RIP SAW. Jacob Rogers of Lowell, MA. 25-1/2" blade, 5-1/2 tpi, good nib, applewood handle with split nuts and lark's-tongue, flush optimistic eagle medallion with "Warranted Superior", small chip from upper horn and one tight crack.

Simonds No. 61. 26" straightback blade, 5 tpi, good early applewood handle with notch and elaborate wheatsheaf, minor surface rust but clear etch. Good+ 50-100 E-094 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2704/e-094 E-094. CROSSCUT SAW. Disston No. D-23. Postwar example of the workhorse of the Disston line, very slight wear to handle finish but blade looks like it never touched wood, 26", 10 tpi. Fine 50-100 E-093 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 2019-04-19T00:00:00+01:00 /auction/list-auctions/viewbids/2703/e-093 E-093. LOT OF TWO BAD SAW IDEAS. Disston D-100 and 1874 Compact. In the 1960s Disston equipped D-100 saws with a funky sleek aluminum and wood handle in an apparent attempt to make them look cool, 26" blade, 8 tpi crosscut, blade has some surface rust but etch clear. And Henry Disston himself came up with the 1874 Compact, with a full length 26" blade that extends under the handle to reduce the overall length to fit in a toolbox. Since he was the boss, apparently no one had the nerve to point out that you couldn't make a cut more than 2" deep without the handle hitting the wood. 9 tpi crosscut, tight crack in the handle, etch faded but legible.
