Don, I certainly appreciate the page you scanned for me. I even looked at some carpentry saw catalog information to try and see a similar etch to figure out some of the hard-to-see portions. It is neat to at least determine the age. I picked up this saw and 3 other, currently unidentified, saws as a group. The seller had the two one-man saws advertised, but also had 5 two-man saws he was about to list for sale. I couldn't resist and with my other-half's permission, bought the two I thought I would better be able to sharpen and put into use again, at least occasionally for enjoyment.sandersdwa wroteCOLON ↑August 25th, 2019, 10:17 amI purchased the 1911 catalog and scanned that page for you. I see there are now folks advertising to sell electronic copies of that catalog for $15.
I have collected catalogs to help me identify saw make and model and maybe determine age. Some of the age can be determined by the etch style as seen in the catalogs.
Hope I helped.
At some point, I may be posting again for other saw identification help once I get the rust under control.
Thank you again for the help,
