I have acquired a W. F. & J. Barnes Combination Machine (circular saw, scroll saw & boring) which was apparently introduced to the world in 1876. Since the saw has been sitting in my MILs garage for at least a million years, it is in less than stellar condition.
I am looking for any information that is available about this unit. Pictures of the drive mechanism would be absolutely wonderful. OWWM thus far has been very limited.
If you have any information or better yet if you have one that you could photograph for me I would be forever in your debt.
FYI: this piece, as far as I’ve been able to tell, is one of the earlier machines with the smaller “flywheel” off to the side.
