Great saw

  • Summary: The skill 8 1/4 worm drive saw is a great saw for anyone who plans on cutting rafters or anything else that requires constant running. The saw is heavy would not recommend for everyone, but if you are looking for a work horse saw this one can't be beat.

For 3" cuts by experienced carpenters only!!!

  • Summary: First off this advice is not for novice or diy weekend warriors!!!! If you remove the blade guard you can fit an 8 1/2 inch blade in this saw and increase Cut depth. I have done this with this saw for well over a decade. Like I said not for beginners or those on a site with osha present. And modifications do void warranties if they apply.

Best tool for the job

  • Summary: Ive been a CA framer for 13 years. Cant beat an 8-1/4" for cutting 3x sill, sole plate,TJI's, or tricky roofs. When I was younger and my arm could handle it I used an 8-1/4" everyday as my everyday saw. If you cut a lot of beams get a Big Foot or a Makita Beam saw, if your a stacker, joister, or do more high end framing you can't go wrong with one of these.

NOT Made in America as advertised

CalClosets, Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a good worm drive saw made in the USA for our shop. I called Amazon and was assured that it was and ordered it. Then I went on vacation. When i returned the saw had already been used several times and right there on the label - Made In China.... of course! Amazon page for this product says both "Origin: USA" and "Certifications: UL, CSA Assembled In: USA" This is probably going to be a decent saw and I was hard-pressed to even find one that was...

Assembled in China

Gene K, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this saw figuring it would be the last made in the USA Skilsaw I would buy. The specifications on Amazon list the origin as USA and the description states assembled in the USA. Well the package says assembled in China, with the blade from USA, China or Japan. I'll keep the saw but i"m seriously bummed.
