Just an update..remember that rusty mitre box I was going to just toss?   Well....
Might have to keep it around a while.  patent  date is from 1961...back when I was about 8 years old.....saw is also OEM to the mitre box....not too bad,,,for just a $1....

Very good, I'd say.  For $1.

Steve, when you go to that great workbench in the sky, the missus is going to have one heck of a yard sale!

Hopefully enough to pay the Undertaker.

Decided that the Mitre Box needed to lose that warped old plank...
But there was a couple problems to that...
Someone had nailed the legs to the plank....must have been doing trim on the house...Roofing nails?
Old Estwing claw hammer MIGHT have driven the nails in,,,but, not nearly enough room to get the claw in there, and yank the nails back out.  A "Cat's Paw" won't work, either ( can't find mine, anyway..)leaves one other Carpenter's tool to use...
No...this is NOT just for Blacksmiths....Carpenter's Pincers....Have a couple smaller ones down iN the shop...this pair just happened to be still upstairs...Pulling nails seems to be it's "strong suit"...maybe a minute per nail...
Nothing to it.   Which means I can NOW look under the hood of this "machine".....
Not much to it.   Need to evict the spiders.   The 3 lobed thingy?    To set the angle you want to cut, loosen it a bit...set the angle, and tighten it back down...need to haul this to the shop ( next time I am allowed to go) and clean off the rust, oil the moving parts a bit....maybe a spot of black paint where needed....and maybe a new deck?   Then I can rehab the WS backsaw that came with it ( OEM, at that!).....handle needs shaped better( too boxy...)Plate will get a good clean up...."etch" was probably a silk-screen, no great loss.....Teeth still seem sharp.   $1 Miterbox to travel to any Job Site.   trim a door or window?  Hmmm.
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that
