Re: Help with this Disston one-man

My guess would be a Disston No 2 as seen in the clip shot from the 1911 catalog. Note the etch matches from what I can tell with your picture. The catalog graphic does not show a model number (or name) in the etch. Most of the Disston etches have the name or model number directly under the icon but ...

Re: Ohlen-Bishop 1927 catalog

Interesting how they are all like a Simonds saw with same model numbers. Except the 225 which is just like an Atkins Victor 225.
Anyone know some of the history on this?

Perforated Lance One Man 392 Victor?

Is this an Atkins 392 Victor one man saw? Graphics in catalogs show perforations in the heel and this one has two in the toe.

Re: Simonds 520 RAINIER ?

My 520 has no separate Seattle Hardware etch. The main etch is a SIMONDS MANUFACTURING CO etch with much more detail than the cutoff 520 for sale. The RAINIER in the banner appears similar or the same. I've wondered if RAINIER was the name of the model until it was given the 520 number?

Re: Simonds 520 RAINIER ?

Gary, Thanks. I also noticed it when it was posted for sale. I've been busy or I would have pulled my saw out and looked for the "hardware" part of the etch. I hope I did not loose any of it during cleanup. It is good to find out more about my saw. Now I need to find a hardware store catalog or flie...

Re: Simonds Canada?

I was fortunate to find a Simonds Canada 1937 catalog. However, the only difference you will see in the catalog is the Etch (which contains "Canada"). The picture of the saws show only the two handle holes and it appears that and everything else may be the same as the standard Simonds 1937 catalog. ...

Re: Saw ID

I learned from Dolly and stick with her methods. I place the saw at a slight angle and trickle water over it while lightly polishing the etch area using a "Dolly Stone" and a grille brick for the rest of the saw. Dolly was nice enough to give me a couple natural pumice stones while attending her sha...
