Somewhere in the late 90's, or early 2000's, I bought a used DeWalt 364 circular saw from pawn shop for $35. Fast forward to today, and it needs a new switch. Switch cost about $40, plus sales tax, which means switch costs more than I paid for the saw. In the 70's we used B&D's Super Saw Cats, which morphed into the DeWalt 364. They used this same switch, which at that time cost around twelve bucks. Inflation at work! I would mothball this saw, except I have several different lengths of straight edge guides that are made specifically for this saw. Cost of building new guides would be more than a new switch. Even though I'm nearing the end of life, I try to keep all my tools in working order. After I'm gone, kids will probably sell this saw at yard sale for ten bucks +/-.
