Logging Saws


   
 

Welch & Griffiths Saw Manufacturers - Boston, MA


 
     
     

 

In 1830 Mr. Charles Griffiths began the manufacture of saws at Boston, soon after associating with himself Mr. William Welch.  Prior to this there were but two or three saw manufactories in the country, nearly all our saws being imported.  

 

Messrs. Welch and Griffiths turned their attention to the manufacture of circular saws, and, in the face of many obstacles, succeeded in establishing a national reputation for their goods, although their failure had been predicted. From time to time the firm made many improvements in methods of manufacture, especially in the mode of grinding both surfaces of a saw at once.
