How much of the cut is lost when using the SkatePlate?

SkateGuide

Does the SkateGuide fit both the Sidewinder and Wormdrive versions of the SkatePlate?

Yes. The SkateGuide is universal and fits both versions of the SkatePlate. However, remember that the SkateGuide was specifically designed as a useful accessory to the SkatePlate. It also works on the big foot saw from Skil. The SkateGuide was not intended for and may not fit on other circular saws or accessories available on the market.

What is the widest cut I can make with the SkateGuide?

SkateGuide is longer than stock guides and will allow for rip cuts in excess of 12”.

H20

Yes, the SkatePlate H20 fits both the Sidewinder and Wormdrive versions of the SkatePlate. A special attachment has been designed for attaching the H2O kit to the SkatePlate.

Yes. A special attachment was designed and comes with the H2O water kit that allows for the simultaneous use of both the SkateGuide and the H2O kit.

Is the GFCI outdoor rated?

The GFCI for the H2O is rated for outdoor use.

How does the water from the spray nozzle affect the cut or chalk lines?

The brass spray nozzle for the H2O kit was designed to provide a precision spray directed specifically to the point of the cut. The spray is high pressure but low volume so it will not flood out the area being cut. Moreover, by directing the spray on the blade and behind the SkatePlate rollers, it does not affect snapped chalk lines in front of the saw.
