It just goes to show that research pays off.
The saw pictured is a 1933 "The Driver Line" jigsaw. I went to the Old Paper website who happened to have a catalog from the W.T. Grant Company that featured "The Driver Line" tools from 1933.
As luck would have it, the one catalog page shown on the web page is the advertisement for this very saw!
Suprisinger still is the fact that my luck is usually depicted by fortune cookies reading "Work or Die" or "You will lead a long, unfruitful life" or words to that effect.
Here are some of the saw's particulars:
Speeds: 765, 940, 1225, 1750 RPM
Weight with motor: 95LBS.
Shipping Weight(without motor): 105lbs.
The upper arm assembly may be removed and the roller guides placed under the table for cutting items over 48" wide.
Adjustable spring return tension
Universal chuck for blades up to 1/2"
Upper guide made from stainless steel tubing
Roller guides are grooved hardened steel
Spring steel hold down
Positive pinion blower
Ground cast iron table 45 deg. front, 10 deg back tilt
Graduate quadrant tilt gauge
Bronze main bearing automatically lubricated
Self aligning cross bend
Pretty cool tool.
I think that I am going to buy and restore it.
It looks like rust, but it is sawdust and oil.
Some of the oil wiped off.
