Hammer style saw set
« on: November 15, 2020, 09:47:03 AM »
Picked up one of these last weekend.  Unfortunately mine has no identification; I understand they were made by several concerns.

Took me a bit to figure what it is. Made from an 1830 patent--before the government began to issue patent numbers, which first began in 1836:    https://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/ido/oeip/taf/issuyear.htm     and     https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Patent#:~:text=Recovery%20of%20the%20X%2DPatents,-The%20United%20States&text=The%20first%20patent%20denoted%20with,was%20given%20the%20number%201.

Yes, I have seen that site.  In fact, that is where I first stumbled across it.
To tell you the truth, I had never seen--or heard of--a hammer style saw set.  When I first picked it up off some lady's garage floor, I thought maybe it was for cutting saw teeth.  What I know about saw sets, you could write on the back of a three cent stamp.
I suppose I will soon find another--and then never see another as long as I live.  That is how these things run for me.

Of course, first you have to find a three cent stamp.  At one time, I could have helped you out; but I gave my grandmother's small stash of non-collectable but cool stamps to a young woman who likes old stamps, maps, and other things that most of her generation would consider weird.
