    i was thinking of the 8 1/4 skil as it has 60degree bevel. are all the blade for these saws the diamond arbor type

    ive never even heard of this diamond arbor now i feel silly please explain?

    my main reason for buying this was i like having the blade on the left so i can follow my quick square for square cuts and also rafter cuts etc etc it also has the direct connect and rafter hook

    lee

    saying that though it does not has a 60 degree bevel

    my mate has the skil mag 77 and that has a diamond arbor.im sure axminster do blades to suit though.i would imagine the bosch also has a diamomd arbor seen as though bosch now own skil .and the skil wormdrive is the original..ps,its the dogs danglies once you get used to it.

    ahh after a lil research i see what you mean by the looks of things the blades have diamond and circular cut outs so they can be used in all types of saws

    your kidding me man surely if its 110 or even 120 i could just remove one end of the plug and put a uk 110 volt plug on it

    or perhaps just get an us extension lead, lop the end off (not the tool end) and put a uk spec 110v plug on the end.

    Not really that confident that us tools run on 50hz check the rating on it before plugging it in

    my festool jigsaw is a us spec and works fine. I know it is us spec because the plug it is a different shape and this is because they just sent us spec 1s here and swapped the plugs to start with

    Also worth making sure your insurance will cover you if you have an accident using a non CE approved tool and that the blade will stop within 10secs. Saw will also run a bit slower on 50hz as US are 60hz and the warantee will be worthless.
