    You guys realize that '12345' is a way of taking offers/being nebulous about price right?

    I am fairly sure that during that time period they were made in a few different countries, including the US... and had varying spindles, designs, etc. There are a few threads here about them.

    On many sites you need to have posted a minimum number of times before being able to post to classifieds. Don't know why that's not the case here as there quite a few posts that violate the rules....

    The tag on mine says 122 blade length, 120 for bands, so I would guess they would not fit.

    I have a 1611 that takes 122" blades. Maybe you made a typo, but no way in hell 100" will fit. You can go an inch or so shorter that's it.
