    Honolulu,, Hi.

    only one I see is the bOSCH cs10 on the list.

    It’s right up top in the first group of tools where the Blaklader pants are.

    I wonder why this is listed in the top and not with the other saws…

    It seems that they like to keep the Bosch-branded products separate.

    And it looks like it is pretty close in specs to the Bosch – although the Bosch has a bigger bevel angle range….hmmm, need to do a comparison.

    edit — I see the bevel range is the same on both saws. I think that they are pretty much the same saw, but the Skilsaw has more metal parts on the housing and a better blade.

    why not save for both, then you can do a comparison video test.

    There is some nice looking saws you guys have, I already have a nice Makita saw but every time I see one of the SKILSAW’s I try and justify to myself why I need to by myself a “spare” saw.

    With all the trim Work I’ve been doing now I rarely use the framing saws. Today was all day with the brushless 18 volt.

    It just takes a little Skil.

    When I need one I reach for the closest one. Some have been around a while.

    Also a recip and a cordless drill. Not much left of the drill’s battery.

    Rained today so there are any outdoor action shots. 🙂

    I found this sight and it gave me the motivation to get my 1930’s Skilsaw Model E running. The cord was shot and the switch was loose. I cleaned up the switch, installed a modern Skilsaw cord with the neutral ground and inspected the brushes. Now it runs again! I also have the original case and blade wrench.

    Nice, that is a sweet saw. I don’t believe I have ever saw a model E before.

    Welcome to BTP .. Ian, That is a neat looking saw, I think one of the oldest shown to date.

    That’s what I was thinking. But way cool that someone has one that is a classic and it is still working.

    I want to hear about the disposition of Kents saw. I remember the thread way back on CT.

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    Yes it’s heavy, but I can still lift it one handed. It is by far the oldest in my worm drive collection. I also have a Skilsaw 825 (just like the first video in this thread. It also has its original box, wrench and an oil soaked manual), a Stanley Safe T Saw (it has two triggers at two different handle locations), a Mall (with the blade on the right side), a Black & Decker Quick Saw (the heaviest) and a Cummins Power Saw (6″ with a vertical motor). I have a few 70’s and 80’s saws as well.

    Here’s a Skilsaw catalog I have from December 1941. I love the theme and there is great detail and info inside as well.
