Take a look at the EBAY auction Jeff just listed. It's for an old Reciprocating saw that I thought would be interesting to some of you collectors. I donated it cause  I thought someone else would apprechiate it more than me and the money goes to a good cause.

I did and it makes my mouth water, even thogh I'm not a collector. 

Did you see the video of Chet running Jeff's reciprocating saw?   That thing cuts better than one would imagine. 

'Course, Jeff had a professional operator to show it off.  :D :D

Forgive my ignorance, but I've not seen a saw like that. Is it operating essentially like a Sawzall? Does it vibrate like a Sawzall?

Very kewl, Stumpy! 8)

Sorry, I do not know.  I have never tried to start mine.  I guess I could take it to the saw shop and have it be operated on to find out. ;D

You got me on the paper work, Jeff.

Yep, kinda like a saws-all. I just scanned in all the pages to the owners manual and started a new thread in the chainsaw section with links.

It does operate like a sawzall, but there is absolutely no vibration. It is very smooth in the cut, unless of course ya git it stuck.  :D
