Default buying circular saw for comp case modding

i want to buy a circular saw - i have a few comp cases that i want to
mod now and in the future.
THey all seem very expensive. but this one is cheap.

http://diy.abcaz.co.uk/5_429772/powe...erm-18v-cordl=
ess-circ-saw.html

I can get it for =A345 including postage.

I have a jigsaw but i think that messes up the case a bit. I might just
use a hacksaw. But I like the look of this thing.

also, Is there any standard thing to cover ones mouth to protect
oneself from metal filings?

You don't want to piddle about with that, you need one of these:

I won't be getting a circular saw then!

I could buy a SIP 16" VARIABLE - SPEED SCROLL SAW . Or would that be
a case shredder too?

i'm fairly sure that scroll saws need not shred cases up, 'cos I was
told that scroll saws are good for modding cases. The prob is, I don't
know if maybe 16" is too big, and would shred the case.

Judging by the URL that's a totally inappropriate tool (I didn't
follow the link).

I can get it for =A345 including postage.

Have a look at nibblers or aviation snips if you don't want to use a
jigsaw.

also, Is there any standard thing to cover ones mouth to protect
oneself from metal filings?

A neckerchief - it goes well with a wide-brimmed hat.

How about a nibbler .. Just drill a hole on the waste section and
follow the line which you have drawn before .You do need an electric
drill tho'
