Default Peerless Hacksaw Saved From the Scrap Yard

rescued this peerless hacksaw from the scrap yard, yes it is as heavy as it looks. It has been stored inside, so nothing is stuck, just one broken handle .

Looks cool. Your photos came out very small, do you have any larger?

That's a LOT heavier than my Stover hacksaw.

Need to dig it out and get some good pictures of it one of these days I guess.

That will cut stuff straight and make it ready to use instead of alot of prep work on something cut with a band saw from Hong kong. Good save on that.

Did you ever find out about what year saw you have? I just bought one just like it today and am trying to figure out roughly the age of it. Thanks, Chris

here's an ad from 1917, they didn't change their design over the years. They just added an electric motor. Not much info on vintagemachinery.org.
