    Technical info on Mobil SHC 636 Oil which is what the owner's manual recommends for the Ridgid worm drive circular saw.

    I would think you would be OK using Skil oil if you make sure to drain out as much oil in the saw as you can first and don't mix the Skil oil with any other oils. It might be a good idea to drain the Skil oil after say 1/2 to 1 hour of use saw and then fill it up again with fresh Skil oil. This will flush out any leftover old oil and also any break-in grit.
