Hello All,

I was at a flea market this afternoon and I came across this vintage hacksaw. I picked it up for $5.00.

I’ve been trying to find some information on it. However, I can find any pictures that match it or close to it at all.

I’m thinking its a early Miller Falls, Clemson bros. ” The Star Company” late 1800’s era. but that’s why i’m here today, to ask you pros what you think.

The only markings are 3 individual stars spaced out on the upper frame on both sides.

overall length is 14 1/2” long with handle. The length of the frame without the handle is 10”.

top of the frame to the bottom of the installed blade is 3”

Solid 1 piece except for the wingnut Believe its steel.

any help or guidance is appreciated.

also picked up this brand new Sheffield Keyhole saw for $5 from the saw vendor
