Spear And Jackson Saw 179 Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Hand Saws

Manufacturer: Spear And Jackson

Tool Type: Hand Saw

Model No: 179


This model of Spear And Jackson hand saw number 179 is fitted with a Beech hardwood handle and a spring tempered blade.

The handle is secured to the blade with the use of five brass buttons, one of which is faced with a medallion with the markings 'Spear And Jackson, Sheffield'. The buttons are set raised from the handle.

The buttons can be tightened or unscrewed by using a flat head screwdriver on the reverse side of the handle.

This example of Spear And Jackson saw had a brass outer button shield with a ring of green on the reverse side of the handle to where these usually are seen. This appears to be the original position. I am unsure at this time if this was the design of the Spear and Jackson 179 saws or if this was a special example / special request.

The saw shown is 24 inches in length and has 8 teeth per inch (tpi). There were different lengthed and tpi versions of this saw produced.
