question about autoscroller (jig) saw

When I was on vacation in BC back in May I stopped in at a thrift store and found this Sears Craftsman Electronic Autoscroller Saw for $10. I was wondering if anyone could give me a bit more info on it as I can't really find anything online about this one. I find it kind of cool because you can turn the handle at the front top and it will move the blade. I did buy a couple of blades for it (14tpi narrow u-type) and it does work.

For intricate work, some feel it's easier to just dial the handle versus turning the entire Saw.
Small narrow blades are also available.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
