Good morning, I was wondering if anyone might have an extra lower blade holder for a 40-150 model? I have checked Ereplacement parts and the part is no longer made. I got this tool free but it is pretty much useless without the lower piece to make small intricate cuts. Any help will be much appreciated.

Is it possible for you to ask at a nearby machine shop for them to fashion one for you? Sometime you get lucky that way and it isn’t too expensive.

Tom, thank you so much for the lead. I won the auction for $3.25 w/ free shipping less than what it would have cost me from any replacement parts place. I always seem to get it backwards, look at Google when I should look Ebay and vice versa. DUHH!

Sheila, I have gone the machinist route in the past to get a replacement part, this tool is only a starter as it leaves alot to be desired. It vibrates terribly, the hold down is huge and gets in the way to see what I’m doing, no light or fan to blow off the debris. So in other words a piece of the proverbial shite’.
Thank to you both for taking the time to help me out. Pat

Well I am really glad you found the part (and so cheaply!) This week my beautiful cat Coco chewed the lead to my Sony Camera (again!) which is quite specialized. I looked on line and saw it at Amazon for $2.00 + $5 s/h to Canada from California. Not bad considering that I saw it priced anywhere from $37.50 to $.01 (the $.01 place didn’t ship to Canada! :( ) It is happily on its way here and it beats the heck out of the one I have, which is now more electrical tape than regular cord. My camera is older and it is the same thing that you are going through with your saw – one day I will get a better one, but for now it does the job.

Anyway – I am happy you will have the part soon and be back in business. YAY! :D

Have a great day! Sheila
