It's been called the "saw that built America." The Worm Drive Skil-Saw's 75th anniversary is being celebrated this year.

And today the 75th Anniversary Skil Worm-drive Chopper was on display at Acme Tools in Grand Forks. The bike was designed with the saw in mind using the Skil colors of Red and White as well as stainless steel spindels and hubs that are solid brass.

It was built by Paul Jr. Designs to commemorate the saw's 75th.

The chopper is not for sale. But one almost exactly like it will be up for auction on e-bay from September 4th through the 14th. The starting bid will be 25-thousand dollars. All proceeds will go to Veterans without Homes.
