The Original 10 ¼ Worm Drive Beam Cutting Saw

If you could finish your projects faster with better results, wouldn’t you? The Big Foot 10 ¼” Worm Drive Beam Saw Adapter Kit enables you to transform your 7-1/4” Skilsaw® and be able to cut two 2x headers or one 4x header in a single pass, speeding up your framing jobs. The Kit’s blade leaves a thin kerf and has zero blade flex, so you cut perfectly straight every time. Designed by a framer with 27 years of professional experience, the Big Foot Adapter Kit makes your skilsaw® a light, comfortable, and reliable 10-1/4-inch beam saw.

Best Beam Saw Blade on the Market

Our blades are designed with the perfect balance of strength and ruggedness. The high carbon steel, heat-treated Big Foot blade with 36 carbide-tipped teeth is the ultimate general-purpose blade. We use the best grade carbide teeth possible and thinnest plate possible to resist blade flex and still get a clean, straight, controlled cut. Our thin kerf blade helps prolong your saws life by putting the least amount of stress possible on the motor allowing higher RPMs and better resulting cuts. In just one pass, the Big Foot 10-1/4” Worm Drive Beam Saw can cut 4x headers or double 2x headers, exposed deck and porch beams, 4x4 posts, or 7 sheets with ½” plywood. Finish your projects faster with a Skilsaw® powered machine that gets the job done without cutting corners.

Superior Performance, Comfort, and Durability

The Big Foot 10-1/4” Worm Drive Beam Saw Adapter Kit was deliberately designed to make your saw only slightly heavier because weight matters when you’re working with a tool all day long. This well-balanced kit was created by a professional framer who wanted a better tool for big jobs. He had the insight to create a high-performance beam cutting saw that’s comfortable to work with during long projects. He was also familiar with the conditions framers and carpenters often work in, so the Big Foot Adapter Kit was designed to be rugged enough for even the toughest job sites.

Jobs Done Faster Without Cutting Corners

Making more of your cuts in one pass doesn’t just make for cleaner work. It makes your work go faster too. Turn your existing 7-1/4 Skilsaw® into a machine that handles your biggest jobs more efficiently and feels comfortable to use all day. Get more done in less time and enjoy an even better result than you’re currently getting when you spend more time on each project. It’s a no-brainer. The Big Foot 10-1/4” Worm Drive Beam Saw Adapter Kit gives you the best tool you can get for framing with 2x and 4x materials. Do yourself, your business, and your next project a favor and upgrade your saw to the Big Foot Beam Saw.

Wonderful idea. I use the skill 77 so it was a natural choice. Installing is a snap. You will however have to grind off a little tapped nub on the saw casting in order to fit the guard. This should not be a problem for the kind of guy who uses this tool as it seems most of us are pretty handy and it does mention it in the instructions. The quality of this kit is very good and the makers have put a lot of thought into it. It will cut all the way through a treated 4 by 4 but will just barely cut through a rough sawn cedar post. I use it to cut 3” notches in large timbers and it is not that much harder to use than the standard 77. I recommend you buy the Freud thin kerf knock out arbor blade as the one they send with it leaves a little to be desired. And yes, the blade has the diamond knock out.

Style: Style 1 Kit fits 2014 and older SKILSAWs Verified Purchase Beams have always been an issue, beam saws to big and hard to handle. The worm drive has always been the answer for 4x material but you have to make two passes, often resulting in uneven cuts and on exposed beams not a good look.

The answer Big Foot. Not only does the Big Foot cut 4x in one pass, it cuts a very clean one pass, no double cuts. And when plating the walls it cuts both plates in one pass too.

I think the what I like most is that is works and handles like a worm drive. On my last framing job I left a girder extend over a shear wall footing that had not been poured to support it until we got the concrete poured. Then because is handles like a worm drive it was easy to trim the girder flush with the end of the floor framing without any issues.

I think the Big Foot is a great addition to any tool box.

Style: Style 1 Kit fits 2014 and older SKILSAWs Verified Purchase Having used a standard sidewinder 10 1/4 makita old style for my career so far this was an excellent upgrade , plows through pt full depth of cut like butter. Base plate is also a huge upgrade from the stamped steel on the makita , well worth the money espically if you have a spare skilsaw laying around .

Style: Style 2 Kits fit 2015 and newer SKILSAWs Verified Purchase I deeply appreciate a made in the USA product and this is is one of those stand-up companies. After using this conversion kit on two jobs I feel that I can leave a reliable review. I cannot believe the accuracy as soon as your done installing, the saw cuts perfectly square. Additionally, their included blade is great for cutting GLB's and LVL alongside ripping 4x12 PT for deck framing. I could not be more pleased with the product, it's absolutely outstanding. The t-shirt they send you if you fill out the warranty is awesome!

Style: Style 1 Kit fits 2014 and older SKILSAWs Verified Purchase I have had one of these saws for 24 years until someone stole it. I just couldn't adjust to not having it and bought another one.

I had used one of these before on a job and thought it worked pretty well. When I got my own I decided to put it on a Mag 77 saw. The result was far better than I expected. The saw felt lighter than before and handled easier than when the original Mag 77 hardware was on there. The 10 inch blade feels just like the 7inch one. It made quick work of the beam cutting and am glad to have in my tool trailer.
