So my dad found me what appears to be a pretty old Sears Miter box. The plate on it reads Craftsman Miter Box No. 3650. The saw that is included only says “Disston USA”

Was wondering if anyone would know anything about this saw or where would be a good place to find it. I’m not looking to make money on it, was thinking of cleaning it up and have it be a piece to sit on the shelf in my shop. Only paid $10 for it, so don’t have much in it up to this point. My dad is old enough that he used this type of saw when he was younger, and said it appears to be complete and in pretty good shape. I will try to get a picture up when I get a little more time.

thanks for any help

On some of those old Craftsman miter boxes, they just used the Disston saws without worrying about getting
a Craftsman name on them.
