It began as a a search for some good tools for a big home renovation and it evolved into an obsession with vintage Skil worm drive saws, I’m up to 6 ranging from the very rare Model 67 5 7/8” to the less rare but insanely big 12” (11 7/8” actually) model 127

Anyway, the latest is a very nice model 825 with flaming brushes and i broke one of the plastic (bakelite?) caps and still didn’t get the brush out.

Any suggestions for where these can be found?

Most any electrical supply house should be able to match it up. Bring the non-broken one with you, they wont look it up by application, they’ll just match it side-by-side.
