Skilsaw Outlaw – The Worm Drive for Metal

The worm drive, what can you really say about this type of saw?  The worm drive has been out for nearly a century.  It’s tried and true just like the GM 350 small block engine.  It has taken a beating over the years and is considered, not only a tough saw, but one of the most reliable saws on the market.  In fact, Skilsaw just stuck this motor in a table saw and it’s a beast.  Well now Skilsaw has taken it up a level with the introduction of the Skilsaw Outlaw metal saw. The Skilsaw Outlaw is an...

I don’t care where you go or who you speak with, but everyone has heard of Skilsaw.  They either own one or have used one.  It’s one of the oldest circular saw companies around.  In fact, it is the saw that built America, yes they are that old.  In a world where it’s good to be young, it’s opposite in the tool world.  You could say Skilsaw is the grandfather of all circular saws.  The wormdrive has been around the longest and is still used by serious professionals even in todays lightweight cordless era. The wormdrive is the king...

Skilsaw SPT67WM-22 15 Amp 7-1/4″ Sidewinder Magnesium Circular Saw

What do you say when you need a bandage, you say Band-Aid.  What do you say when you need clear tape, you say Scotch Tape.  The same holds true for a circular saw and why is that?  Because Skilsaw has built an incredible, powerful and reliable circular saw year after year.  This is their bread and butter.  After all, they have the saw that built America with the model 77 and who can argue with that track record? Today we are taking a look at their 7-1/4″ Sidewinder circular saw, model SPT 67 WM-22. The sidewinder uses an inline...

Skil 18V Circular Saw Review

 This is a review of the Skil 18V cordless circular saw that came in the combo kit 2895LI-20.  The model number is 5995.  We have to admit from the start this saw was far more impressive than we expected.  Now this saw packs some pretty good stats for a homeowners saw.  The no load RPM is 4200 and this only weighs about 5.12lbs.  When we first saw this tool, we were a little skeptical being a 5-3/8″ blade and using a 1.3A battery pack.  We sort of jumped to conclusions that this wouldn’t cut much and was more of a toy than a power tool, but after using this for a while, we discovered that we were wrong. The top D-handle gives the user a lot of control over cuts.    Along with the light weight of the tool, a user can control this saw with greater accuracy.  So in essence Skil designed a great saw for the homeowner, one who may not use a circular saw that often and needs the control and extra little help.  The one item we wish was a little better was the bevel cutting capability.  But again the saw is a 5-3/8″, so you can only go so far with a good bevel cut. When we tested this saw, we thought we would start off easy.  We cut through some 1/2″ plywood.  We really wanted...

Skil Worm Drive Saw Power Tool Review

Specifications– Skilsaw Worm Drive Amps – 13.0 Volts – 120 RPM (No Load) – 4,300 Cord Length – 8 Ft. Other Features Carrying Case D Handle Anti Kick Back Design Oil Pressure relief bellow   What do you think of when you think of bandages? Band Aid. You don’t ask someone for a tissue, you ask them for Kleenex. Well the Skilsaw is the same way. You don’t ask someone for the circular saw, you ask for the Skilsaw, no matter what brand you are thinking of. The reason is simple, Skil makes one of the best worm drives available. In this review we tested an older model called the Skilsaw Professional. Skil makes a newer model that has a magnesium case. This makes the tool lighter. A worm drive is different than an in-line saw. We have an article that talks about the differences. A worm drive is a true professional circular saw, lots of power. Skil, which is owned by Bosch, has one of the most well know types of work drives on the market called the Skilsaw. The Skilsaw we tested is one incredible saw. Before we tested the saw, we went to a job site where it was going to get a lot of use cutting 1″ sheets of plywood for concrete pouring. On the 3rd floor they were cutting Maple and Oak pillar sides, so...
