OMC6 -- J.W. King

OMC6 -- J.W. King


1890 era 8 point cross cut saw made by J.W King operating out of New York City. Blade is shiny and bright, 26" long by 6 7/8" high at heel. Handle is very nice for the age, made of beech with very minor wear and 95% finish.

Not much is known about this maker except what can be gleaned from the saw. However, there are some interesting features of this saw. The medallion has a Dec 31 1867 patent date which corresponds to the Washbourne patent which relates to how the bolts were fabricated by brazing the shanks to the head of the bolt. Washbourne also operated out of New York City, so it makes perfect sense. What is interesting is the use of these nuts post dates the much more common Glover Patent which was used on almost all saws after 1887. Curious indeed. This saw is in excellent shape and has an early look. Recommended.
