I bought this off another OWWM member, but he never posated it here so I will, as this beautiful saw deserves mention. This Model J came from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Technology and Trade School, a high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was founded in 1906 as Boys Technology and Trade School, and changed its name to Milwaukee Trade & Technical High School in 1976, after women were admitted. The school’s name was changed to its present one in 2002 following a donation by Jane Pettit. Local residents refer to it simply as “Tech.” Tech specializes in Construction, Communications and Manufacturing. I am happy to be the latest custodian.
