A dual-activation cartridge enables two incidents before a replacement cartridge is needed.

SKILSAW SPT70WT-22MT. PROSPECT, Ill.,

Oct. 21, 2015— Increased power and durability are key features that pros continue to demand from every tool on the jobsite. With this in mind, SKILSAW introduces the first-ever 10 in. Worm Drive table saw. Known for its deep heritage in engineering Worm Drive handheld saws, the new SKILSAW SPT70WT-22 offers great rip cutting performance and reliability while maintaining a portable size.

Built with Worm Drive gearing for maximum torque and power, the SPT70WT-22 features a best-in-class Dual Field motor to increase cutting speed and keep the motor cool, extending the overall motor life. Large cuts can be managed more easily with the saw’s ability to rip full sheets of plywood in half with more than 24 in. of cutting capacity. And with a cut depth of 3-1/2 in., cutting 4x material is quicker than ever.

“We’ve worked closely with carpenters, framers, general contractors and custom builders to ensure the Worm Drive Table Saw is engineered to help them work more efficiently,” said Nancy Struijk, Group Product Manager. “With a cut capacity large enough to rip full sheets of plywood and the performance benefits of Worm Drive gearing, this saw will tackle wood cutting jobs with ease. And with SKILSAW’s great heritage of pioneering the Worm Drive Technology in circular saws, we’re proud to offer the first-ever portable table saw with the same innovative technology.”

The SPT70WT-22’s all-metal roll cage design and a die cast aluminum table top add to the saw’s durability while staying lightweight, making for quick and easy setup and transportation. The SPT70WT-22 includes the Smart Guard System, providing a physical barrier between the user and the saw blade, and an anti-kickback device.

Included with the SKILSAW SPT70WT-22 10 in. Worm Drive Table Saw is a 10 in. Diablo® carbide blade, a miter gauge & self-aligning fence blade, an insert plate, push stick and one blade wrench. Available in March 2016, the saw can be found at home improvement stores nationwide with a suggested retail price of $379.00 (USD). More information will be available on www.skilsaw.com in the future.

SKILSAW Introduces Improved Line of Worm Drive SKILSAWs

A New Generation

SKILSAW Introduces Improved Line of Worm Drive SKILSAWs

SKIL MAG77LT Tools of the TradiesMT. PROSPECT, ILL. – For generations, the name SKILSAW has been synonymous with quality and durability. With the recent introduction of a new family of worm drives, SKILSAW continues to build its hard-earned reputation as the “go-to” saw on jobsites.

The new worm drive family includes three saws: the SKILSAW SHD77-02, the SKILSAW SHD77M-02 and the SKILSAW MAG77LT. Each is designed to achieve different cutting applications.

“Developing saws specific to the various cutting applications and trades allows contractors to cut more efficiently,” said Nancy Struijk, product manager, circular saws. “This in turn allows them to make the most out of their day on the job.”

The main feature of the new SKILSAWs is their reduced weight. Each saw is lighter than its predecessor, which was a big improvement noted by SKILSAW user groups. The new saws also feature a multi-function wrench that stores on the saw foot for convenience, a Cut-Ready Depth of Cut SystemTM for quick and easy adjustment and a 24-tooth carbide blade.

“We believe these improvements will have an immediate impact on the jobsite,” Struijk said.

The New Line

Perfect for concrete forming and masons, the 7-1/4 in. Aluminum Worm Drive SKILSAW is one of the most versatile saws on the market, making it the rugged workhorse of the jobsite. The new SHD77-02 Aluminum Worm Drive Saw continues to provide power and performance, and is now a pound lighter at 14.1 lbs. Specific features include:

  • 51° bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45°
  • 15 Amp, 5300 RPM
  • 1 lb. lighter than SHD77*

The SHD77M-02 is a 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Worm Drive SKILSAW that is ideal for general contractors and builders who need power to get through demanding cuts. The saw weighs-in at 12.5 lbs. which means less stress on your arms and back when making rough cuts. The SHD77M-02 features:

  • 53° bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45°
  • 15 amp, 5300 RPM
  • 3 lbs. lighter than SHD77*

Weighing four pounds lighter than the standard worm drive saw*, the MAG77LT offers the durability of a SKILSAW but is significantly lighter, making it ideal for framers and remodelers. This worm drive saw is known for its speed, which can make or break any job. At 11.6 lbs, the lighter magnesium construction of the MAG77LT reduces fatigue for less wear and tear on the user. This 7-1/4 in. Magnesium Worm Drive SKILSAW features:

  • 53° bevel with Zero Adjust and positive stop at 45°
  • 15 Amp 5300 RPM
  • Anti-Snag Lower Guard

What Are You Made Of? Challenge

The introduction of the new line of saws kicks-off the “What Are You Made Of? Challenge” taking place April through August 2014 throughout the West Coast and Southwest United States. At more than 40 events, tradespeople will be challenged to hold a MAG77LT at arm’s length. Those who meet the challenge will be entered into a sweepstakes to win a new 2014 RAM pick-up truck. In addition, all participants who qualify will receive a $5 Buffalo Wild Wings® gift card.

“This is a great way for tradesmen to experience the difference a saw that’s pounds lighter can make in their work every day,” said Craig Hanba, marketing manager, SKILSAW.

Visit www.skilsaw.com/events for the “What Are You Made Of? Challenge” event details and event calendar.

All three SKILSAWs will be available online and in select retail and distributor locations nationwide beginning March 2014. The SHD77-02 will be available for a suggested retail price of $169.00 (USD), and the SHD77M-02 and MAG77LT will be available for a suggested retail price of $199.00 (USD).

Bosch CSW41 7-1/4-Inch Worm Drive Circular Saw

January 20, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Carpentry, Circular Saws, Demo, Manufacturing, New, Recycling 

Bosch CSW41 (pre-production model reviewed)

Power: 15 amps. The motor is smooth and powerful. The torque jump of the old saw is virtually gone, power delivery feels smoother, and the rpm has been increased to 5400 from 4600. Basically, it will cut any type of wood you put in front of it, and cut it like it’s not even there.

Ergonomics: You’re not imaging any thing if you think that the saw has gotten shorter – it has. The motor housing and the gear box have been redesigned, removing weight from both areas. This saw handles much like the last version, just lighter, smoother, and more compact.

Weight: 13 Lbs. 1.2 ozs. (U.S. Postal scale in Pasadena, CA). When I first picked this saw up, it felt really light. However, the saw feels even lighter with use. The rafter hook is now integrated into the motor housing, reducing space and weight.

Blade wrench: It now rides on the saw, and has an end for adjusting the miter nut and depth nut. Also included on the tip of the same end is a heat-treated screwdriver. It can be used to replace the motor brushes or remove the diamond knockout on blades. I especially like how it has two-clicks before the blade wrench comes out. This allows the tool wrench to come out with ease, without the inadvertent release.

Blade: The saw comes standard with a thin-kerf, 24-tooth carbide blade. It is very sharp.

Miter Angle: 53 degrees. It goes from 0 to 45, then from 45 to 53 when the red tab is used.

Depth Adjustment: Instead of adjusting for the thickness of the material to be cut, the depth adjustment slide now comes with markings of common cuts. If you need to cut a 3/4″ plywood sheet, you set it 3/4″ Ply, and it adjusts the saw to the correct depth (about a carbide tooth deeper than the required depth).

If you do any decent amount of cutting, you owe it to yourself to try the Bosch CSW41. This saw will increase your productivity and safety.
