3rd, not 30th.  ;)

Kevin HVA were experimenting with electronically controlled saws way back then. If you remove the door and peer inside you can actually see the wire passage that would lead the wires from the module up to the carb box. The module and I suspect battery were to be housed in the handle. Interior dimensions are way too small to be a tool box as some thought.

True!  :)
