This one doesn’t have a long story. I saw an add on Kijiji for a miter box, paid the man his $25 and took it home.

I haven’t had time to do any restoration to it yet but the man who owned it took good care of it. Everything is square and the 29”x4” saw is nice and sharp so I can just use it as is until I find the time to clean it up.

Looks like a MF All Steel. Very nice indeed for $25!

Don – I saw your restore when I brought the saw home. The label is missing on my box so I wasn’t sure what I actually had. I should also thank you for the manual that you posted. I am looking forward to when it’s all cleaned up nice and shiny.

Smitty – I was really excited when I found it for $25. I was looking around for one for a while and I was willing to shell out alot more for a box like this
