I bought this two sided "sign" and i'm trying to determine if this was from a local sawmill or simply a piece of "art".
Blade measures approximately 22" across.
Is there some way to identify the location of this business (if it existed at all) based on the CH9 exchange ?
Googling Edward Sharrot came up with nothing (at least for me).
Thank you in advance for your help.
I'm guessing the blade is steel (a magnet will confirm if it sticks). I can see every other tooth is bent over which tells me the blade is for "cross cutting" wood. Too dull to use or sharpen, painted blue with lettering to advertise his business. "Americana" value $10. to $20. Maybe more...see Note.
Note: Brand-new 22" blades cost $400.00 USD and up.
Once again you are a valuable source of information.
Stay safe !
Regarding the phone number, convert the CH to 24 add 9-7285 and you have today's number, 249-7285. Now ask Google and you will find 10+ pages of numbers with their Area Codes. Link is Page 1; you can figure it out now... https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&sxsrf=ALeKk0...
Regarding value, use paint remover, steel wool, have blade professionally sharpened and list it "used, sharpened $200." If you advertise it you'll need to know the number of teeth. Count 1/4th of them then multiply by 4. Check for broken teeth before spending any money.
Stay safe and live long!
U2 Tom and once again, thank you for your valuable insights.
