Join us every weekend for everything you should be paying attention to in the world of Power Tools! Sponsored by Ohio Power Tool – watch to the very end to see what’s our GIVEAWAY this week, and how to enter! (more…)
We have been very impressed with the new SKILSAW professional brand and their departure from the cheaper Skil Tools we were seeing in the market. They have really been creative in utilizing the tried and true Wormdrive motor to expand to high quality metal saws, table saws, larger circular saws and a handful of other nice circular saws all paired with high quality Diablo Blades. This new reciprocating aka “BUZZKILL” saw SPT44A ($99) is their first branch away from a circular saw platform but we are guessing this is the first of many under their new leadership.
The US population is made up of by roughly 13% left-handers but blade left saws are not exclusively just for them. Skilsaw was made popular because of the incredibly tough and powerful worm-drive saws which are all predominantly blade left designs. Many righties love the Worm-drive design as well, personally I am a lefty and do prefer the left handed saw configuration. The new Skilsaw Sidewinder Southpaw SPT67M8 ($129) is an all magnesium 15amp direct drive circular saw with all the premium features you’d expect from a high end corded circular saw.
It is that time of year again when we are reminded that it is better to give than receive, so CopTool is giving one lucky person their very own Skil iXO Vivo power screwdriver with wine opening attachments 2354-10 ($48, Amazon).
