The tool that changed carpentry forever. A versatile, timeless, production monster of a tool. I literally don’t leave home without it, I have used a saw like this nearly every day for 40 years, and while I have in fact tried other saws - they are no match. Skil has enormous experience with circular saws, as they were among the first to introduce them in the 1940s. While the name 'Skil' no longer has the authority of former days, their circular saws are still the industry leader. Use the saw that changed construction forever. Larry Haun did!
