    Hi all,

    On 18th of May I attended the History month event held by the South Australian Historical Tools Association Inc.
    It was their tenth anniversary as a club and they had a very good array of tools on display from their members plus the club's tools.
    One of the displays that impressed me was a graduated set of back saws, all by Disston with the exception of one from Atkins.
    They ranged in size from an 8" dovetail saw up to a 30" mitre box saw.

    Interesting lineup, I wouldn't have guessed that the size graduations would be so linear.

    Thanks for posting.
