Wow, talk about "like new, old stock"!

Nice find!
...Naval Aviators, that had balz made of brass and the size of bowling balls, getting shot off the deck at night, in heavy seas, hoping that when they leave the deck that the ship is pointed towards the sky and not the water.

I just love the slow reveal of the paper covering, real tool porn.

Ok, enough drama. I did find this saw this weekend, but not in the wild. Actually there was a 26" full saw that matched it, also in the box, which a friend of mine bought. Here's the story: Carl Bilderback ("I like shiny"), a well-know saw collector, is selling off most of his thirty-year horde of some of the best and rarest saws, and other tools, as well. I had been to his home in Indiana earlier this year, and then he appeared at a MWTCA meeting in Campton Hills, IL this past weekend. Carl is ill, and I believe it is important to him that his tools reside with people who will respect them the way he has during his years of collecting. It also meant a lot to me to own something of Carl's.

I asked him if he found most of his tools "in the wild", or did he buy/trade them with other collectors. He answered that many were obtained through his relationships with other collectors in MWTCA. I used to haunt the flea markets and antiques stores looking for old tools. Now I just spend part of one day, once a year, going to a tool meet. The selection of quality old tools is just unmatched at these events, and the prices are always reasonable.

I didn't realize Carl was ill

Always liked talking to him when I lived up there.
