    Power tool lesson #1.

    What is a skill saw?



    The above is a picture of a skill saw. The saw is used for cutting materials ranging from wood to steel, depending on what kind of blade you have on it.

    Usually they are electric, but there are some that are gas powered. They handier than a table saw as the skill saw can be taken to the project.

    Looks kind of scary! Definitely not the first thing I think of when I think of a tool!

    Technically, the tool pictured above is a circular saw.
    Skil is a popular brand of power tools, including the circular saw. Because of Skil's popularity, the saw is commonly called a "Skil Saw", much like some people call different brands of carbonated soda a "Coke".

    Edit - I just re-read my post. I'm taking myself entirely to seriously this morning.

    Actually,
    i think this thread has nothing to do with law enforcement!
    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    One of our members was unsure of what we were talking about in another thread, so I made this thread to help that member out, and any other members who might not know what this tool is.

    I agree with your sumation. The same could be said for Sawzall, Jell-o, Kleenex or Band-aids. I personally prefer a worm drive saw for my circular saw, as opposed to the one pictured. More power and easier to cut long, rip cuts.
    500 fights, that's the number I figured when I was a kid. 500 street fights and you could consider yourself a legitimate tough guy. You need them for experience. To develop leather skin. So I got started. Of course along the way you stop thinking about being tough and all that. It stops being the point. You get past the silliness of it all. But then, after, you realize that's what you are.

    I've already got two circular saws, a table saw, and a shed full of other things. I need a keyhole saw, a radial arm saw, and a reciprocating saw. Get with the lessons!

    What's even funnier is I had to school about 5 engineers at work the other day on power tools. Specifically the quickie saw!

    I hate book smart people!
