One aspect of selling and dealing with saws is the rich history. I spend a good deal of time searching the web, emailing friends, and posting on boards looking for background on the many saws I have. Some are simpler then others, like Disstion. Others can be a little more tricky like H.M. Finch.
Recently I restored a saw made by Sheffield Saw Works and not knowing about them I email a friend from England that also belongs to the lumberjock boards. He quickly pointed me in the direction of E. C. Atkins.
What I found so great about was the use of an established British name used as a ploy to sell saws made here in the US. Seemed very P.T Barnum-ish to me.
Then researching a little deeper I found that both Men were born and spent time in Connecticut.
