We respectfully call the attention of Circular
m _ Saw Mill manufacturers, Ciroul r Sw Mill
_ owner-;, and Manufacturers of Lumber, to
_tbe iireat improvements we hive recently in-
_ troduced into our establishment for the man-
ufacturing of our Circular Saws.—
Having purchased from Mr.Wm.William Clem-
son hia patent machine for Grinding Saws
,which i far Biiperior to any machine in
use, and the only one ever invented that
Awill grind a saw perfectly even in thick-
ness, we warrant oars^ws to run truer, and
to he superior iu temper, to my other Sawa
made. We can grind Circohtr Shws, from 6
to 72 inches in diameter, with the greatest
accuracy and p' eeision.^
The impossibility of grind-
ing a Saw without leaving
it uneven in thickness, has
always been ackuowledg-
practical saw-ma-
kers. This causes the saw
to expand as soon as it
becomes slightly heated
in working. When this
takes place, the saw loses
its stiffness, and will not cut in a direct Iine.
We warrant our saws to be free from these
defects ; they are made perfectly even in
thickness, or gradually increase in thickness
from the edge to the centre, as may be de-
sired. As there are no thick or thin places,
the friction on the surface of our saws is
uniform, condequently they will rem in stiff
and true ; will require less set and less pow
er, and are not so liable to become untrue, as
other saws. We warrant our saws to cut
smoother, run truer, and save more lumber,
than any other Circular Saws manufactu-
