Vintage Frame/Veneer Saw at Auction

Martin Donnelly’s upcoming auction in Indianapolis includes this intriguing frame saw.  Since I already have two of a c.1800 vintage I am not tempted.  If the overall length is 51″ the blade must be in the 48″ range.


Fingers are back to nimble but the wrist and arm being encased makes typing still a bit of a challenge.  The cast comes off Oct 31.
