Their owners manual doesn't give an exact quantity however they say to unplug the tool first then remove the fill plug and the lower plug and the oil should run out past the first thread. they recommend using their oil 80111 8 oz. tube however any good worm drive lubricant will work, Don't use anything like gear lube because the worm drive lube has an additive for anto foaming. Let me know if you need more assistance

Center bolt spins freely


There was probably a hole in the flange that you discarded that was used to put a pin/ nail/ bolt/ etc in from the body of the saw to hold that flange from turning while you did the nut up. Unless that hole is there you will have no way of holding the shaft to tighten the nut.

How do I replace the spring on the retractable blade guard on a model 77 worm drive skilsaw?


Bearings maybe......I'd also check the armature fan and see if it came loose. Either way it doesn't sound cheap!

I have a Skilsaw wormdrive Mag 77 circular and the case on it says Oil is low what oil is best to use?


they make special "wormdrive" oil that is similar to gear lube but i has an additive for foaming. You should be able to go to any repair shop and buy a small bottle of the wormdrive oil. I would not recommend using anything else or you might damage the gears. Let me know if you need help finding the oil and if so give me your general location in the US and I will try and help you further.

Need to know the type of oil that the skilsaw 7 1/4'' mag 77 use


skil recommends using their lube 80111 for an 8 oz tube or 80112 for a pint. however any good quality worm drive lube will work. Don't use a gear lube because the worm drive has additives for anti foaming and gear wear added. Let me know if you need more help

Skilsaw motor runs blade won't turn


It sounds like you bought a lemon possibly. I am thinking that the gears are bad. What you can do is remove the blade and unplug the saw. locate where the screws holding the bearing cover are and remove them to get to the gear and check it. Let me know if you need more help

I need to know how much oil goes into a skilsaw worm drive resvr.


Haven't heard anything so I checked the Milwaukee worm drive saw and they recomment about 1/2 oz. Make sure you use an oil for a worm drive that is not foaming. Hope this helps. Also when checking oir level have the shoe set for max depth and on a flat surface remove the oil plug, when filling tip the saw on its side and fill, turn back over and allow excess oil to run out if overfilled.

Manual for Skil Saw model 77 type 17


I have a Skilsaw model 77 type 16. I have the original owners manual and would be willing to fax you a copy.
The manual only lists a part number for the gear oil, it is No. 249. This is for a 5-3/8 oz tube of gear oil. I checked with my local hardware store which services this saw and they called a factory rep. They told the hardware store with shipping and handling it would cost about $17 for the oil! However they also said that a 90 weight gear oil is close enough to solve the problem.
Hope this helps.
