I had a week spare recently so knocked this nice little thing out. I haven't done a full resto thread because theirs one already some where. This one dates from 1945. Its going to live over the pond so the motor was rewound for 22Ov. My motor guy tried to tease out the star windings but the bitumen was too brittle and brought off the insulation on he windings.
These are really nice little saws and this one has presets for various angles and compounds. They can take the old style gun metal trenching head which work really well. They come up pretty cheap as well.

Mark, great work, as ever. I'm sure the new owner will be as thrilled with it as I would be.
