A few days ago I found a dovetail saw at an antique shop in Holmes County Ohio. It appears to be a good quality saw that someone was using with a crude homemade wooden miter box. There is a name stamped on the blade which reads Shelden Phelps & Co., and also is stamped Cast Steel. I can’t seem to find any information on the maker on the internet and am wondering if anyone has any information or can point me in the right direction? Thanks to all.
