I wish I had room for this. It’s on the Cincinnati, Ohio craigslist.

I’ve seen similar models in some books. Those are total work horses. I’d like to look it over once if nothing else…

That really is an awesome saw! It’s beautiful just as a sculpture, not to mention the work horse concept!

Can’t you build a workshop over it?

It looks like a lever with a weight instead of a spring to keep tension on the top wheel or is that lever for something else? I’m from that area, but haven’t lived there in a while, plus, as hair mentioned, no room for something like that. Looks cool though.

This would need to have alot of work put into it to bring it up to a insurable and acceptably safe level.Just because they are part of history does not mean they were safe or easy to use even then.I too love old tools and it is doable but don’t expect to take it home and use it next day.IT is abeautiful item to look at though I have seen a lot of old iron thrown away over here in the UK, as rules and health and safety are so tight here Alistair
