But those who arenít familiar with
every sawmaker in the intergalactic entity might want to read a
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:
LONDON SPRING STEEL SAW
(arrow penetrating a crescent moon)
S & N CO
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.
