The Birth Of A Tool. Part 2. Chisel Making (by John Neeman)

    Circulars are better for plunge cuts IMO. I built my home with a DeWalt battery powered saw and other battery items including a Paslode nailer etc, since I did not have power on site nor feel like spending 25 dollars a day in fuel to run a generator. Would much rather build with the worm saw though as it is a beast.

    I know you didn’t ask me the question but I will answer it as best as I can. I own a worm saw, a circular and a battery circular. All are great for their purpose. Worms are fantastic for 2Xanything (including with the grain cuts) and they have a great line of sight. Circulars, where the handle is farther up the say are good for sawing sheets of wood that are probably already fastened (like decking) since I can kneel and look down on the cut, rather than behind it. Buy a big amperage saw.

    You mention that there is a difference between a homeowners circular saw and a professional skill saw. I didn’t know that there was a difference. How can you tell a pro saw from a homeowner saw?

    What type of oil do you put in your saw and how often do you change it

    I have an older skil saw that my dad made his living with framing for several years before he started building and developing and subbing the framing out.It was an American made(25 or 30 yrs old) 13 amp saw that was built when skil meant quality.It still works flawlessly..Great vid.

    I was going to mention unplugging from the power source, but someone already did. Good video. I realize the unplugging is common sense to many of us who use power tools on a daily basis, but not everyone seems to be born with the same amount of common sense, or at least they don’t seem to recognize it and exercise it on their own sometimes. I wasn’t taking a dig at the video, just pointing out my POV. Keep up the good work.

    I used Skil Mag77 for years but switched to the Bosch wormdrive. You can plug your extension cord directly into the back of the Bosch wormdrive. So if you have a newby working with you and he cuts the cord, you dont have any down time replacing cords.

    I picked up A Skilsaw Mag77 on Ebay, about a year back. Guess where is was made, China : ( I noticed Harborfreight sells a worm drive circular saw, that looks just like the Skilsaw Mag 77. Most likely it’s made in the same factory? Guess I will have to look for an old US made one at a garage sale.

    Worm drive is popular with framers for right handed people because the blade is on the left. When you are cutting dimensional wood you can hold the long length in your left hand and cut with your right hand. You can see the blade and the line you are cutting you are not leaning over to see what you are cutting. For most people a standard 7 1/4 saw is good enough just buy a good one something with a 15amp motor. The the 12 amp are okay the 10amp are crap not worth it.

    I don’t know…Unless you are cutting large pieces of timber, doing a lot of ripping, and/or using a saw for extended periods of time I think a worm drive is excessive for most people. I think a good quality sidewinder is more than adequate for most people. It’s cheaper, easier to handle, less maintenance, bla bla bla…

    Truth is is that most people are only going to use a saw a couple of times than it’s going to sit unused and deteriorate away.

    it will cut it if you put the blade on the right way also…….

    Not all of them are USA made. There is a 13A model that is USA, but the 15A you have to watch. Those are made somewhere else.

    Does Skill still make higher end tools like this? I know you walk into any box store or tool store around here and Skill is usually bottom of the barrel type of tools. Which sucks because Skill was the big name back in the day!
