Warran & Ted Demands Some Respect  by Kim Malmberg

Here's an interesting saw. Those of you who are in the know can start yawning now.

 

But those who arenít familiar with every sawmaker in the intergalactic entity might want to read a bit further.

The saw is a full length Warranted Superior crosscut saw with a plate length of 26 1/4 inches. The plate height at the handle end is about 7 inches and about 2 1/2 at the toe. The saw is a very slight skew back with a partially worn and faint but mostly intact etch. The saw is filed 8 PPI.

The etch reads:

THE
CELEBRATED
LONDON SPRING STEEL SAW
NO 1902
TRADE MARK
(arrow penetrating a crescent moon)
S & N CO
PATENT GROUND
WARRANTED
SICKELS & NUTTING Co.

Sorry for the poor photography, but the etch really is a bit faint. I know, I could use soot, indirect light, black magic and witchcraft. But I am a mere mortal so I took on the etch with a camera and then abused the image in Photoshop.

The Sickels (or possibly Sickles) & Nutting Co was a wholesale hardware company in Davenport, Iowa, and later became Sickels, Preston & Nutting Co, when Mr. Preston joined the partnership.
