The Circular Saw - a Guide for Filers, Sawyers and Woodworkers -
This little book is the natural
successor to the "Simonds Guide for Filers and Sawyers" which
has been in such demand that the supply is completely exhausted.
In preparing a new edition it
seemed wise to remodel the work and add much new material.
The Circular Saw is, therefore, taken by itself and treated in
its relation both to the saw mill and woodworking shop.
The convenient size and flexible cover are kept so that the book
may be carried in the pocket. The headings are made
prominent so that any subject may be turned to quickly for
reference. At the same time the discussion proceeds in an
orderly way so that a beginner may gain a clear idea of the
development, manufacture, use, and care of the circular saw.
A companion work will follow
immediately on "The Band Saw." A third volume will deal
with "Machine Knives." Other books will appear until the
line of Simonds Saw Steel Products is described in full.
Many of the illustrations in these books have been assembled on
blueprint charts which can be tacked upon the wall of the filing
room. Copies of these charts will be sent on request. The
company has also outlined its welfare, educational, and
efficiency work. Information on these subjects will be
gladly furnished. The Simonds Manufacturing Company was
established in 1832; incorporated in 1868. During its long
and successful history it has accumulated large resources of
knowledge in the manufacture and use of saws and knives.
Without presuming to be a final
authority, the company is eager to aid the users of its tools to
get the finest possible results in the woodworking field.
Believing that Simonds Saw Steel Products are the best, the
company would have all who employ them get the largest possible
returns. The Great War is making large demands upon lumber
men and woodworkers. The reconstruction period following
the war will call for redoubled efforts. It is a patriotic
duty to manufacture good tools and make them work to the utmost.
The manufacturer, the filer, the sawyer, and the woodworker are
in partnership to win the war and then to rebuild civilization.
Any corrections in the facts
described in this book or suggestions as to its improvement will
be welcomed. The company would appreciate a word from any
who find it helpful.
