January 2010 – DEWALT, a leading manufacturer of industrial power tools, launches a new Worm Drive ( DWS535 ) Circular Saw with user-driven innovations and field-proven durability enhancements, resulting in an improved jobsite solution for framers, concrete formers, and other professional circular saw users.

Featuring DEWALT's Toughcord™ cord retention and protection system, a sturdy magnesium shoe and rugged control levers and handles, the new Worm Drive Saw offers users the increased durability they demand on the jobsite. This model includes a true worm drive mechanism for longer life and higher torque. The new Worm Drive Saw also has a class-leading 53-degree bevel capacity with DEWALT’s patented bevel detent system, enabling the user to set common cut angles quickly and accurately.

For even greater productivity, the DWS535 features an extra wide saw hook for modern engineered lumber up to 2 ½” thick and a top-access spindle lock that is easy to actuate, engages immediately, and eliminates oil leaks. Additionally, the Worm Drive Saw has dual ports in the shoe to work with DEWALT’s new DWS5100 Dual Port Rip Guide for accurate rip cuts up to a 14 ½ ” capacity.

“The advanced features and durability enhancements of the DWS535 Worm Drive Circular Saw are a direct result of countless interviews with users and extensive field testing,” said Jon Bigden, Product Manager for DEWALT. “We are confident that the DWS535 represents a major step forward for worm drive circular saws.”

In addition to the DWS535, DEWALT will also be offering a model ( DWS535T ) that features a Twist Lock plug.
