My new Thor 7-1/4" Circular Saw
« on: November 06, 2017, 08:38:22 PM »
Thor is my favorite brand of power tool... I tend to snag them whenever I find them at yard sales. Usually they're quite cheap, but they are always overbuilt. This one I paid a bit more than I'd have liked for... But I've never seen a Thor saw before, and it was just too pretty for me to pass up... This beast weighs in at a whopping 15lbs! I replaced the cord, and she works like a champ! Now I can pitch the crappy antique Black and Decker I've been using and use something with some class! (After some strength training...)

What a streamlined beast! I would have had a hard time leaving it.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

That is really, really cool!  I'd have snapped that up, too!

I have my uncle's 1/4" Thor drill, and use it regularly.

Could you post a picture? I've never seen a small Thor anything XD

I've got one of their hand drills with a 3/4" chuck, and two with 5/8" chucks, but never seen a 1/4"
