We know some things to be true

What’s True

There’s no shortcut to character & what matters most is the hardest to earn.

What’s True

Reputation means something. It takes the longest to build & there’s no blueprint.

What’s True

The most rewarding work is often the toughest to tackle.

What’s True

Legends aren’t made.
They're built.

That’s always been true for those of us cut from a different cloth.

And that will never change.

 
 

True to the trade since 1924

That’s when we created the world’s first portable circular saw, complete with worm drive gearing and die-cast aluminum housing. You might say we invented cutting for the trade. Literally.

  • Worm Drive

    We literally invented the world's first electric hand saw—and the perfect gearing to drive it.

  • 15 Amp Dual-Field Motor

    It’s the best motor ever made for cutting, and you’ll only find it on a Skilsaw.

  • Varied Torque Clutch

    A handy little innovation that reduces circular saw kickback and saw overload.

  • Anti-Snag Lower Guard

    Snags in small cut offs was an issue, so we found a way to eliminate them.

  • Onboard Wrench

    Our multi-function wrench stores right in foot—and really comes in handy.

  • Cut-Ready Depth-of-Cut System

    Perfect for making quick and accurate depth adjustments on the fly.
