My question is really about this short, stubby one that I just brought home today!
and here’s the reverse of it with my hand to give a sense of scale:
It has M.W.H. Co. stamped on the brass pin and, from finding this site online which shows the same stamp medallion (http://www.wkfinetools.com/cCorner/c_BrickhouseF/saws/mWells/mWells1.asp) I can see it is a Marshall-Wells Hardware Co. saw, but that’s all I know! Anybody have any thoughts on what it is? Is it just a bigger saw that was cut short at some point by a user or did it originally come this way? Also, would this be a good first saw to try my hand at restoring? I can see the medallion is in much nicer shape than the one on the wkfinetools site I linked above… Thanks for any thoughts!
PS – This is my first forum post so forgive me if the photos don’t show up or formatting is all weird…
