  • another worm drive question......

    for quite some time, i have been looking for a Skil 367, 6 1/2" worm gear saw! finally found one (along with an 8.5") at a great price.

    anyway here is my dilema.....

    as most of you know i am sure, the skil takes blades with a diamond knock out. i have not been able to find a quality blade with the diamond center to fit this saw.

    i bought a dewalt 24t framing combo blade. it does not have a diamond knock out.

    ok so i guess here is my question(s)

    1 does skill still make said blade to fit this saw? i am a huge fan of the older skil steel saw blades!

    2 if not do they (or did they) sell an insert/adapter to accept non diamond knock out blades?

    3) what i have found works is to flip the bushing that goes on the outside of the blade and secure the blade this way. is this recommended? safe?? etc

    thanks

    Try Freud blades. My HD carries them with the knockout.
