Fellow lumberjocks—I recently acquired an Foley F 5 AND Foley 387 saw filer. An offer I could not refuse. They are in excellent condition, including carrier bars. Also a Foley 385—complete—carrier bars, etc. Except….. no height gauges. Anyone out there have any? would be happy to pay for them or——-know where some can be located…... or drawings, etc.

I understand the height gauges effectively space the saw plate 3/4” from the carrier. Others missing the gauges reportedly use a 3/4” block of wood or other material with success. Well done finding an otherwise complete retoother, I’m in the midst of searching for one myself.

Have your say...
