I took this saw to the antique roadshow in 2006 and I stumped them all. I,ve been trying for 12 years to find anything like it

I took it to an amish community and they said they thought it was used to notch logs for log cabins because it has that depth bar that slides up and down.

I wonder if you could share the distance (picture #1) from the bottom of the top bar to the bottom of the teeth?
6. jemc6010, 7 years ago
The saw is 6 foot long

Looks like a variation of a Drag Saw http://www.americanartifacts.com/smma/dragsaw/ds6.gif
Goerge wrote a great story here: http://www.farmcollector.com/equipment/folding-saw-zm0z12junzbea.aspx#axzz2eE5NN4Sn

His email is on the second page of the story, ask him, I think he will complete the puzzle for you.

If the top bar is a depth stop, why does it open up, kind of defeats the purpose.
In my opinion it looks nothing like a drag saw.
12. jemc6010, 7 years ago
your right I looked up a drag saw and it looks nothing like it

Go thing no one asked you 😉

Jeme6010: shoot George an email, he lives for these tools, he will explain it better than some that clearly are not mechanically inclined.
