Default what is this power tool?

For 5 bucks at a yard sale I got a mystery tool.
Heavy as heck and the seller had no idea what it was.
I also got a nice grinder cutter to but I can figure it out.
Seller thinks it is a jig saw.

I think this is for cutting body panels out of a car or something. That is what I will try it for anyhow.

You're right, the first item is a jigsaw. Looks like it was pretty near top of the line in its day. Sorry, I don't recognize the second tool.

This is a Cutawl saw. I used mine to do steel rule die construction. Think a unfolded pizza box. It is used to make the die that cut the box. Has many uses and can do very neat work. Check this out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w6_D3wW08E

Ok I will go down to the neighbors and watch the video,thanks! I did clean up the tag and yep,it is a Cutawl. I plugged it in and it does work. Has all kinds of adjustments and such. Good to know it is a good tool for specialty stuff. I will see how it works and keep it on the shelf. The grinder thing, yea,I like it, It is a Kett Tool co machine that takes a 3 inch cutting disc. The guard moves when you press down on something and it starts cutting. It runs ac-dc.

Did good at the yard sales. Got a brand new turntable that plugs into USB port so I can put records on cd! 10 bucks!!!

The Cutawl, i think you can put a chisel like blade in it to do all kinds of cool things with thin material.

I think the second tool is used to cut drywall. Newer one has a vacuum hose attachment. Watch the video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJtq26K2ak

Dang it. . . now I have to start scouring the garage sales and small town auctions again looking for one of those. . . or just search on eBay for one.

Looks like a handy tool to have.

There is one listed on Craigslist Minneapolis/St. Paul right now for $140.00
I like Uglyblue66's price better.
