That and an old Wen jig saw. Not too bad for 80.00 obo for a collector of vintage saws.

I have no affiliation with the sale.

Funny , I had never heard of this THOR brand before , and now this is the second time this month !
The WEN brand I’ve used and owned before , but not quite this vintage : )

I saw the title and was wondering who Thor was and why he was looking through Craigslist. Really, I’m that ignorant.

Thor used to make some really nice compact little corded drills in the 60s and maybe into the 70s. They were still making all aluminum tools when B&D went to plastic.

I liked the Thor drills because they centered the motor over the handle and they had really good balance.

I would have guessed that Thor specialized in making hammers :^)

I wish it was in my budget, that would look nice next to my worm drive. I too have never heard of Thor tools till I bought one recently. Here’s the worm drive version – http://lumberjocks.com/topics/38942 Pardon the shameless plug.

This looks similar to a ‘Skill’ from my dad’s tools. Darned heavy they are.

I have to laugh every time I hear or read the word …”Thor” , mostly due to an old joke about The Invisible Man, MightyThor , and a woman with a speech impediment , lying on a beach.
