Mystery saw with partial etch.

Post by DucksinOR » September 14th, 2021, 8:06 pm

Hi I am cleaning/sharpening a saw for an acquaintance and found a partial etch. It won’t photograph but this is a drawing of what I can make out

. I think it is likely a hardware brand but I can’t find any examples on line of an etch that is similar.

It is a 5’ perforated lance tooth that is flat ground. I don’t have a picture right now but will try to post one later. Thanks for any info.

Here are photos of the saw and what is left of the etch. It looks like it was a pretty deep etch. The wording reminds me of the etch on my Geo. H. Bishop rip saw, but I can’t find any evidence of that company making crosscut saws

Hard to see the makers mark in the photo, but I can see the circle. Atkins also had a circular mark with thee A’s in the circle. Looks a lot like an Atkins 55.
