My parents picked up a porter-cable multi saw model 531a at an auction
for about $20. It seems in excellent condition with a carry box and
assortment of blades as well as a can of gear lube.
There is a receipt for some parts that suggest to me it was well
It is a metal body that is chromed rather than the plastic I see in
more recent tools.
Is this likely to be a useable tool or an obsolete piece of junk ??
I have not tried it yet because rather than a grounded outlet it has a
2 prong plug with a seperate ground wire. I assume you hook the ground
wire to the wall plate mounting screw.
