circular saw is by definition a powerful machine. Read the recommendations in the instructions carefully.
