As a Blacksmith I have bought old tools at auctions, and sometimes end up with more tools than I want. I have some old crosscut saws that I have been cleaning up to use around the yard to cut up unwanted Box Elder trees that are blocking the view of the water.
When I started looking through my tool stash I thought I'd find two or three saws. Turns out I have around 9! Don't remember buying them all, so I must have gotten most of them as things thrown in when buying old stuff at farm auctions.
One that I have cleaned up is a Atkins 55, Silver Steel, Segment Ground, made in Indianapolis Indiana.
It is a Perforated Lance Tooth pattern. That means it has four cutting teeth for each raker. The raker end looks like a M and cleans out the cut chips. This pattern tended to be used more for softwood than hardwood, but can be used for anything. This area has a lot of farmland between Lake Ontario and the Adirondacks. Farmers and loggers cut hardwood for firewood, timber for Railroad Ties, softwood pulpwood for the paper mills, and timber for building on their farms.
