It doesn't have the writing in the casting. Maybe early? Also the aluminum frame has been cut down, maybe to fit in someone's pocket? It's functional, because someone was using it. Since that lower edge is gone, you will need to think a bit about keeping it straight to the saw blade, G........... $90.00

  37. EARLY DISSTON JOINTER AND RAKER GAUGE, with a wrest on one side of the frame, and an adjustable spider on the other. 7 1/2 inches overall. For sharpening crosscut saws. I think this is the earliest, from the 1870s, and the rarest. The frame is composed of two keystone logos on each side.
    The filing plate should be wider, with a small slot. It was apparently cut down by the owner, probably to avoid banging the teeth of the saw in the small slot. Otherwise, it is in very nice condition. This is an early and rare gauge.
