Description:
This saw was pictured in an ad from Northampton Pegging Machine Co. in the December 1875 Manufacturing & Builder; the January 1873 issue had an article on the miter box. The April 1876 issued carried a notice of the name and location change; Langdon had gone into partnership with Millers Falls Co. and they had set up a new company to make the miter box. Apparently Langdon Mitre-Box Co. and Millers Falls Co. shared employees. The December 1876 issue of Manufacturer & Builder. carried an ad from the new company's products: "Made in four sizes, and supplied with Disston & Son's Saws. See also the patent reissue, RE5,037, and the improved versions in patents 151,139 and 220,732. Thanks to Jeff Burks for providing the manufacturer information and the Manufacturer & Builder references.
