Hi Warren,

Do you have a make/model. _I am understanding a "whiz saw" as a generic term?

Is it like a jigsaw mounted upside down in a small table ?
Could be this manufacturer.


Makers of the new WHIZ SAW. Cuts all stock except metal up to 1" thick as ripsaw, crosscut saw, band saw, jig saw scroll saw, keyhole saw and coping saw.

The founder was Harold S. Forsberg, who had earlier worked for Crescent Tool Co.. They mainly made hand tools, including screwdrivers and hacksaws, but in 1950 they made a small bench-mounted saw, which was, in essence, a handheld jigsaw mounted upside-down in a frame.

Information Sources

Thanks to Brian Kachadurian for alerting us to this maker. The 1950 Popular Mechanics Power Tool book (under Woodworking Machines) lists
Forsberg Mfg Co.
Bridgeport, CT
