Tool Steel Alloy Spring Temper Location
Backsaw 10700T1 bio photo MH
Spring steel, brass, and wood, 15 3/4" long with 12" blade, signed "NOOLE STANIFORTH & CO. SHEFFIELD" and "DOUBLE REFINED
SPRING WARRANTED" with the brass signed "H. DISSTON & SONS PHILADA".
English-made spring steel has been processed by Henry Disston & Co. into a saw. The marks on this saw are a puzzle because H. Disston
& Sons is a later signature and by this time Disston was producing his own cast and spring steel.
