The saw has a large cutting capacity a reinforced power cord and performs with carbide-tipped blades to ensure the strongest cleanest most precise cuts. This saw is tremendous and exciting and delivers craftsmen a little bit of the impossible in a highly evolved power circular saw. Skil on another hand is perhaps best known for their invention and continual innovation of the circular saw. Their HD77M worm drive Skilsaw is a tremendous example of how Skil does circular saws like no one else. Built with an ultra light-weight magnesium housing (a great deal lighter than most) the saw handles and maneuvers brilliantly. With its powerful 13 amp motor and ultra durable worm drive gear this saw has truly proven itself as a front-runner in the circ saw Olympics with max power speed and agility. Its longevity is rarely contested and its 7-1/4" capacity is perfectly suited for industrial heavy-duty applications.
Like I said earlier it was old cheap and from Home Depot. Okay maybe we were pushing it a bit on the 6x6s but who doesnt push their tools to the limit of what they are supposed to be used for? Especially homeowners who typically dont have the large selection of tools that a contractor would have or dont always have the right tool for the job (the right tool for this job would have been a circular saw with a Prazi beamcutter attachment). After a bit of debate we decided to go with a corded circular saw or a Lithium Ion battery powered circular saw because we often go several weeks or months between projects. When we need to use the circular saw we want to use it now. Lithium Ion batteries have a long shelf life which means they will stay charged even if they sit on the shelf in your garage (in the cold) for several weeks. They are also extremely lightweight. So if we go cordless we will opt for the Lithium Ion battery powered circular saw. Makita makes a nice LiIon circular saw and you can get one with the purchase of their LXT700 18v LiIon combo kit. The LiIon circular saw included in the LXT700 kit has a 6-1/2 inch saw blade though not a 7-1/4 which is what we are looking for.

He doesnt want his circular saw to bog down in the middle of cutting a 2 x10 joist or have the sole plate hang up every time it goes across the edge of another board. He does not want to have the saw blade slipping around the saw arbor. What he wants is clean fast accurate cuts: In short power. A worm drive saw delivers the constant power he needs because there is no slack or play anywhere between the powerful motor and the saw teeth that are doing the cutting. The worm gear cuts down a bit on saw blade RPM but trades this off for torque. It is torque more than speed that powers a saw blade through thick wet wood. A diamond-shaped arbor makes it virtually impossible for the blade with a matching diamond-shaped hole to rotate around the arbor. Keeping the number of saw teeth down to 18-24 teeth on a 7 1/4" saw blade also helps. The only problem with early Skil worm drive saws was the weight with those large motors and all that gearing. The solution was to use magnesium instead steel in the construction of the saw wherever possible. The modern magnesium worm drive saws weigh only about 14 to 15 pounds which is more than a standard circular saw but manageable in the strong hands of a muscular framer. For continuous cutting higher voltage options (18V or 24V) for cordless circular saws are recommended. 18v cordless circular saws will find it much easier cutting through 2x lumber than those with lower voltage. In addition to the voltage look for saws that operate with Lithium Ion batteries. A 6 1/2" blade is also advisable.
