Description from the Journal of the Franklin Institute Vol. 6 1830 pgs. 29-30.

For an improvement in the common Saw Setter; Ira Hatch, Westford, Chittenden county, Vermont, October 12.

This is a new edition of the saw-set, but we cannot say an improved one, as it is precisely like such as have been before patented. The set is made in the common way; it has upon its handle, or shank, a sliding piece, tightened by a screw, with a gauge screw tapped into it, which, when the proper set has been given to the tooth, will bear patented, although they stand against the side of the saw. What is claimed as new, is, " the gauge to regulate the bevel required to the teeth in setting the saw."

There are some half dozen patent saw sets operating upon this principle, but we believe that workmen in general prefer to set their saws by the old saw set, or with a punch. Were saws soft, or perfectly equal in their texture from end to end, these patent saw sets would answer a good purpose; but this, according to our experience, is rarely the case, and consequently the eye and the hand become the best guides.
