Can you explain a little on how, when, and why it was used.  Did the saws use, or just general overuse, cause them to break?

The one you found is probably broke because it was old and rusted.  Here is everything you will ever want to know about them.

Funny this comes up today.  Last night I watched an episode of The Woodwrights Shop on PBS.  He was demonstrating how to use one of those.

I watched that same episode of the Woodwrights Shop and thought the same thing. Roy Underhill did an excellent job explaining how the cross cut saw and the jointer works.

They are on E bay all the time. I tried for years to find a side file and finally made one. That did it , My tool collector friend brought me one and I won one on E bay, now I have 3. Somewhere I have seen a kit advertised for sharpening [log] cross cut saws that included this gage, probably Lehman's non electric.

Great episode. Here is a link.  The folding sawing machine he demonstrates is something I have on my mantle. I also have the catalog/manual he talks about with mine.
