SAW SETS. When the fever of invention attacks a mechanic, if he is a machinist or engineer his attention is turned toward the improvement of Wrenches; if a carpenter or wood worker, he thinks what the world needs is a better Saw Set than it happens to possess at that particular time. In our experience of about thirty years, we have seen— in embryo and full fledged —not less than 200 styles of Saw Sets. We have handled and sold at least fifty different kinds. A few of these were good, many of them indifferent, and more were of so little account that we hope we may be forgiven for having sold them. We are constrained to believe that no other concern in the world has had quite as much experience in the line of Saw Sets as ours. In our earlier experience we sold more of the style of sets known as Hammer Saw Sets.
About fifteen years ago the Morrill Saw Set was brought out, and met with great favor. It was a radical departure from any of the styles then in use, and had a number of good features. We presume that since the Morrill Saw Sets were placed upon the market, there have been more of them sold than of all other kinds put together and we understand that Mr. Chas. Morrill has made a handsome fortune out of the manufacture and sale of this Saw Set.
There are four types of Sets for Hand Saws. The first is the Plate Set, which consists of a steel plate or bar with notches cut in it, the tooth being inserted in a notch suiting its thickness and bent over. This is the oldest style, and is but little used ; we do not sell them. The second is the Hammer Saw Set. One of the oldest and best known styles of this type is the Aiken ( Fig. 3541). Others are the Bemis & Call, Roth, Barton, Eclipse, Smith, etc. The third is the Hand Lever type, worked like a pair of plyers, and in the use of which the tooth is bent and "squeezed" or compressed into position ; the best known of this type are the Morrill and Taintor. Others are the Leach, Nash. Keeler, Monarch, etc. The fourth is the Spring Lever although this can hardly be called a distinct type, as it is perhaps more of a Hammer Saw Set than anything.
WAGON ICE SAW. marked with figures, the figures showing the number of teeth to the inch in the saw to be set; for example, if the saw has four teeth to the inch, turn the anvil until the figure 4 comes up directly in front of the plunger, and so on.
AIKEN SAW SET. This is one of the oldest styles of Hammer Saw Sets, and is, we believe, one of the best —if not the best. There are imitations made, but the genuine is now very cheap, and is superior.
TAINTOR SAW SET. The Taintor Saw Set is one of the latest styles, and we think it is the best of the Hand Lever Saw Sets. In the short time that they have been on the market, there have been thousands of them sold, and we have not known of a single case of dissatisfaction.
