Here’s a brain teaser for y’all.
I have a Skill 77 that’s about…oh, 10 years old or so. I used it daily building homes when I worked as a carpenter. Well, about 6 months ago, half way through building my own house, the saw took a dump. It moans and groans and turns over very slowly. I have since bought a new 77 and just planned on chucking the old saw but with the pool of experts here, I thought I’d give the saw one more chance. I have checked the brushes and they appear alright. I have a new set of brushes handy but didn’t think the condition of the existing brushes warranted replacement. This saw has been through Hellen Back, soaked in rain storms out working, dropped off roofs, etc. It has always pulled through just fine but she’s really sick now.
Any ideas to salvage her?
