Looks like an old one!

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.
Nice!That looks like somethin' from a horror movie.I bet a person would still be vibrating 5 minutes after stopping that saw.
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?
Ouch.That looks like the bastard-child of a chainsaw and a posthole auger!So castration and "dead man's hand" are just 2 of it's possible side-effects?Right-on....I
love power tools!
Either way, there goes your sex life.....
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.
