There are few tools that I use quite as much as a Miter Saw. Like most woodworkers, there are endless uses. As well, the accuracy is hard to duplicate with any other saw. Recently, Skilsaw produced the world’s first worm drive miter saw. Promising more power and unique features that certainly had me intrigued. I have had this saw a few months now and used it for a lot of projects, including my dining table and benches. With thousands of cuts under my belt, I think it is time we take a look at what makes this saw stand out in the Skilsaw Miter Saw Review.
A Little About The Brand
Skilsaw Miter Saw ReviewSkilsaw is well known for a few things. Founded in 1924, Skilsaw has been around for a long time. Their biggest claim to fame was their invention of the first portable circular saw, often known as the “saw that built America”. Additionally, their dual-field worm drive motors are well regarded for their power and consistent performance. Skilsaw has had a few owners over the years, and today they are owned by Chervon. Often times a brand is sold and their core values shift to follow their new owners. Thankfully, Chervon has set their sights on bringing what we all loved in classic Skilsaw tools and pushing it into today’s market. Chervon is the same powerhouse behind brands like EGO and Skil, and without a doubt, we will see some exciting things coming from Skilsaw in the coming years!
Skilsaw Miter Saw ReviewWorm Drive Gearing allows for incredible power for longer life and efficiency, while the Dual-Field motor allows the saw to stay cool and extend performance. Magnesium Motor housing and aluminum table construction allow ultimate durability while keeping the saw lightweight. At 51-pounds it is the lightest in its class.
Skilsaw Miter Saw ReviewSkilsaw priced this tool fairly competitive to similar saws on the market, coming in at $599.00 at Ohio Power Tool. Miter Saws are a shop staple, and like most users, particularly professional users, I don’t mind spending the few extra dollars on a tool that performs. It is hard to find a true comparable for this tool because it has a few unique features, but its right in line with other well made professional Miter Saws. When you consider the overall features this saw has, and the performance, it’s a tool I am glad to own.
Skilsaw Miter Saw ReviewI have mentioned before that I am a Miter Saw Junkie. Of all the tools I use consistently, a Miter Saw is one of the tools that get constant use in my shop. Why? Well, Miter Saws are the king of precise and accurate cuts. Carpenters, General Contractors and of course, Woodworkers rely on them to perform a wide range of functions. I had really high expectations when I talked about this tool in the First Look, and I haven’t been disappointed.
