I've worked in the building trades for 7 years, starting off as a framer and then moving on to interior / exterior finish work and cabinet building. I was a licensed electrician for 4 of those years, specializing in industrial / motor control design and troubleshooting, and added a welding certification and a bit of fab shop experience a while back.

I enjoy / obsess about collecting tools, particularly vintage power tools.

-- Just a girl with way too many tools.

Bree,

Those worm drive saws you mention, the 107, 117 and 127… those didn’t make the cut beyond the end of the Truman administration in January 1951. For only the lighter models 67, 77 and 87 (with 6-1/2”, 7-1/4” and 8-1/4” blade sizes respectively) survived (models 67 and 87 were renumbered to 367 and 825 respectively by the start of the Eisenhower administration).

These three saws are all rare now… I can’t imagine anyone picking up this hunk of iron today beyond the 8-1/4” blade size.

You might even consider adding this limited-edition model 77:50 to your collection, if you have $220 for it.
