    New Type of Saw For Sale

    Well it's really an old type of saw I never noticed in the past, but it looks brand new. The ad is listed under "Milwaukee" on Craigslist in Cincinnati and claims to be flush cutting or flesh cutting. Anyone need this?

    It doesn't have all the normal safety features but does have a trigger lock.

    Are you sure that isn't just a picture of the saw with the guard removed? That looks like a law suit waiting to happen.

    David, positive. They are no longer allowed to sell it in the USA, but the name it was made under is "Flussa". You can find it using an Internet search. There is a Flussa kit for sale on eBay right now as well, item 173622333632. They all look unused for some reason.

    My wife bought a hobby farm for my retirement years. All three homes on it needed rebuilt, and then the 90 year old man who sold it neglected it for 25 years. Then there are tractors, tractors that break, tractors to maintain.....just a few things to keep me busy.

    I have a vague childhood memory of hearing an old carpenter complain about new fangled circular saws. He didn't like the movable part of the guard that wraps around the lower half of the blade. When did that that part of the guard become mandatory?

    My grandfather's old worm-drives from about the 1930's (?) are in the shop and have the guards on them. He had both a small and 7 1/4" worm-drive. The smaller worm-drive proves very handy to have.

    That is just what I am looking for. I have on old large, heavy, barn style sliding door that is sagging just a bit enough to start dragging on the driveway. ( It has been up over 40 years )I need to trim about a 1/4 inch of the bottom, that would do the trick.

    Isn't it just a jamb saw?

    It is not a complete saw, itsays it is a flush cutting attachment for a regular Milwaukee 7-1/4" circular saw.

    Perhaps we have to go back to the original 1924 Skilsaw to find one without the lower guard. The pictures on https://www.woodworkersjournal.com/s...-tool-company/ seem to show one without a lower guard.
