Those old tools were all really heavy. I had a Black and Decker circular saw which was my dad's. It worked fine but couldn't stand the weight so I gave it to my son.

I used sidewinder for years, but I always wanted a Skill 77. As luck would have it, I ended up with 2 of them within the past year. If I set down the Makita sidewinder and grad the Skill worm drive, it's like grabbing the bumper of a pickup and lifting! :lol: :lol: :lol: Different designs from different times.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

My chop saw has a carbide tipped blade, it reached the point of time to replace.

Just to see if it would work I got out my diamond tile saw, it's just a cheesy plastic thing I bought to do one job.

It sharpened the carbide tips perfectly the saw cuts like new again and the teeth have enough left to them for a few more sharpening's before I will need to buy another.

You might want to look in the gearbox if it has one (most do) and replace the old dried out grease.

I have one of those old Craftsman 7" saws; I got it in the late '60s or very early '70s. I haven't used it for decades. The 7" blade always seemed odd to me. If I recall, the common 7-1/4" blades are too big (but, as I said, I haven't looked at it for years).

Hello (rossow) (mn),

I have to look at mine, I may have A 7 1/2" blade on it. It is a carbide tipped one. I did dress it up awhile back, but really needs a new blade now,
