This old saw was always in my Dad's garage since I was a kid. (I think I maybe, sorta, "helped" him use it once or twice even?) He recently commented, when I refused to let it get added to the "auction" pile of other assorted lawn tools, that it had actually been *his* father's originally.
Though it didn't occur to me until later, that little bit of trivia makes this a *very* unique addition to my own collection -- Grandpa B passed away when I was a child, and to my knowledge (now) this would be the *only* one of his tools now surviving that can be so identified. (though I have several of Grandpa W's old tools, he passed away later and Mom and Dad ultimately inherited his entire garage along with the farm)
It is roughly 6' long, and I cannot (yet?) find any sort of maker's ID on it.
