Found this old jewelers saw at an auction.
Looks pretty old.
The only mark I could find was the number “18” stamped on it.
After a minor clean up it seems to be in very good usable condition.

Nice find! I have an old Eclipse jewelers saw that is made in that fashion. I LOVE it! I can tighten the blade very tight by pressing the butt end of the sliding part of the saw down on the edge of my workbench and then tightening the thumb screw. It works much better at holding fine saw blades and can take pieces of broken blades of almost any length.

That’s a nice tool. I see those on Ebay a good bit.
