Eclipse Gold Hacksaw Review By: I.Ball

Category: Other Saws

Manufacturer: Eclipse

Tool Type: Junior Hacksaw

Model No: Gold Plated

The Eclipse gold plated hacksaw is a limited edition saw made by Eclipse to mark the centenary of James Neill Tools of Sheffield.

The saw was made to commemorate James Neill Tools from 1889 - 1989.

The saw is marked on one side of the frame 'Eclipse Sheffield England' and '1889 James Neill 1989' on the opposite side.

The saw was presented in a good quality blue box stuffed with blue ribbon material and was provided with a certificate.

The box lid says 'James Neill, A century of quality and service, 1889 - 1989'.

At about the time of the making of this saw, the James Neill Tools company was purchased by a group which went on a few years later to go by the name Spear & Jackson (Spear & Jackson is a long running name involved in making hand tools, particularly saws).

James Neill Tools was the company behind the making of Eclipse tools and a company which in their time acquired a number of high profile companies such as Elliott Lucas, Moore & Wright and Spear & Jackson.
