Skil Circular saw models 574 and 1715

Hello all. For the dreaded work with the portable circular saw on sheets of plywood:

1. For Skil Model 574, what are the compatible blade screw and washer/collar? A compatible ripping fence? The parts for this model are obsolete. I will need a compatible set. (stock image below)




2. For Skil Model 1715 (the original orange), no locking button, how do I lock or stop the movement of axle in order to tighten the blade screw? A compatible ripping fence?

I received both of these saws for free. Reuse, no need to send them to the garbage dump.

I know circular saws are the devil's play thing and should use a dedicated table saw for woodworking. I know, plywood and its evil splinters are wolfs bane for woodworking. It's not the Jedi Way. But, I need to fabricate raised beds for planting vegetables and may use a track for sawing.

What are you seeking?

The saw in the photo already has a blade screw and washer. Amazon has several types of rip guides for circular saws. I just bought two for my worm drives.



Don't berate circular saws. Yes, there are not for fine woodworking BUT they are the first choice for break down large sheets of plywood by one person OR by a shop with limited table saw capacity. Just use a fine tooth blade when possible and cut with the good side down when possible to avoid splintering.


Place a small wood strip against the teeth and base when tightening the blade or removing it.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

The photograph of the Model 574 in my post is a stock photo. My circular saw is missing the blade screw and collar/washer.

Circular saws + fine tooth blade + masking tape + plywood= Texas chainsaw massacre of splinters.

Thank you for the suggestion for tightening the blade; it worked.

For ripping make one of these guide boards for your circular saw:

Which of those blade screw and washer sets is compatible with Skil Model 574? I own Model 77; it is not compatible.
