i bought this saw at an auction a few weeks back and can not find a thing about it anywhere. can anyone help me. it is a right or left hand saw with two on switches on the handle. one of the patents is from 1952.
even the electric cord says stanley tools. it cuts up to 7/8 of an inch. i used it today and cuts very nice. i have contacted stanley tools , skil tools and bosch tools. they all say that bosch bought stanley power tool co. back in the early 60s so no one has any record of it.
any one out there that know or has seen one of these saw please let me know.

Hi,

I just made a blog about my stanley eager beaver circular saws. I welcome inquiry from you and will try to answer any questions you have. If you or anyone else knows where to buy blades or another one of these saws, I would like to know about it.

I just bought a Stanley eagar beaver saw yesterday at a flea market for 5 bucks and it works great. I have worked as a carpenter for 45 years and this is the first time I’ve seen one. I’m planning on using it for wood siding.Always being able to see the blade will help.

just be careful with it. it was taken off the market because so many people got hurt. kick back if you have it up side down. but it would be nice for siding. i used mine for paneling just a few hours ago. i got mine with a few extra blade and never needed to buy any. you are the only other person i have ever seen with one.

kick back is an issue as with all tools be safe. I have had mine for over thirty years. I had the motor rebuilt about 28 years ago. I do not use it often but it is a good tool. I bought a carbide blade for it. Wish I had bought a few of them at the time. How many have a reversable skill saw. lol always having an open fence lets you cut in close and have full support of the fence on the work piece. It was designed for cutting paneling from the face side of the panel. You can cut with the blade operating in the reverse direction so it does not fray the wood when cutting cross grain. this works fairly well with thin panels.

I bought the Eager Beaver new, I think in the late 60’s. It’s a great saw especially for cutting out rectangular
shapes in plywood. I need new blades or someplace to get the steel blades that came with it sharpened.
Any suggestions?
My grandfather build cabinet faces and doors by using a circular saw to plunge cut out the doors. That was in the 50’s with those saws. It is the best way that I have found to do straight and precise cuts in a sheet of plywood.
I have not met anyone else who has one.
