Good bye ol' friend

Post by RebStew on November 22nd 2011, 4:01 am

I have had it for almost 13 years. Now that's not long for some people but this saw has cut everything from 70' single wide trailers to complete cars. It has been used on more hot rods than number of cars that show up at some local cruise ins. Chopped the tops on a few cars as well as building fences and other things for the yard. It was a good one. Something that I used more than one would think. I broke the guard on it a few years ago but she kept on going. Tonight while using it the part that holds the blade busted in two. While I get upset when I brake a tool this one has been worth 3 times what I paid for it when I bought it new. The only problem is knowing I will buy another one and it won't hold up anywhere near like this one did. Even the same brands they sell now are junk. It's sad to see a worth while shop pal end up in the garbage. No

I have a Milwaukee that is 28 years old. I got it from a buddy that needed some quick cash. It's so worn out you can use it for a scroll saw. It's really funny to watch someone else try to use it. The dang thing just won't quit though. cheers

Look for and old one on evil bay. I see new/old ones in the packages that are 20 or 30 years old from time to time.

I can't count how many times I have tripped over that saw and cut my foot.
