well if the piston is not going up and down any more then something internal is broken and probably the saw is ready for the trash heap

I agree. Is it an old cheap-o B&D? If you want to figure out what's wrong, I'd suggest you look for a schematic of your brand & model on the internet. Once you find the schematic, you'll probably be able to guess which parts transfer the motor drive to the piston of the blade.

Yeah, but it's a lot more fun tearing the thing apart to see how it runs. Don't need no stinkin' schematic.

Stated like a man Wayne. This also includes road maps and stopping for directions. LOL.

Product disassembly is an excellent father-son activity. If a few parts get misplaced or you cannot remember how to re-assemble it, that's motive enough to go shopping for a replacement.
