This saw is for sale at my local Emmaus; it is in good condition though slightly wormed.
Let me know by private message if interested.

Hi,

A picture of same would go a long way to helping a person decide whether or not to pursue purchase of this item.

Does it look like this ?

What length ? What width ? Does it come apart ?

I did not have a camera with me and do not possess a smartphone, but the saw is very similar to the one in your pic though with the 'patina of age'.
