The subject of these old saws came up a few weeks ago and I decided to dig out my dad’s old miter box. It’s identical to this. It needs a good cleaning and has a little surface rust on one side of the blade but otherwise is in great shape. I knew the miter box was a Millers-Falls but didn’t know Disston-Porter made the sawblade. I had never seen “Porter” associated with Disston. How old are these saws? I’m guessing my dad bought his in the ‘50s or ‘60s. I’m planning on doing a retoration on it sometime soon. I’ll get some before and after pics.
