      Quite interesting. Found a bit more about the Richards saw on the VintageMachinery web site.

      On a site that shows a J.A. Fay & Co. scroll saw from the 1860's states that "John Richards went to work in Cincinnati, for J.A. Fay Co. around 1866, and several years later moved to Philadelphia, to manufacture woodworking machinery under the name, Richards, London & Kelley. He also is the author of an 1872 book of great value to students of the history of wood working machinery – A Treatise on The Construction and Operation of Wood-Working Machines. This book is available online at Google books, if you have broadband (I don’t), and well worth the download time."

      J. A. Richards went out of business in 2006.

          Thanks for asking Rolf....each day I seem to feel better. I am spending about 3 -4 hours in the shop a day, broken between AM & PM. The Trend helmet helps allot. And you are correct, shipping that heavy saw would cost a ton of $$ to Hawaii. I'll keep working on my Hegners I think

            He did the Baltimore run in October and finished in a little over 10 minutes. Of course it’s a very hilly course here and flat in San Antonio. Very proud of all of them.
