Suggestions on the Care of Saws

by Charles C. Taintor

Back in the late 19th century there were no infomercials (Sorry Vince of Sham Wow fame) to advertise a new product. As such, inventors and manufacturers published free booklets and volumes which served two purposes. The first was to educate the reader on how to do something. The second was to propose a problem with the current method of accomplishing it, and then offer a solution by way of the device they were selling.

Such is the case in this 1908 era 24 page booklet. In it, Taintor gives the reader his opinions on how to regulate and file teeth and of course how to set them. Taintor then describes the problems associated with all saw sets made at the time, and how his family of saw sets overcome that problem.

Taintor gives detailed instructions on the differences between his Positive #7, 7 1/2 and Natural Grip #27. Also included are the detailed instructions on which anvil face to use and placement of washers for more or less set.

Many enjoy this type of saw set, but few have the instructions which come with it. Absolutely a must if you own and use Taintor sets. And, even if you don't, a fascinating read filled with knowledge and subtle self promotion.

The original booklet measures approximately 3 1/2" by 6".
