I am left with a useless tool.

Carvil B. Jones "tj", Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: The stud keep turning when trying to release it.. so I cannot even install the blade. Since it doesn't have anything to lock the stud, I am left with a useless tool.. This is my worst purchase I ever made and will never buy another Skil product!

  • Summary: have used a couple of times and it works excellent. the one thing that all the new saws have is that darn safety switch you have to push in order for trigger to work. Other than that could not expect better for the price.

Satisfactory DIY saw (see blade recommendation) at the right price!

Keith R. Douglas "Hopelessly lost, but making..., Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Working on a home remodel 2000 miles away from my tools, I needed a circular saw. Did not really want to spend $200+ for a heavier duty saw which would come close to my 30 year old Skil back at home. Read reviews for hours, checked other brands (Porter-Cable, Ridgid, DeWalt, etc.) at Home Depot and decided on this saw, though it was not displayed locally for me to hold.

It's ok

Christine, Amazon
27 June 2014
  • Summary: This product is ok. It did the job I needed it to. Perhaps I had unrealistic expectations that it would cut through thicker pieces. I had to flip the wood so it would go through.

Great buy

Dan H, Amazon
25 June 2014
  • Summary: Bought due to cordless circular saw not able to do larger jobs. This really made my job easy. Cuts well and quick. Not 5 stars because nut seemed to keep coming loose that held blade even though I kept tightening back up

A great gift at a great price

D. Dahlke, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I haven't used this personally as I bought it as a gift for my son-in-law. But with the great ratings it already had, well-known user name and history, and a great price I couldn't pass this one up. My son bought a used one at a garage sale and he loves it. Even though its old its still going strong.
