Figured I'd post a pic of my saws.
I forgot to take pictures of my Echo 440.
I have 2 McCulloch 610's that are in pieces and about 4 mini macs that are parts saws.

The ones pictured from left to right are a JD 30, Mac 110 , mini mac 30 , Lombard , Stihl 026 ,Homelite XL12
All run except for the Lombard

You need a Wright Reciprocating Blade saw to add to your collection, Brian. .....These date back to the 60's.

I have one that I'd be willing to part with. :wave:

Best pic I could find quick. The teeth move back and forth, kinda like a sawzall, but the blade stays stationary, just the teeth move.

I bet it'd loosen your fillings! At last years show, our second feature was lumber & timber items. There were 2 of these there. Guys said that they worked quite well for smaller trees and branches, but the bigger stuff, the sawdust won't clear right.

They weren't large in size, and they were just as dangerous as a chain saw.

Butchers would use them with a fine-tooth blade for meat cutting since they cut fast but didn't throw debris like a chainsaw.
