This machine we have sold for up-wards of twenty years, and while during that time there have been a great many different styles, up to within a few years ago it was the only foot power circular machine that could be considered as first-class in all respects. In fact, at the present time we believe there is but one machine that equals it, and that is the one shown in Fig. 4057. This last named machine has one ad-vantage, in that it can be supplied with Self-Feed Ripping device, Scroll Saw Attachment, and Moulding Attachment. The only attachment that can be furnished with the Hand and Foot Power Circular Saw is the Boring Attachment.
The table is 28x37 in.; the grooves for gauges are planed in an iron top, which is 10 in. wide. Gauge tongues are of steel and accurately fitted. The 20 in. and 5 in. gears are of iron, the 2 in. pinion of gun metal, and all gears are carefully turned and accurately cut.
We recently had one of these machines sent in for repairs that had been used constantly and hard for eighteen years. The cost of repairing was about $10.00, and the machino was then practically as good as new.
No. 1 machine, $54.00; with Boring Attachment and Side Treadle, as shown in cut, $60.00. Price includes one each, 7 in. Cross-Cut and Rip Saws, 2 Cutting off Gauges, one Rip Gauge, 2 Crank Handles and Wrench. Weight, 420 lbs.
No. 2 machine is identical with No. 1, excepting that it has a heavier balance wheel, giving more power. Is sold at an additional cost of $4.50.
POWER SAWING MACHINERY.

This is practically the same machine as the one shown in the foregoing cut, but arranged for power only. The pulley is 3 inches in diam., 4 in. wide and is placed on an arbor between the bearings. Although not very heavy, it is a well made machine, and for medium and light work will prove a very desirable one.
Machine only, $36.00; Countershaft, if desired, $13.50; Boring Table, $5.00.
IMPROVED SLITTING SAW TABLE.

IMPROVED COMBINATION SLITTING AND CUT-OFF SAW TABLE.
In above cut machine is arranged for cross-cutting. The bed is mounted on Patent Roller Bearings in such a manner that the whole table is made to move back and forth, carrying the work absolutely square with the saw. The table runs so easily, it requires less than one pound pressure to move it under any load, from one to 300 lbs. The frame work is made of black birch and rock maple, thoroughly seasoned and kiln-dried; the bed is glued-up of narrow strips and securely fastened to heavy iron cleats, so it cannot warp or split. A throat 5 in. wide is placed in each table ; this is quickly removed for dado cutting and all similar work.

It would seem unnecessary for us to expatiate upon the necessity of a reliable protection from accident on Circular Saws. This device not only does away
