Re: Simonds No. 113?

I'd guess that the stamp is more likely a past owners identification rather then a makers mark.

Re: Monster M tooth 2

A well preserved saw. I wonder when it was made?

Be sure to keep a good rust protection on it or it will be just another old rusty saw in short time.

Re: Atkins Handles

You almost never see a handle with paint on it. Whatever was used was not very durable.

This one may give you a clue of the color:

Re: Curtis Saw Company St. Louis

Highway Bob,
A Simonds No. 66 had flat bottomed raker gullets. See a 1912 catalog at:

Re: Which saw should I use?

Likely the stiffest of your 4' long saw would be the best for one man falling. Check out my video on crosscut falling at:

Re: Re-saw a 5/4 oak board

Dang Jim, that M tooth saw sure is pretty. Yea, I've been away from this site and clicked on this thread for no apparent reason, and I was surprised that I was the original author. I haven't yet cut the board, mainly because I've moved into a house without a shop and my tools and wood are inaccessi...

Re: Saw ID

Looks like it may be in good enough shape to see a logo etch if you look closely. Other then that just looking in old catalogs a guess would be an Atkins numbers 4, 55 or 225, they all seem to be the same shape with just the steel being different. In Simonds number 22 and 324 look similar with 22 be...

Re: Simonds saw shortened on both ends?

The thickness of the teeth on a crescent ground saw are the same full length so there is no advantage to cutting off the ends to get a uniform thickness. The No. 22 is a crescent ground saw. Normally perforated lance tooth saws are thinner, more limber and originally cost less then lance tooth saws....
