Skil 12-Inch Miter Saw Model # 3820

SKIL’s Newest Compound Miter Saw is a Cut Above the CompetitionSkil Miter Saw

New compound miter saw cuts accurately and quickly for an exceptional value


Designed with the value-conscious carpenter and weekend warrior in mind, SKIL has packed in intuitive features to make the Skil 3820 an indispensable tool for building better projects.

Whether making cross, miter or bevel cuts, the 3820 completes various cuts easier, faster and more efficiently. A Laser Cutline™ guide ensures accurate cuts every time so there is no need to worry about wasting boards. With nine left to right positive stops at 0, 15, 22.5, 31.6 and 45 degrees, there is no problem tackling common miter angles. The 15 amp, 4500 RPM motor will go through treated lumber and hardwood quickly and easily while a vertical clamp holds the piece securely during cuts.

The 3820 can handle all sizes of wood. Featuring a table extension with left or right extension rails, it can support and control cuts on longer and wider work pieces while a die-cast aluminum sliding fence supports taller pieces of wood. It also features a left to right lock-off switch and handle, so left and right-handed users can comfortably make cuts.

Convenient features also include a dust bag for keeping work spaces tidy and an integrated carrying handle on top of the saw for job site to jobsite transfer. In addition, a carbide-tooth blade, for longer blade life and cleaner cuts, is included.

The 3820 is available at Lowe’s with a suggested retail price of $199. Visit for detailed product information.
