Default Dragsaws

Anyone have any info on dragsaws from the late 1800's early 1900's, that were used for cutting stone. Otherwise know as mudsaws.
Thanks,

I did a search and this all I could find. Hope it helps a little.

Mud Saws
... Not all slab saws use diamond blades. An older style is called a mud saw and they are still available as used equipment. A mud saw has no abrasive attached to the blade. Instead, the blade runs through a troth of abrasive, which is usually silicon carbide. This is the "mud." It carries some of the abrasive with it on each pass.
... The primary advantage of a mud saw is economy; they cost much less than one with a diamond blade. Their disadvantage is that they require more maintenance. The abrasive breaks down with use and the saw must be shut down and recharged periodically. Properly set up and maintained, a mud saw works superbly.
