Hi, I just purchased an old Skilsaw 825. I will post the pictures with a close up of the serial number. Does anyone know where I can buy parts and get a schematic? The saw is in amazing condition. I was told that I should flush out the gearbox with Kerosene. I definitely need to replace the seals and gaskets. I have been working on these saws for years and usually buy all parts from M&M Tool.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Worm drive?

Yes, it’s a worm-drive.

Hi Joey and welcome to LJ…

I suppose with the cost of modern, potentially safer saws my question is why... why not just buy a new one.
