Re: The Wormdrive Thread


Kinda too bad it's missing the original table. I wonder if the guy still has it? I think it would be worth getting re nickel plated.

Looks to be in good shape and priced low. I'd have snatched it up already, there was a buy it now until a few hours ago, but my tool budget for this month has already been spent....
Damn, I just checked back on this one, it went for $192!! Maybe I shoulda hit the buy it now at $95 while it was still there?

That's a crappy situation. I've been there. Although I do feel your pain, please don't double post. As far as the bag is concerned, I don't believe skil has bags for their saws. You might be able to find an old model plastic case on eBay though.

If they anything like the Bosch blades, good luck with all that.

I know they were somewhat free and everything...

Ah, grind em up.

Nice score.

Isn't that the truth. The USPS is IMO the single BEST branch of the US govt. I toss Harbor Freight and Northern Tools catalogs in the recycle tote at the post office. The freight is more than the tool most times

Re: The Wormdrive Thread


I like Irwins. My favorite framing blade was the Freud tk103 16 tooth. The devil blades have crowded them out. Which is too bad. The 103 would cut dry 2 stock as fast as I could push the saw. I use a lot of Dewalt blades . I haven't tried the new Dewalt blades with the squiggly cuts in them. They are real thin so should slice and dice real well. I've got 2 of them hanging on a nail in the house I'm working in right now. A 24 and a 40 tooth. .
I haven't seen much on this thread on the Dewalt Framing saw. And they quit making them. That's too bad. Hands down my favorite worm/ hypoid saw. Favorite saw all around.
