Too bad it's made in China . I don't need one but if it said USA , I would easily drop some coin for that saw.

We use the milwaukee 10" and i love it. I'm not a worm drive guy though. I do like the magnesium shoe though. Milwaukee 's is aluminum and can bend easier just from the weight and constantly setting it down the same way

I was thinking it would be nice to not lug that 16" Makita around when I'm only cutting 4x.

You and me both. I've been planning on getting a big foot for a long time, just never got around to it. I even got the saw for it, just never ordered the big foot.

For you guys that have used a saw that size, how's the kickback on that thing?

I've used a few 10"s and 16"s.

Personally I wouldn't care to find out. I think you take care not to pinch the blade with one of those. They keep you on your toes.

I noticed on the Makita 16" it seems they've dumbed down the power I think purposely for saftey. I've always thought that anyway. Personally I've been using that saw for many years and I've never had a kick back. The RPM's seem slow on it. Don't tell anyone but I even pin the guard back. Sure is nice to be unregulated by OSHA.

I've pinned the guard back on one of those to, the guard kept getting in the way I actually felt safer with it pinned back.

I drilled a hole through mine and put a bolt in it.

Re: The New Skilsaw 10-1/4" Sawsqatch


I've got one coming in December for review. Stay tuned, it'll show up on the blog at Tools and also in my photo stream.

I'll take some video too. I'm looking forward to testing it since the gearing is designed for the larger blade.

We have a Big Foot on the Bosch motor that is 8 years old and is going strong and we have an adapter kit on an old Skil that we've had since 2002 and its going strong too.

Those 10" saws are great saws.
