Bonney Jab Saw
« on: May 24, 2011, 07:52:31 AM »
  Heres a little hack saw by Bonney which fell into my clutchs yesterday. Probably not that rare but new to me and I liked its looks. Anybody know anything about its vintage ? Seems too well made too be very modern. May be patented as it says( pat pend.) near Jab Saw  designation. Having trouble getting resized pictures to load will try again later.

Wow, neat...and nasty looking ; P

Is it made of alumnium?
Just a weathered light rust/WD40 mix patina.

  Quite hefty. Handle and tightening nut look die cast. very smooth surface. Conical housing that holds blade holder is stamped "tempered steel"

It is a little hard to see the blade and how it attaches. So, is this designed for sheet rock, and panel board cutting? Very Cool Looking Tool!

 Its evidently for metal cutting. A regular hack saw blade is clamped between two jaws which are tightened by twisting handle. Will try to get closeup of that side but camera batteries low now.
