Swirt – Glad its not just me.
Gary – If only tools could speak and tell us their stories. I have been trying to research this saw. I have found some information on the history of Spear and Jackson and I have seen another example of this saw (although it was filed rip), but it is very difficult to date it accurately. All I know at the moment is that it was produced sometime between 1830 and 1910 at the Etna works in Sheffield. I’ll keep trying to narrow it down. Hope you enjoy your saws.
Mads – Glad you like my baby. The next step is to make a saw vise and purchase the tools needed to sharpen it.
