    After receiving my saw I hurriedly opened the box. It was packaged very well and was not hard to open and get everything setup to start cutting. I did notice that I was missing one of the rubber feet (which I am sure Skilsaw will replace), but otherwise I was ready to go. It is heavier than my old abrasive saw but is more mobile and easier to carry because of the handle on top. The D handle is different from my previous trigger handled saw but is like my miter saw so it will not be an issue getting used too. There was plenty of power, nothing I put in front of it bogged it down, which was not the case for my previous saw. I cut a handful of different types of metal from square tubing, electrical conduit, angle iron, metal t-post, and a few other random metal objects. It made smoother and cleaner cuts than I was expecting it to make, which will lead to work getting down quicker and looking better. The vise for holding down the material was very well built and smooth, and making the area smaller and larger was a breeze. I would definitely recommend this saw to a friend, it is priced very well and from what I can tell is a great saw that should last for a longtime .

    Nice review MRenes. I am wondering what the amp difference is between the Makita and the Skil chop saw?

    How well does the Skilsaw contain the Sparks compared to your old one?

    @mrenes thanks for the review, congrats on getting chosen for the saw,
    It’s very early, but just curious what did you think of the abrasive blade, do you think it would last quite long? Obviously depending on the material thicknesses and type.

    Nice job, I couldn’t quite see in the pic and was wondering if the vise is quick release?

    @dirtywhiteboy – I’ll have double check but the makita is either a 12 or 15 amp.

    @dabbs, yes it is a quick release vice.

    I think it’s a 10 to 12 amp saw. Then what is the Skil?

    The Skil is a 15 amp

    @mrenes that’s funny about the rubber foot. The saw they sent me was missing one too.

    No matter how good you think you are you there is always someone that is better, or can teach you something.

    that is weird, maybe there is one machine on the production line that is malfunctioning.

    It sounds like it only gets 3 feet.

    Yeah that is pretty weird. Hopefully they will get that fixed, I messaged Mike about it so he’ll probably relay that to production.
