    Wattizzit blade #3

    Last mystery blade from the inherited 'stuff' box.
    This is a real circular saw blade. Has jillions of set teeth.
    Is 3 1/2" diameter with 1/2" arbor.
    I'm guessing some kind of slitting blade.
    Keep in mind, it is 50 to 80 years old so is not for one of the newer joining systems.

    This comment has nothing to do with this post but I just remembered that it was a shaker woman who invented the circular saw.
    That one maybe is not so far from the original ones.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Except for the age, that would be a good guess.

    best I could find is the companys website http://www.simondsinternational.com/...rnational.com/ the Smallest circular saw i could find from around then was a 6" from
    the The Fred W Wappat Saw Company which was a division of Simonds saw and steel co in the 1950s
    This site has some pics of the older saws.

    Focusing your life on only one path does nothing but close your mind to the infinite possibilities that surround us.

    Think out side the box for the box is small, cold, dark, and doesn’t have cookies.

    One of a series of a set of gang saws, often used to slice thin slats.

    That is a real possibility.
    Before making custom furniture professionally, my father was a venetian blind manufacturer.
    This blade could go back to about 1935.

    I saw something like that during the last century, whilst in school, we toured a manufacturing plant and they had a setup using several of that sized blades.
