I use pliers-type sets for regular
handsaws but this little set is far superior for use on saws
that are 15 point and up.
This one is struck with a small
hammer and the spring-loaded head can be rotated to put four
different strikers in place, each of a different size.
On the embossed brass plate riveted
to the front, in raised letters, is, "J. TOLL PATENTEE BORO
LONDON". This is an extremely well made tool that was well cared
for over the years.
Fortunately there is no rust
pitting on the strikers or the little anvil face. I have yet to
find any information on Mr. Toll and his years of operation. If
anyone knows more about him and his operation, please share the
This is a view of the front of the saw-set.
The embossed plate is attached to the front of
the set with two rivets.
In this photo you can see the striker head.
The saw rest can be extended out about 2 1/2 inches.
