Reciprocating saw evidence in the Korns farmhouse, Southampton Township, Somerset County.

Reciprocating saw marks in the Korns family farmhouse

This 2008 photo was taken in the basement of the currently uninhabited 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. The photo shows the underside of the first story floor boards, and plainly shows that they were cut with a reciprocating saw, rather than a circular saw. This doesn't positively date the house, because reciprocating saws were still in use in Somerset County rather late.
