Well I have a hunch "Matey"has probably used more different types of saws than the average man....btw....you picked a really good username.
ETA... okay you brought to my attention a point that I had not realized and you're perfectly justified to think that the type of saw in the
photograph you posted.... was the type of crosscut saw that I was refering to...I had not given thought to the fact that perhaps most people would
type it to Google and they would most likely come away thinking it was that type of saw. Unless a person typed in one man crosscut saw or two man
crosscut saw ..they would most likely be lead to a different type of saw.....the reality is...any type of saw that is made to cut across the grain of
the wood is a crosscut saw.
The other factor that I had not taken into consideration was...I live in Rural Maine....That is a very different culture then the vast majority of
the population.. Most people are not brought up in a rural environment... (I would guess ). And on top of that.. we are probably at least a couple of
generations removed from the time that one and two man cross cut saws were in wide use. And then only people in forested areas would have been exposed
So ...I'm sorry for any misunderstanding created by my lack of definition.and thank you for being that little grain of sand in my shoe to help me
come to this realization. ..
