Oh my, guess "The End is Near"...Newman now has a second corded router...never thought I'd see the day;)

I'd grabbed that one too for $10 especially looking at the first picture and seeing it has anti-gravity powers!:lol::D

Interesting etch on that second saw..."The Farmer." Looking forward to see what else you find and learn about that one.

My theory is he's going to sell it for $50 and buy 20 hand saws?

And don't forget 5 new (old) planes.

Now have 3 routers in the shop, counting the latest buy.   Old B&D hanging in a Skil router table....a 2hp Craftsman "kit" with fixed and plunge bases, and now this little Dewalt.    Someday..I might actually USE them...:rolleyes:

Some day now, you'll have to buy some router bits :unsure:

Update on that "The Farmer"  saw...asked Pete Taran  to look at it......Disston made a saw called the Imp.     They would also custom etch for Hardware Stores using this saw.     Bolts used are from 1875.   

 

So, some Store was selling a brand called the Farmer back in the mid 1870s.   Disston made the saw, etched for that brand.   Warranted Superior medallion.    Would have been up to that store to honor the warranty .     So, this saw is close to ...140 yrs old? 

 

The short saw IS a D8,  a Panel saw from before the 1928 line-up changes.   I may have that one sharpened back up. 

 

Router?   Haven't even plugged it in, yet.     The bit has been removed, and cleaned up.   The router looks a wee bit like a small B&D one I got a few years back

Right down to the power switch.    Except the B&D only takes 1/4" bits.     This is what you see in some of the shop photos.

Hmmm, Wonder how hard it would be to switch the two out,  in case I would ever need a large bit?     Will have to check the wrenches used on the B&D collet.....someday...

Thanks for the research and history lesson on the saw...I sure wish it could talk and tell what it's done in its life and well as those who used it.:)

They just don't make quality old tools any more!:lol:
