Talking Drag Saws, must see!

We had to come up with a new storage idea for drag saws since most of you know that i collect drag saws and that they also take up alot of space. I had the shop floor filled, my ok/bad shape drag saws went outside but my best of the best stayed inside, now their are only 12 drag saws inside and 10 outside.

We made a cart so that the saws would take up less space (see pics) it holds 6 saws, 3 on each side.

On the first pic, starting with the drag saw closest to the camera is:
Montgomery Ward (built by Simi Steel)
Sears And Roebuck (built by Simi Steel)
Multnomah (built by Simi Steel)

On pic #2, starting with the drag saw closest to the camera is:
Timber Wolf (built for Montgomery Ward)
Improved Wade (the newest styl of wade drag saws)
1909 Vaughan (the very first drag saw ever built)

On pic #3, is the hole cart with my drag saws on it.

beside the cart on the floor (not pictured) are:
Light weight vaughan
Wade Joinor
New styl Vaughan
Vaughan D
light weight vaughan motor
Eureka drag saw

And 10 other drag saws outside.

If anyone here needs any help or parts for drag saws feel free to contact me, i have lots of spare parts, i have been parting out lots of dupilcate drag saws of mine. Just privite message me and i will give you my e-mail so we can talk. hope you like my storage cart!!

Sincerly Chris Jerue

The gray thing you see beside the cart is a gantry crane and that is what we used to lift it up onto the cart, i used a strap, not a chain because i didnt want to damage the wood and i picked it up by the rear block.

Also if anyone needs any info on their drag saw, just contact me, i have quite abit of info for different saws. thanks, Chris

PS: i wish we put bigger wheels on the cart, it is hard to move, it only has : 1550 pounds on it with only 4 inch steel wheels.

Chris- great storage idea for your drag saws. Your collection is very impressive.

I have recently gotten into the drag saws. I have picked up a nice Eureka and will be picking up a great condition Vaughn soon.

I have purchase a little woodman m and b drag saw. I understand it must be of early design,because of the flywheel and the angle cooling fins on the cylinder, also six volt battery for power ign. It is seized up, however it did run and has been kept inside. It is missing the blade, also a question , what it is that bolts to the lift handle, there are two holes on the flat guide ? Is there any manual for this saw with specs. ?

There is a Wade engine over here in Hermiston. I saw it while looking through a pile of wheels. I will ask how much he wants.
