« Part 5: Millers Falls No.104 drill Part 6 of Tool study series no next part

Shortly after a post about the Millers Falls No.42 coping saw on C. Schwarz’s blog – the saw became “challenging” to find. This might be because it offers one of the better mechanisms for adjusting the blade. So I hunted around for about 3 years before I finally found one, then two, and finally 3 saws. But the one thing that struck me was that all three were different – not strange in the tool world, but maybe strange for a saw. Here’s a small study of the No.42. The only thing missing is that I can’t place the saws from a timeline perspective.

If anyone has a MF catalog from 1910-1930 maybe you can shed some light onto it. They aren’t in the 1938 catalog I have, so I’ll surmise that they existing from 1910 to the mid 1930s.
