On/Off switch stopped working
In the process of removing the saw\'s handle to get to the on/off switch, I broke the handle. So I also used part #1619X01364. After removing the four screws that secured the handle, I then removed four smaller screws that held in on/off switch in place. Next I carefully removed the four wires connected to the on/off switch and noted their positions. The replacement switch had a slightly different configuration in terms of the location for the wire connections. After viewing the schematic that came with the switch and identifying and tracing the wires, I quickly connected the wires and placed the switch in the proper position. I secured the switch with the four smaller screws, then attached the handle with the four larger screws. Having the schematic took the guess work out of the wiring. My saw is at least 14 years old. I was prepared to replace it, $25.00 out of pocket is better than spending $189.00! This was easy and I don\'t normally mess with wires!

Hello SwissPete,

If you look on the motor housing you will see a set screw on the outside near the the brush holder. This screw holds the 1619X04708 Brush Holder in the housing. You shouldn't have to remove it, just back it off a few turns, then you should be able to remove the Brush Holder. The wire attached to the holder has a flag terminal on it. You can remove this with a pair of needle nose pliers. Once you have it out, reverse the procedure and you should have it.

Question: Brush Holder Replacement Skil 77

thephoneguy

I damaged one of the brush holders while attempting to remove a stuck brush cap. The parts diagram looks like if you remove the set screw, the brush holder should come right out without having to take apart the whole shebang. Is this the case, or do I have to "crack the case"?

Question: Skil HD77 Type 16

I have a 25 year old HD77 that has only an hour or two of use. All of a sudden the blade stops when I try to cut anything even though the motor runs fine. I changed the oil as recommended with no change. What gives?
Tinkerdave
Reply: Skil HD77 Type 16

Tinkerdave

Hi Sparky,
If the out put shaft has stops spinning while the motor runs try removing the bearing end plate and see if armature nut has lost its torque. The nut keeps pressure on the worm gear.The worm gear has no key way and is kept tight by the nut. If the nut is loose the armature shaft will just spin in the gear. I know you've check to make sure that the blade screw is tight so I won't mention that.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Hi,
I own a skil model 77 type 17 that is approx 20 years old but, lightly used and in great condition. I was cutting some stringers for some stairs out of 2x12's and all of the sudden it quit working. It made a sound like it was under water and then quit working.
Its funny right before that I thought to myself "this is a bad ass tool, its never let me down" FYI don't ever say that to yourself about anything otherwise it quits working.
Anyway....I had it plugged it to a long 14ga extension cord, and I think I overheated the switch. Later when I took the handle apart to look at the switch, it looked like the bottom of the switch was cooked a little and the wires that are attached to the armature were melted at the switch, one of them was severed all the way through.
Since I can't take the saw farther apart without alot more effort, I am asking if anyone knows if the armature wires can be replaced or are they molded into the armature ?
Do I have to buy a whole new armature if the wires are messed up ????

Here's what happened...
I ended up ordering a new switch, 8' cord and handle.
I soldered a wire with a terminal on it from the old cord to the wire that was melted put it all back together and she worked !!!
maybe get another 20 years out of it !!!:cool:

Has anyone tried substituting type 17 worm gears in a type 16 skilsaw? I have a model 77 '50th anniversary issue' worm drive and the gears are shot. Apparently the type 16 gears are no longer available, but since these saws didn't change much over time, I'm hoping the newer ones fit. Anyone?

Reply: Skilsaw Model 77, Worm Gears!

Hi Kent,
In answer to your question. The type 16 and type 17 gears are both different sizes and the housings are not the same. You might try some local repair centers to see if they have any of the older gears.

After removing housing that contains the brushes, screw off the plastic cap on the front of the saw with a 1 1/8" socket. Then remove the locking nut from the end of the armature. Then using a 1/2" or 5/8" brass rod, gently drive the armature out of the front bearing.

Question: HD77

My saw quit running and won't restart.
How do you remove the lower blade guard in a Model 77. I assume the retainer ring holds it. Mine seems so tight and it is a bit hard to figure out how to spread the ring to remove it.
Tracy Taylor
Reply: Lower Blade Guard Replacement

Tracy Taylor

The ring comes off by finding the split and lifting it with a thin flat blade and spreading it open in a clockwise direction.
Don't mistake the black ring for the silver part of the blade guard.

I have a 77 super duty (the handle is part of the motor housing) ser #676063. Is the part #78 on the diagram the same dimensions as for this older model? What I need is a seal (retainer) to replace a CR 6570, the # on the seal in my old saw.
Lebert
Question: Extension Spring

Lebert

I just inherited a HD77 Type 15 saw. The extension spring is missing so the lower guard is loose and therefore it is hazardous to operate the saw. My question is how do I hook up the spring?
Mark
Reply: Extension Spring

Mark

Hi Lebert,

One end of the spring is flared the other has a hook on it. Thread the spring through the small hole located near the center of the lower guard. Pull the spring through the hole so that the flared end contacts the lower guard. Now you can attach the hooked end to the connection point on the inside, top, of the upper guard. Whit that the guard should now be functional.

Good luck with your repair!

Question: Oil Leak

Aaron Biesinger

My HD77 has leaked oil. I haven't discovered the source of the leak yet but want to repair it before I use the saw again to prevent additional damage. Any ideas on where and why oil is leaking?
Mark
Reply: Oil Leak

Mark

Hi Aaron,

Two of the more common areas we see leakage on the HD77 saws are the rear seal, item #78 on the parts diagram, or loose screws on the Guard Plate, item #1619X01255 on the parts diagram. After you diagnose and repair the leak, refill the saw with Skil Worm Gear Oil, part #80111. Hold the saw level and then fill the gearbox until the oil comes up to the bottom of the threads on the fill spout.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Oil

lonnie newell

My question is not really a repair question, but I'd like to know what type of oil is supposed to be used in these saws? and would it hurt the saw if I but lithium grease in it instead of oil?
Mark
Reply: Oil

Mark

Hi Lonnie,

Skil has a gearbox oil that is specifically for the worm drive saw. It is part #80111 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

You do not want to use lithium grease in the gearbox. The worm drive saw requires an oil bath for lubrication. Grease will be flung off of the gears and will not lubricate them.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Augusto
Question: Brushes Spark

Augusto

Hello. Can you tell me why the brushes spark is to high?
Mark
Reply: Brushes Spark

Mark

Hi Augusto,

Excessive sparking inside the rear vent holes is caused by an armature that has gone bad. The armature has shorted out and is now arching. The armature shorted out due to excessive load, usually caused by the type of work that was being done or by an extension cord that was too long and its wire gauge too small. The armature will need to be replaced. Many times when an armature is damaged the field will be damaged as well. You will want to have the field tested to see if it was damaged.

Unfortunately the armature and field have been discontinued for this version of the hd77 saw. You will likely need to replace the saw.

Good luck!

Question: Sparking Skilsaw HD77 Saw

dhstannard

Hi,

My neighbor gave me a gift of a relatively new Skilsaw HD77 worm drive saw. That he said doesn't work.

In reality it does 'work' except that it produces a lot of sparks coming from the armature end. I checked the 2 brushes and they seem to have a significant amount of material left.

Before I take the saw apart, I thought that I should check this group's wisdom on most likely causes so that I spend my time and money wisely.

Thanks

hello! if the carbon brushes are good check the commutator bars for burns, distorted, loose bars also check between each bar gap make shure there is nothing in between causing a short. also check the armature for burn marks or delamination. and last check the field for damage and burn marks of discolering. good luck!

The pivot plate that the bearing is seated in broke on my Skilsaw HD77 saw and I have to pull the bearing off to put on another pivot plate. Can I remove the bearing from the shaft with just a basic puller? If anyone has had to replace bearings or worm gears your input would be much appreciated.

I am looking for some parts on a skilsaw. I can't seem to find the right model number on the parts page. The model number is a 77 not the HD77. serial #1B504000. This is an older saw. What I am wondering is if the the parts are the same? What model number is the closest?
Thanks Paul

I had a saw just like yours, but parts were getting harder to obtain, alot of the parts are no longer available. But I do have the parts list. Ill attach it here.

I have a Skil HD77 circular worm drive. In using the saw I was cutting a redwood
4x4 with a new blade the saw just stopped running. I have done all the simple checks
power cord,oil level,ect no burnt wires or smell. Anyone have ideas what too look for before I tear it apart?
Thanks,
Sammy

Hi Sammy,

With the saw suddenly dieing like that I would suspect either the brushes or the switch. Check the brushes first. If they are almost worn away then they are probably the problem. If the brushes look OK then open the handle and inspect the switch. You can test the continuity of the switch with a multimeter set to test ohms.

I hope this helps!

Hello 916361,

I am pretty sure you have a Prazi Beam saw attachment for the Skil 77 worm drive saws.
Here is a link to their web site.

Question: Worm Gear Compatibility?

KLS

I have a Skilsaw Model 77, type 16 (in fact it's the '50th anniversary issue'. I need to replace the worm gears. Are they available? Can I use the ones listed for the model 17?

Thanks for your help!

Hello KLS,

The gears for the type 16 and type 17 are different and not interchangeable. Unfortunately the manufacture has discontinued the parts for the type 16. So either find a type 16 with good gears or time to purchase a new one.

I've been an REO contractor for more than 28 plus years. I've used the same saw for all that time. No other can or will do all the things I ask it to do. I make my living on this saw's reliability. It has NEVER let me down

This is the best framing saw out there. It's heavy, but the balance is spot on. I have had several of these for over 10 years, and they run like the day they were new. I would never recommend another framing saw, the HD77 is all I need. I really hope Skil never changes anything on this saw.

L have owned and used this saw on construction sites, home repair and general wood cutting projects. It has served me well for 20 or so years and finally I must replace the trigger switch. The only maintenance ever done to it was to drain and replace the gear oil every two years, more often under heavy use. I have used it with a diamond blade to cut cementious siding and ceramic floor tiles. I have absolutely NO COMPLAINTS about my Skilsaw! Rather, I lavish praise on it for its' toughness, its' power and stability in use under harsh conditions and in the poshness of a workshop. It has never let me down.My only regret is that the magnesium model was not available at the time I made my purchase. I still cannot justify replacing it with anything else!Love it, Love it, Love it!11/09/2008
