This is a nice pair of Eclipse Tool Company saws dating to the 1950s.
The first is the super useful No.55 “Frameless” hacksaw, perfect for cutting
sheet wood & metal & especially for large diameter metal or plastic pipes &
similar, where a normal hacksaw frame would get in the way.
It has a toothless carbon tool steel blade the same thickness as the
replaceable saw blade with thumb screw fixings & a tensioning adjustment screw.
The handle is aluminium cast with instructions, blade recommendations & U.K.
patent number 721074.
About 16” or 41cm long. 410g weight. Excellent used condition with no notable
damage. Light surface wear but the screws are unworn & tighten up securely.
The second is the classic Eclipse Pad or Keyhole Saw, ubiquitous in every
Tradeswo/man's toolbox for decades!
Easy change blade fixing with a steel split bolt & thumb screw. The cast
aluminium handle is hollow so the blade can be set long or short.
About 5” or 13cm long. 150g weight. Condition as above.
Supplied with 2 standard 12” 24TPI blades as shown. Please have a good look at
all the photos.
Invaluable Retro tools for home or work use, from a top Sheffield maker. The
perfect gift or just keep them for yourself!
