there is also the possibility that the pointy end was to fit into a wooden handle .

much the same as the tang on a file .

Thanks for that reference Stock. I didn't see it when I put up my link of the stockist's supplies. So it is a saw set and not a measuring gauge as such. I found effectively a confirmation of that from a saw set collector's website. http://members.acmenet.net/~con12a/saw% ... sawset.htm
My one is of the family of saw sets that were known as "wrests". There is a German made one shown there with stops to produce a uniform set in a saw (ie the bend outwards of a saw tooth so as to prevent binding whilst cutting).

This makes some sense now as my late father-in-law had a homemade circular sawbench (and homemade lathe) in his workshop and was one who would have had the same saw blade for years touching up the cutting edges with a file and resetting teeth as required. Something that I don't do, and only a very keen enthusiast would now do. My portable circular saw gets a new blade as required for far less effort (ie greater economy) as required.

yeah nah - not buying it as a saw set sorry. ;)

It must be missing the curved set stop I guess.. otherwise you wouldn't get the same amount of set on each tooth they would all vary.

according to this site, its a part of a set of tools for setting saws made in 1876. Any tool that old is worth keeping simply to preserve history. I have a box of old tools that are useless but interesting enough to keep, and maybe pass on to the next generation . . . if the y can learn how to appreciate HAND tools. . .!
