SKIL saw is a universal contractor model.
They have light weight plates also.

Trying to finish the shop roof and my Craftsman saw quit. Searched for
comparison studies and found this:
The Craftsman, they noted, is what I have, 1 yr old. I assume, either the
switch quit or the brushes are bad. Can't remove the brushes without lots
of other disassembly. Took the switch apart and parts flew all over....
don't know how to replace them. I hate when a tool quits in the middle of a
job, especially one that is not very old. I'm pissed, having spent an hour+
troubleshooting it, when I could have bought a new one and be back working
within that wasted time. *And, as they noted, this Craftsman is heavy,
making it very uncomfortable.
The Bosch CS20 was Pop. Mechanics top choice. Sears has them on sale for
$99. They are regularly $150. I hope it's as good as they say, I'm going
get one. At that price, I might get two.
