Who Invented the Circular Saw?

A saw is a tool that can be worked by hand, or powered by steam, water or electricity, which uses a hard blade or wire with an abrasive edge to cut through softer materials. The first sawmill circular saw was invented by Tabitha Babbitt of the Harvard Shaker community in 1813, but the concept was also put into use by earlier practical engineers.
