Offered is a vintage (1950s-70s) Porter-Cable 7" circular saw. The model is 115, S/n 31895. Equipped as shown in the picture.

I tested it and it starts and spins smoothly. I found it to be quieter than most circ saws.

Condition is used but nice, with normal scuffs and scratches. Blade is questionable. Cord has taped sections and a missing grounding prong.

Terms of This Sale

Provided are all my auction terms, plus additional information that I hope will contribute to a successful transaction. If anything is unclear or doesn't meet your needs, please ask before bidding. Exceptions will not be made after the auction. If you bid on or purchase this item, you are agreeing to these terms, whether you've read them or not.

I realize that the terms are almost always longer than the item description, but every time I have a problem, the terms get a little longer to try to prevent a recurrence of that problem. In a way, you're reading a roadmap to all the pitfalls found during 8 years of selling on eBay.

Stipulations in the primary item description supersede the terms and conditions given The terms are subject to change and may become out-of-date, especially in my long-term store listings.

Sales tax : Illinois residents must pay sales tax (6.5%).

Shipping : Buyer pays for shipping. Please use the shipping calculator below for an estimate of the shipping cost, which includes door-to-door tracking and insurance. Please note that it is an estimate , and that adjustments are sometimes needed to reflect actual shipping costs or available carriers. Your item will be packed with extreme care to ensure safe arrival. The shipping charge normally includes an $0.85 handling fee for materials, etc. A higher fee is charged for oversize or especially fragile items.

This item will be shipped by UPS. If your Paypal confirmed address is a PO box, you must pay by check and provide a street address recognized as valid by UPS . I may use the USPS as a last resort, but soley at my discretion. Buyers who cannot provide a valid UPS address will have the option of paying an additional handling charge or receiving a full refund after the transaction is canceled through eBay. I know this might create dilemmas for some buyers, but my volume is high, and shipments to addresses that aren't in the UPS database are very disruptive and sometimes costly.

I will gladly provide tracking numbers for items over $100, if requested. I'll track down delayed deliveries for any item, if the item hasn't been received 1 week after I shipped it. All items are insured and tracked, to the extent permitted by UPS. In the event of damage or loss, buyers are expected to cooperate and assist with the claim investigation by UPS. I will reimburse the buyer after I am reimbursed by the carrier.

I ship UPS twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays. I try to include everything paid for by 5 p.m. the preceding day. If you need to have an item delivered by a specific date, please ask before bidding. I ship USPS once per week.

I work out of my home in Joliet, IL, and will allow local pickup if you can do it on a schedule convenient to me. Local pickup is subject to a $2 handling fee.

Alaska and Hawaii . Because of the high cost of using UPS for Alaska and Hawaii, I use USPS exclusively for those states. The shipping cost will be determined after the auction - use the USPS web site to obtain an estimate for shipping from zip code 60442.
