Truthseeker2013 : How do I know there is only one?
It is truly a one of a kind saw. I hate to part with it. My loss is your grain. Word got out about it in my neighborhood and every time I turned around, someone was at my door asking if I could undo some dang mistake they made. Rather than lie to anyone I decided to sell the dang thing so I could say I sold it and they would stop ringing my dang doorbell.
