      just think about this, the 10 inch one sold for 195.00 in 1930 this was a very huge investment..I remember and old carpenter I would sub out to,, from timer to time his farther had a carpentry business...back then,.. the old fella would borrow my wormdrive when ever he was doing stairs //// anyways he and his brother asked there dad to by the wormdrive saw ....he said in a pigs ass, you have all kinds of the best hand saws I've bought you just shut your mouths and get back to yip a lot of money back then....
