I picked this up at a thrift store over the weekend and am curious about who the manufacturer is. It was marked $3 and the blade is sharp but needs a good scrubbing and the handle is to be replaced.
It has the “Warranted Superior” button and the handle looks to be exactly the same shape as this Atkins saw listed on ebay. The only differance I can see is that this handle is plywood while the one on the bay is solid wood from what I can tell.
I am pretty sure this is a copy or just a no name but ya never know right?
Here are pics of the saw..
And here is the Ebay auction I am referring to http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ATKINS-SPECIAL-STEEL-HAND-SAW-WARRANTED-SUPERIOR-/111008386783?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19d89d8edf&x=35&y=6 . Any help would be great.
