some kind of piers

Postby scotlem » Mon Sep 02, 2013 8:54 pm

Found in my late fathers basement, my sister sent me pictures asking me if I knew what they were for. With out holding them in my hands and seeing how they worked I couldn't even guess

Is there any wording on them anywhere?
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Awsome, Thank you. My father and grandfather would of used them on saws similar to what Larry posted. They also used a belt driven buzz saw off the back of the farmall cub which may also be where they could of used it

Scot:

Makes a lot of sense. That is exactly what they look like - a little more squarish than the saw sets I have but essentially similar. Might have been used in the northern logging camps way back when -- Quebec or Maine maybe?
