Any of you guys rebuilt a circular saw like this. I cant separate the cases. All of the screws are out and it loose and spins. Any thoughts?

Sometimes the accumulated goop, and lubricant, mixed with sawdust makes a hold you would think unbreakable. I really like Kroil at times like that. I give it a spray before leaving the shop for the night, and next morning I find things a lot more agreeable. Kinda expensive, but only if you shoot it out of the can. I have some for 12 years now, still good. I just use it on stubborn stuff, after WD40 and the regulars have gone home crying.

Show a wide shot, let us see what you have there. I have a few Buck Rogers looking tools at home. That old metal casing can be fun, some call em electrifying. I think it’s the ones who aren’t grounded to well. :-)
