First Hypoid Heavy Duty Panel Saw Introduced at IWF 2016 in Atlanta Georgia

The worm drive has a disadvantage, it needs regular oil changes. The first one is after only the first 10 hours of use. Two panel saw companies have used the SKIL worm drive saw in their machines. Saw Trax in its 2052, 2064 and 2076 models and Safety Speed Cut in their 6400 and 6800 models. Since the owner’s manual for the SKIL worm drive recommends checking the oil level prior to each use, the user is in a bit of dilemma. The oil level must be checked with the saw horizontal. With the Saw Trax machine, the saw in the insert can be removed in 5 seconds making it easy to check. The Safety Speed Cut models saws have to be unbolted from the machine, which takes more time to change.

The need for the oil changes are because like your car, small metal fragments in the worm drive system flake off the surfaces over time. Without changing the oil and removing these metal flakes, they act as sandpaper and prematurely wear out the motor. Not changing the oil, especially on a vertical panel saw where most users don’t even know it is a regular maintenance item, is a huge step in ease of use and longevity of the saw.

If a cabinet shop, a solid surface shop, or a home center store needed a panel saw for heavy duty use, they have traditionally turned to one that used a worm drive motor. These motors use a geared down drive mechanism turning at a slower RPM than a sidewinder saw but has more torque. So with a high cut load, a hard material to cut like man-made counter tops or hard plastics, the worm drive saw was called upon for the job.
