Porter Cable 146 Circular Saw

Hi, I'm new, but I want some info on this saw. I don't have the manual to the saw. It's a 6 1/2 in and is my favorite saw. Very quiet. Just want some info about the year it was mad and such and also some opinions on it. Thanks

Re: Porter Cable 146 Circular Saw

Here in west michigan , most all the home builders used that saw ,back in the mid 70's. Most of the saws have died of old age ,,,the few carpenters that are still using them ,don't want anything to do with a "modern"saw. They are also constantly turning down offers from other carpenters that want to buy the old porter cable saws.

Re: Porter Cable 146 Circular Saw

It predates zip codes, so that would put it in the early '60's.

Re: Porter Cable 146 Circular Saw

I've never heard of a 6.5" saw, but Porter Cable made / makes great tools. Nice acquisition!

I found a 6.5" Skill Saw in the dump, back in the early 1970s. It was old then, so maybe from the same time frame. To this day, it is my Go-To saw. I know it is not the quality of a Porter-Cable, but even the lower priced saws from back in the day, were built well above the standards of todays products. -- John

I assume you're referring to the front screw in handle?
