I finally had a chance last weekend to get my Wright reciprocating saw running which I picked up from GTT member Bruce Dorsi a couple years ago.

 

 

I managed to find the owners manual for mine but production information seems to be scarce. Anyone know about these saws so I can get a year pinned down for it?

 

It weighs in at a whopping 26 pounds and is extremely loud :D

That was my uncle's saw, which he purchased new from my Dad. 

 

I can't tell you the exact year, but I would guess 1965-1969.

 

Did I give you any paperwork for that saw?

I dont believe you gave me any literature on these.

I've never seen one before! Real neat. At 26 lbs, it's gonna wear you out if you use it like a chain saw.

I have seen them in operation.  They do a very nice job on smaller stuff from what Ive seen.  If they bind, hang on :D

 

Oh, and if you need parts... I can give you directions, they dont have security.. LOL

I don't have one but I know a sight that has a lot of information about most saws ever made. If it is a GS-5020A model, it was made between 1960 and 1962.

 

Here is the link to the sight.
