    Bought at an estate sale today, a 1940s Dremel Motosaw. Basically a hand held scroll saw. As basic as a powertool could get, it's an electromagnet positioned below a spring steel bar which attaches to the bottom of the sawblade. The handle is wood, and it's a good thing, since the wires to the magnet are right by your hand, separated by a rubber washer. If I brought this onto a jobsite today, the OSHA rep would have a heart attack.
    That said, it's not a bad tool, in adult hands. It works, and I'll see how well once the blades I ordered arrive.

      I had one as a kid, late 50's. I actually think they were hobby type saws for kids. They actually work great. My motor eventually burned out. This of course was when we were allowed to drink out of the hose and not be told,by the weather people, it was hot out side.
