    Interesting saw for sure. They are also into metal cutting.

    Lets hope the brand keeps it chin up.

    I agree about the brand Skil. They will get a lot of loyalty buys, I hope it works out because it could only be good for us in the end. I’ve never owned a Skil brand tool however I learned a circular saw as “skilsaw” first. Kinda like saying “kleenex” instead of “tissues”.

    The metal cutting saws look pretty nice too.

    We first started cutting CFS studs with a SkilSaw with the SteelPro blade on it.

    Bet you that threw off a bunch of sparks.

    It was more like burning hot steel shrapnel. I love the new metal cutting saws with the shroud to keep all that stuff contained.

    I remember those days, hot sharpnel that burnt holes in your clothes and shoes. All of your work clothes had these little pin holes in them.

    That looks like a great set up. When I was a wee lad I’d make a box and mount my worm drive under it because I was too broke to buy a table saw. I’d screw a 1x down for a fence and I was in there

    What a cool idea. Being broke creates lots of new ways to do something.

    Hope the saw is successful.

    I could see the benefit of the worm drive table saw. Often on a jobsite, power is limited, so anything that will enhance the performance of the table saw would be nice. The added weight, which I have about the worms, will not be a factor in this application.

    It would be nice to have the extra torque for sure.. I picture ripping tapered sleepers.

    The fact it runs off of the 7¼” blade make it cheaper to replace the blade.

    Looks like everyone thinks this new saw will be a big hit.

    thats great, i’ve been looking at the 7 1 /4 blades for my next saw purchase so I can use that when I don’t need the full 12 inch.

    You could just put 7 1/4 blade on your 10″ table saw eh? I’ve been doing it for years and the thin kerf saved me a lot of wood.

    @jzm With a small blade on a 10″ saw you can’t make anymore deep cuts. I find it very inconvenient when I have to rip a 2×4 in half or make any deep cuts.

    Where did you see that? I thought it came with a 10″ Diablo blade. You are not going to rip 3 1/2″ with a 7 1/4″ blade

    That is very interesting. Now I might want to get a portable saw for myself.
