Got a couple old tools when my step dad’s cousin passed away- all complete in remarkably good condition, with original packaging and accessories and aside from a couple old eBay listings, I haven’t been able to find anything.

I checked out but they only had mention of the large “Shop-King” Everything-in-1 supermachine that was made by Evinrude. Not sure if that was the same company…

They are weird little contraptions, one a circular saw and one a jig saw, but they are driven by a 1/4” electric drill, which also came with the package. I wouldn’t personally want to use them for any serious work, but they are interesting.

Just looking to see what there is to know about them, any help is appreciated.

Looks a lot like Millers Falls stuff I’ve seen pictures of. A few
years back I ran across some Millers Falls catalog/price lists
with power tool lines and they had some stuff like that
I think.
