Early Diamond Edge Bench Saw 9ppi -- Freshly Sharpened
Diamond Edge was a trademark of Shapleigh Hardware Co. This 14 inch long bench saw was likely made fairly early in their history, as the etch predates the more familiar diamond-shaped trademark. The beech handle also has split nut fasteners, indicative of manufacture before 1875. There is some pitting at the toe. The handle is solid, with no chips or cracks.
The 9ppi crosscut teeth have been freshly sharpened:
Tooth Type: crosscut
Rake Angle: 15º
Fleam Angle: 25º
Slope Angle: 0º
Tooth Set: 0.003"
