Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ShooterJim Nice Saw
Received as a Xmas gift and have not had an opportunity to use. First impression is that it appears to be well made but do not let the magnesium plate fool you the saw is still weighty.my first saw was a "Skill brand" and since the failure of that saw have had other brands but non seem to hold up so went back and bought the best they make in a traditional circular saw. Hopefully saw will meet and accede expectations. 4 stars on initial unboxing will update after use.

I'm not a beginner wood worker. I've done several projects and have learned many skills. I've bought several saws. I own a table saw, miter saw, jig saw, and circular saw. I have bought a porter cable, hitachi, and this one. I returned the pc because i was not satisfied and I saw the hitachi on sale and bought it. Used it and was impressed. It came with a storage case. I cut the cord off by accident!!! :( so I needed a replacement saw and did some research. I was undecided between this one and the makita ($50 more) I decided to go with this one.
It's powerful, it cuts good feels solid and sturdy in your hand. This saw is great for diyer bc it is aimed at professional carpenter. Great saw!

Saw has good balance and weight. The height adjustment is a good feature, especially when cutting plywood. no angle cuts to date. It would have been perfect if it came with an electronic brake at this price.

Bought This Saw Yesterday and used it right away for small project in the kitchen. very happy with this product. my son is a carpenter and he tried it and said it outperformed the more expensive saws he uses at work. product works like it was supposed to.

I love skil products and this saw lives up to thier name. Normal 15 amp saw are a too heavy but this magnesium saw is the perfect weight and the positive stops at 45 degrees is a geat feature.
