Dang Jay, that's not funny.
"Look Ma! No hands!!" is my inescapable fear when I see old photos of saws like this one.
Here's one in action:
This one brought back some memories. If you have ever had to saw up a saw log in splitting sizes with a Buck Saw, you would appreciate this modern convenience. I had to cut and split wood for the cook stove and the fireplace by hand, every day. It is a wonder we didn't get hurt, but I was so glad to see this marvel show up on the place. We powered it with a Farmall 19 and a belt. I had this saw until recently, and gave it away, it would ring for hours it seemed it you hit it with something, good steel.

-" the saw, as if to prove that saws knew what supper meant, "
In the late fifties, I lived in a small town of about ninety people or so in N.W. MO. Our next door neighbor had one of those powered by a Farmall tractor, probably a "Regular". Everybody called them a buzz saw. He would cut firewood in the alley behind us once in awhile. I can still remember the ZINGGGG the blade made as it went through the wood. Dave
Several things i do not understand.I see the girl running the table but why are there two boys throwing away?I dave done a little buzzing with a jd a,H international,two F-20's,and a 200 International but a 19?? The mounted saw's on the H and the 200 saved a lot of work as you pulled ahead as the pile went back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Bud in Wheeler.
