Great find Jeff.  I love old junk, er, pieces of history.  Pretty soon you'll be able to open your own muse-zim.  You really lucked out on the book though, that's probably worth more than the saw.  Paper work is really hard to come by.  I picked up an old star drill from the mines today at the junkyard. Got a few pieces of mining memorbilia now. My favorite is the copper needle and tamper for setting a black powder charge. The tamper has a groove to allow room for the needle while the powder was inserted and the hole tamped with bug dust. The needle was withdrawn and a squib lite that would shoot back to the powder and set off the charge.

You're gonna have to build a bigger house to keep all your JUNQUE. ;D ;D  Don't you love it when someone mis-lists stuff on E-bay?
