    Talk about a relic. Probably would look pretty neat when refurbished, and to get it running would be a bonus.

    Here's an old one I have sitting on the floor of my office. It's a Wright reciprocating saw--the blade is attached directly to the crankshaft.

    Apparently they didn't work very well in the woods. However, people who do things like post-and-beam construction like the precision. Kind of like a big, gas-powered Sawzall.

    I cleaned it all up but have never started it.

    Actually, this is the original Vibe-King, Titan. I pull this mother out when it's time to cut the big timber.

    It starts like your grandpa's old lawnmower--with a rope wrapped around the flywheel thingy located between the handle bars. How'd you like to get one of your fly buttons caught up in that?

    PRICELESS!!!

    I have an old 1950's bobcat chainsaw with a clinton engine for power. I keep it around just to remind me of how manly I am not anymore.
