L - 29-1/2",

Some of the markings on the blade are difficult to read. It appears to be "BODENSTEIN & __". Unable to make out any of the markings on the handle.

Following information provided by Bob Roger.

John H. Bodenstein, born 23 Aug. 1823 in Germany, died 1 Oct 1875. He was in business of ice tools in Staatsburg from 1858-1875. After his death his sons John George & Henry ran the business as J. G. Bodenstein & Brother from 1875-1892 and possibly beyond. This is probably the marking on the saw.

 

John George born in Germany 20 June 1850, died 11 July 1935, Henry born circa 1852 in Germany, died 1934. They apparently used "& Bro." and "& Co" interchangeably. Sometime in the 1890s the partnership was dissolved. John George formed the Staatsburg Ice Tool Co. Henry continued in business separately, but what name he worked under is not clear.

Ice Saw Set Tool

Patent 85,941 issued Jan. 19, 1869 to Samuel Leach

image076

image078 image080

L - 12",

A tool used to bend each alternate saw tooth at a slight angle outward for improved cutting.

The patent does not especially state this tool is for ice tools but the tool size indicates it could have easily been used on ice saws.

WW II US AAF, USN, USMC pilot Survival Ice Saw

image005 image152

image041 image204 image213

 

image214

L - 20-1/2"

Blade 14", 18 points, 1.8 TPI. There is a bevel area on the back side of the blade 9.5" long from the end of the blade toward the handle. Teeth very sharp and beveled on both sides/cross cut. The blade is easily changed to either position". To reposition the blade, loosen the wing nut and rotate the small tab 90 degrees then remove the cutting blade with a quarter turn action, then reposition the blade 180 degrees, and reposition the tab and tighten the wing nut to secure.

The two saws below are not ice saws.

Just because a saw has a metal handle does not mean it is an ice saw! They are docking saws. Docking saws were saws used around docks and lumber yards where rough ends of boards were sawed off (docked). Many were made with metal handles because of the rough use and handling. Many were probably used to cut ice also.

Typical Docking Saw

image147

image152 image157

L - 33-1/2",

Metal handle attached with two rivets. Numerous holes along both sides of the handle to reduce weight. Standard "V" type cutting teeth, 0.25" tip-tip (4 tpi). The blade is 6-1/4" wide at the handle and 2-1/2" at the end. The number "3" between the lower rivet and the handle opening for the fingers.

May be a Miners Docking Saw

image161

image165 image167

L - 34-1/2",

Metal handle attached with 2 rivets, 4 holes in sides of handle, hollow handle, Blade width is 6.25" at the handle and 2.5" at the tip. Points sloped at approx 60 degrees, 71 teeth. Probably a miner docking saw, a version for use in mines.  Marking appears to be an "AW" mesh in a circle on the handle between the upper hole and the upper tip. The "AW" might be Albany Saw Works (Albany, NY).

Ice Trays

image004 image006

L = 9-1/8", W = 5", H = 2", Ice Tray. No markings.

Ice Cubers/Cutters

The ice cuber/cutter was used to make ice cubes before the refrigerator ice trays. The objective of the Ice Cuber/Cutter is to cut ice cube shapes in the top of a block of ice. By filling the top of the container with hot water, the "cutter" side down is laid on a block of ice so it would melt down into the ice and form cubes. Then an ice chipper would separate the shaped ice cube from the ice block for use in a drink glass or for some other similar container.
