I know a couple of you fellas collect vintage power hand tools so I though, before I get rid of this, you might enjoy this bizarre accessory from Black & Decker that I picked up today at an auction. I've never heard of such a thing. This is their catalogue # 2312 "Chain Saw Attachment." It consists of an aluminum handle and an 11" long chainsaw bar (and a few miscellaneous parts) which bolt onto their "#73 and #83, 7 1/4" & 8" Super Service and H.D. Saws," in place of the circular blade and bearing retainer. The kit contains all the necessary parts. While this box looks pretty beat, it contains all the original parts and, except for some corrosion on the bar, everything appears unused. I don't see a date on any of the paperwork.
