that circular saw is for left handed right?

Hector Roman Jr. says:

Are there handsaw's for left handed people. It's annoying to have the saw dust all over yourself.

Now I have to subscribe to Zillows to see my favourite and best teacher: Leah! I'm glad I found you again. I was a bit surprised things were a bit quiet on your channel when I checked in after a bit of a spell from learning new skills.

I agree with the basic tools that every home owner should have, except the circular saw. I just find them too scary and opted for a power jigsaw instead. I have bought a circular saw, but I never got the guts to use it. It's still on the shelf happily lazing away. However, my jigsaw gets a huge amount of uses. so far I've never been confronted with the need to overcome my fears and pull out that circular saw to tackle a project that my jigsaw couldn't handle.

Since I first set up my own home, my tool collection has grown quite a bit, after that first initial purchase of a 9V drill ( too under-powered, but it works well as a screw driver, but I have since upgraded to 12v) and its grown still further since watching so many of Leah's videos. There is very little left that I cannot do now. If I'm confronted with something new, I check out Leah's videos first, because she knows her stuff and knows how to teach it to inspire confidence.

Thanks Leah!
