DISSTON BACK SAW AND MILLER FALLS MITER BOX

Today it's a super cool old Miter Saw.
It has a classic Disston Back Saw with a Miller Falls Miter Box.
This thing is amazing.  It's extremely heavy and cuts like butter.  It's the best miter set up I've ever used.
When they say they don't make them like this anymore... they mean it.  This thing is all cast steel and all precision.
I had a small board I needed cut down and it just sliced through it.
You lock in the angle you want and the saw rises about the board and the natural weight of the saw just slices through it.
Here's the manufactures tag.
The last patent date is 1908.   If you ever find one of these and you like woodworking... buy it.  You'll not find another one.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
