Great jobsite saw; just wanted to drop a word about quarantine diy.

Some of you, like me, can't get to your shop and it seems like a good time to get some things done at home. And some of you are probably not as experienced with a table-saw and are looking to step up the range of your wood-working capabilities.

Just a gentle reminder that safety is imperative with any table saw, and that goes for all the time. But right now, in many places, hospitals are over-capacity with patients fighting for their lives. Even if you can get treatment for a minor injury, going to a hospital or clinic puts you and your family or roommates at greater risk.

Please consider other safety factors when making a purchase with 'quarantine diy' in mind.
-Are you adequately experienced or prepared to read and study the manual on a machine like this front to back until you comprehend and have solid grounding in table saw operation?
-Do you have adequate space to safely work, with proper clearance, ventilation, and ppe?
-What are your contingency procedures in the case of a minor (or major) injury?
-Does the acquisition of materials represent a significant risk factor for you or others?
-Are there other tools that might be a better fit (and a lower risk factor) for your skills, your home space, and the projects at hand?

For example, I have a few hand saws that I've been using all week at home for project builds, getting a lot of practice with two Japanese Dozuki and Ryoba saws. They're insanely sharp, but the risk of a major injury is slim to none with these, and they don't kick dust everywhere in our small apartment.

I've also realized that my drive to complete things can wait sometimes to make time for my family who are also grieving or scared at times.

Anyways, for anyone pulling that trigger, there are lots of good safety guides out there. Here's just one. Even for the long-time professionals, it's good to refresh now and then, and take a minute to mentally prepare and practice awareness before firing up the tools:

Bought a Skilsaw at Lowe's yesterday. Got it home and opened the box. Top of the saw was all scratched up like it had been used before. Pulled out the blade, and it said "KILSAW" on it because the S was worn off the edge from being used. Returned it. This isn't a knock on SKILSAW, as I'm sure the product was fine, but rather Lowe's who repackaged something they knew was used and tried to pass it off as new. They were out of the SKILSAW after that, so I ended up getting a Craftsman table saw.

Lowes is notorious for putting customer returns back on the shelves.

I was suspicious when I left with it because the item was banded and tape was ripped, but I took it home anyway. First time I've gotten a used item from Lowe's. Seems like Lowe's has been going downhill lately or maybe it's just locally. I find myself shopping there less all the time.

While Lowes bears some responsibility for not inspecting the return, I'd be more pissed at the person who got a "free" rental of a costly tool at Lowes expense.

Just didn't like that it wasted my time having to run back. I ordered it for pick-up to save time to begin with. Then had to do the return and find a different saw. Oh well, just life I suppose. Smilie

OP, I suggest changing your title to "Skilsaw" not "Skil". They're two distinct brands with very different price-points. Until recently, Skil was selling its own entry-level table saw, that went for about half the price of this one.

From my experience, the employee in charge of the tool section uses their own discretion on what they repack. Now, I'm don't know if corporate has guidelines on those decisions. In one of the my stores, that employee just puts it at a great discount, as it is no longer a "new" product but "used."

If you thought it was still in good used condition, I would've asked them for like 50% off discount and use your saving to buy a Diablo blade. Obviously, ymmv.

SKIL and SKILSAW are one of the same. SKILSAW is just their subsidiary for construction-grade tools.

I thought it was standard practice, but if I want to buy something, there is only the quantity left that I want to purchase, and one/some of that quantity looks like the tape has been pulled/cut/retaped/cardboard torn/whatever, I go up to an employee or cashier and ask if they're ok if I open it. Then pull out a knife and open it up. Always better to be sure the item is as-expected when you are there in person. I remember returning a new wifi router to Staples a couple years back and they opened the box, saying that some people had been returning a box of rocks or a small brick, so it feels like the router is in there but they don't know unless they open it up.

On the table saw safety front, definitely be careful. Tons of ways things could go wrong and you could get injured. I normally drink some beers when I'm working with my tools in the garage, but the table saw is the no-beers tool for me.
