Per the inflation calculator below, that would be $543.30 in 2020 dollars.

Sooooooo. $85.00 bucks for a very clean well cared for 1984 jigsaw would be a pretty damn good deal.

Did he hang up, or did you get an opportunity to get it for $85?

I was able to get it for $85. It is clean but it is slowing leaking oil. I need to get a new gasket made for it.

Common problem. Make sure the vent hole is NOT plugged.

Is it leaking oil from the cover plate gasket or from the bottom of the housing? As JPG said oil leaking is a common problem. Most of the Jig Saw replacements are no longer available from Shopsmith. If you need to make a new gasket follow the pattern of the old one. It is important to have a cutout for the vent hole in the upper side of the housing. See the arrows in the gasket picture below.

No mater which way you place an original gasket there is a cutout for the vent hole. The vent hole is indicated by the arrows in the picture below.
