I have a Sears Craftsman Industrial Reciprocating Saw with 1 1/8" stroke and 2 variable speeds with 6.0 amps. I have used this for several years. It's been sitting for the past 5. I have a battery powered. This works great. Even sawed some limbs. Cord has some tape on it. I have never had a problem. Not sure why tape is there. Would take $75.00 shipped to the lower 48. As always OBO. No use for it anymore.
