Title: Skil Professional 4740 Recipro-Saw
Post by: BDFan1981 on November 02, 2017, 04:31:15 PM
Does anybody here happen to own a Skil 4740 Professional Recipro-Saw?

It would look just like the earlier 474 (of which I have a picture of attached, for reference), but will have the "Skil Professional" black/silver label that the company used for its line of heavy-duty power tools in the years 1985-1993, and later was renumbered "HD4740" when Skil renamed their line of heavy-duty tools as "Skil HD / Skilsaw HD." The earliest known date code for the 4740 would say "MW" to mean a September 1985 manufacturing date.
