Stuhlinger's Saw

Post by chancwj » March 20th, 2017, 12:24 pm

What pattern of saw would a German rocket scientist prefer? Apparently a perforated lance tooth.

Ernst Stuhlinger was one of the original German rocket scientists who came over from Peenemunde with Wernher von Braun in Operation Paperclip at the end of WWII.
I took a picture of the crosscut saw he purchased from Harrison Brothers Hardware store in downtown Huntsville AL, then donated back to them in 1990.

You ever read Stuhlinger's Letter?

Herr Stuhlinger knew a good crosscut when he saw one.

Appears to be a 324. Note the length and model number is on the upper right hand corner of the sleeve but it is a bit fuzzy to read.
