    Can anyone identify this saw? No markings or name anywhere. Very heavy duty, cast iron base. 29" saw blade. Made for precision work. Any value to this old equipment? Too nice to heave onto the junk pile.

    It's a mitre box saw. It's for cutting exact angle cuts, 30's 45's, etc. This one could be for steel pipe depending what type of blade is in it.

    Its a carpenters old type miter box. It has a slightly different type of blade on yours from the normal box type blade on most I have seen. They have no value today that I know of. To big and heavy for any collector that I know. Some people like to collect the old type block planes and other misc. pieces that are small and easy to hang on wall to display. I say keep it. It will outlast you and you never know what the future holds in the way of antiques in the future. Looks to be in very nice shape as well. Break-em all. Jeff

    If you don't want it take it to your local Carpenters Union Hall, they will take it and put it on display.

    My guess is it's for making picture frames where precision is imperative.

    Mine uses a back saw and is all machined cast iron.

    Keep it, it works without electricity.

    It was introduced to be a cheap saw compaired to Miller Falls and Stanley at the time . Cost was about 1/2 of the good saws . Problem was the replacement blades could not be found and the one on saw was harden.

    It is an STM saw. Very dangerous, not OSHA approved. At today's food prices, it is also very expensive to run. "STM" means "send to me."
