History Of Use
George DeWitt 1929 - 1987. George moved to Canada from the Netherlands in 1948. He worked as a farmer, tree faller, and mink rancher. The last 25 years of his life was spent working as a Building Supervisor of the Federal Building and served as a president and vice-president of the Museum Society. His keen interests were wood carving and fossil collecting. This bow saw was used for many of George's wood works. The bow saw can easily be taken apart for storage & transport. The finer the blade, the easier it is to cut a curved line. The blade is stretched across one end of the frame and can be adjusted by twisting the handle. To tighten the blade, there is a rod and turn screw.
