Stillman Saw Set Adjustable Patent 1848
This is a very nice example of a very early patented saw set marked "A. STILLMAN" (I don't see the patent date on this one. This may be a later patented configuration with only two width tapered ends to choose from where the old patent had 6 on a rotary selector). It's a hard to find tool that was manufactured and sold for about 60 years as far as I can tell in research (so this model may be from the early 1900's). It measures 6.5"long overall. It's a simple design, yet effective on cross cut saws of that day. The handle is solid, with a good brass ferrule, the steel is clean and nice, a few tiny pitted areas. A really nice, old, simple saw set!
