I found this cool old saw in a box of odd and ends from an auction. I really like the look of it. Can’t find any mark on it except “64” in two places.
Just curious if anyone has seen one before and can put a manufacture’s name to it

Your find looks like a “jewelers saw”. It has a coping saw blade in it but likely should have a jewelers saw blade. I have both (coping and jewelers) saws. The jewelers saw is much finer but throat depth is much smaller. It does look vintage and in good shape.

Jeweler’s Saw… I like that. Coping saw didn’t feel right but I couldn’t think what else to call it. Found several examples since. Wish I could ID the maker but this is a start.

Ok… that seems to work too. Checking vintage fret saws I found a Dixon that has the same little brass bead on the end.

Have your say...
