Etna Saw 24 Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Hand Saws
Tool Type: Hand Saw
Model No: 24
The Etna saw number 24 is made with a cast iron blade and a Beech hardwood
handle of simple design. The handle has much less intricate design than
many saw handles of the time.
The 24 handle is secured to the blade with the use of three brass splitnut buttons.
The saw blade etching shows a picture of a mountain which I would guess represents Mount Etna.
I am not 100 percent 'Etna' is the saw maker, it is possibly a brand. There are possible links to Spear and Jackson who operated from the 'Aetna Works' for a long period of time.
The Etna saw shown is 26 inches in length and has 6 1/2 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.
Number Of Buttons: 3
Type Of Buttons: Brass, Split-nut
'Warranted Cast Steel Sheffield, Etna, Trade Mark, No 24 (and possibly a C or an E)' along with a picture of a mountain.'
