This machine is designed for practical service in the workshops of carpenters and builders, cabinet makers and other wood workers. We warrant it to be well made, of good material and workmanship, and, with reasonable practice, to saw at the following rates: pine, 3 inches thick, 1 foot per minute; 1 inch thick, 4 feet per minute; walnut, 3 inches thick, 1/2 foot per minute; 1 inch thick, 2 feet per minute; and other woods and thicknesses at proportional rates.
The ordinary rate of speed when sawing is from 800 to 1200 strokes per minute. The saw leaves the work as smooth as it is possible for any saw to do, and can be taken out and replaced in an instant for inside work.
From the 1885 catalog of W.F. & John Barnes Co., Rockford, Il.
