Need some information about this item. Is it hand operated or machine? If machine, what kind? How does it work?

That is the homemade ol' Whatchamacallit Thingermabob Saw. It was used to amputate derby race horses that broke a leg thus enableing the owner to keep his prized animal for stud service and also created the beginning of the three legged horse races. After the SPCA got wind of the procedure, it was banned but the races were so popular that they started using children and potato sacks instead. :lol:

Zelph, this is what my brother-in-law told me about your saw, "Bro. it is a one man cross cut saw. Dad has a few of the two man type. you anchor one end to a fallen tree (Pinchers on the end) and the handle goes up and the one man pushes back and forth."

That explanation and the one oops gave sounds like an accurate description of what the saw is for and how it is operated. On the very front end there is a metal piece attached that may be for regulating the depth of the cut.

Thank You everyone for your input. I envision a homesteader having to use one to cut to length logs to be split for fire wood. Having to cook on an open fireplace. Man!!!! do we have it easy or what!
