OT: Rockwell MFG CO vintage tools

Any value/market for vintage Rockwell metal cased power tools. Ive got an old "sawsall" among other tools and thought about turning it into a marker as I stoped using this a few years back as the wiring in the armature has brken down and causes the occational shock when using it. I know that the metal cased tools dont meet any modern safety standards, and since I have other sawsalls at my disposale to use, this one needs to be used for something, rather that reapairing and using it. So is there any value to these old tools, or should I just save them for future PB reincarnations?

Have the motor rewound and use it those toll usually last several life times over. I prefer old tools as they are better made with much better quality than can be had now.

I agree with that 100%. I've got some occupied germany hand tools that'll do the job better than anything new you can pick up at home depot.

This is true and false. The good sawsalls are metal cased at the bottom of the tools, the part you hold on to is supposed to be made of plastic to reduce the risk of electrical shock if you saw into a wall or something and hit a wire inside.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there... your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth.. live it.. love it..

ONLY if double-insulated! MANY old tools are NOT.
