Norvell-Shapleigh Hardware Diamond Edge Crosscut Saw -- Freshly Sharpened
Made by Geo H. Bishop, this Diamond Edge crosscut saw was at the top of the offerings by the Norvell-Shapleigh Hardware Co of St. Louis, MO. This saw has a highly tensioned blade, which is clean and straight. The Diamond Edge etch is unusually deep and bold, another indicator of a high-end saw. The handle was refinished by a previous owner and is in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips.
The crosscut teeth have been freshly sharpened:
Rake Angle: 15º
Fleam Angle: 20º
Slope Angle: 0º
Tooth Set: 0.005"
