Wards Master Quality Miter Box by Jason Stamper

1 of 3  


I was poking around one of my favorite junk shops a few years ago, and to my delight stumbled upon on old miter box.


It was rusty and missing quite a few parts, but it had a nice saw with it and good bones. For some unknown reason I did not take a picture of it when I got it, but it was rough!

I cleaned all the rust off, repainted the main castings, and replaced as many parts as I could find.

Since I was less than pleased with my power miter saw, I jumped at this one and happily took it home.

The plate on it says Wards Master, which was a house brand for Montgomery Wards. This particular tool was most likely made by Stanley for them and was originally patented in 1934.
