Rust hunting around my neck of the woods is get a might thin. However, for the Princely Sum of $6 (WOW) I managed to drag two saws home. And a mystery as well: On the medallion of the Mystery saw are the following letters…
WS & M Co. across the top of an eagle, and below the eagle: WARRANTED Handle has been redrilled at one point, either due the hardware issues, or blade issues:
Something just don’t look right. Blade length is, right now, 26”. But, it does look like someone cut some off in the handle area, AND the toe end:
And those teeth! WOW! PPI is at 6 ( no stamp on the blade) but they are some BIG ones.
Maybe a cut-down saw? Franckensaw?? For $3, i can overlook all the pitting, and put it to work in the shop.
There is a trace, very faint, of an etch in amongst all that pitting. Two tries with Gun Blue barely raised it.
The other $3 saw? Not quite a “Mutt”, but seems to be a “Home-owner’ style. Also with some big, knarly looking teeth:
No etch, not even trace of a painted one on this blade. handle is a might thin, with rivets for saw bolts. I’ve got some nasty barn wood waiting for this guy….
