Difference between Skil and Skilsaw

I have noticed some of the saws are branded Skil and some Skilsaw. There i even a different website for each. From what I can see, is that Skilsaw branded tools, including circular saws and now even a worm drive table saw are pretty good quality. However, the Skil branded tools are of somewhat lower quality. Can someone explain to me the difference in the two and/or history of the two?
Asked by: JHJ
SKILSAW Power Tools, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Robert Bosch Tool Corporation in Mount Prospect, Ill., is a leader in cutting technology serving the professional construction market under the SKILSAW brand and consumer do-it-yourself market under the SKIL brand. SKILSAW Power Tools was founded in 1924 with the invention of its flagship tool, the SKILSAW, the world’s first portable circular saw. The invention of this saw also pioneered the use of worm drive gearing, Dual-Field™ motor and die-cast aluminum motor housing. Its successor, the SKILSAW Model 77 became the benchmark of portable circular saws changing the construction and home improvement industry forever.

Saw will not turn on

Saw is completely dead. It's like it isn't even plugged in. Checked outlet and it is working.

13 Amp Corded Electric 7-1/4 in. Circular Saw with 18-Tooth Carbide Blade is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from A real clunker I guess I should not have expected much for the price, but EVEN AT THIS PRICE, the overall build quality of this saw was still cheesy. I'm a construction professional and I own a dozen yellow lightweight saws and I needed this one for a job in another location since we were on a tight budget. First thing I noticed right out of the box was the way that the cheap plastic housing pieces didn't fit. Then that shoe... could they have made it ANY thinner?? The shoe mounting hardware is very light-duty, especially for a saw that weighs as much as this one. The black finish on the shoe and hardware was already showing rust, right out of the box, so I could only imagine what it would look like over time. A rusty, corroded shoe adversely affects the performance of any circular saw. But the real deal breaker was that the shoe was both warped and not aligned with the blade. Yes, I may have just gotten a bad one, but I still returned this saw and bought another yellow lightweight saw locally. We recently threw away an old Skil circular saw. I mean OLD. I bought it new in early 1943. It still ran fine but because it was so heavy and clunky, we used it mainly on fiber cement board and other materials that we now cut with the new DWE575's. But it amazes me how similar these two saws were. They looked like they came off the same exact assembly line, the only difference being that the motor case and handle case are cheap plastic on the new one. Oh, and the build quality on the 73-year-old-saw was much better. I gave it 1 star because it was literally useless to me. If there were an option for zero stars, that would be my rating. The bad shoe was a total deal breaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utter Garbage Got this for Christmas. My first opportunity to use it was this week. Problem is, it was missing the wrench. So I brought out my ratchet set - but the screw turned with the shaft....and would not come off. I still can't put the blade on. What would have taken 5 minutes with my old saw has now turned into a two hour fiasco. What a waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good saw for homeowner I've had this saw for about 3 years now. Used it to build a deck, a fence and various other odd cuts. Still going strong. No extra frills (edge guide, case, etc..) but for this price you can't go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job well Purchased the software projects around the house I have used this product in the past and have always been satisfied with durability and longevity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this saw! My thirty-plus year old Black & Decker saw quit on me in the middle of a deck building project and I needed a replacement fast. This Skil saw looked like the best similar product among the various models that I shopped. I liked this one much better than my old B&D saw. It is lighter, easier to handle and line up for the cut, and it cut through the 2 x 4's like butter! I'm looking forward to more projects with this saw!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power for the price I bought this saw for small projects around the house. I wanted one that had enough power to do the job (cutting boards, fence rails, decking, etc.) but didn't break the bank. This saw certainly has the power for the job and it was relatively inexpensive. It is well-made and seems to be very durable.
