 Wright Blade Saws 1958-1963 in reply to upred, 11-04-2005 17:00:18  
There were a lot of different saws made under the Wright name. The later Wright saws with convention saw chains were made by Poulan or by Thomas Industries. If you tell me the model number, I'll give you some specs. Wright Blade Saws (like your's) were made in Louisville, KY or Sheboygin, WI. One example is model GS-5020A, made 1960-1962. It has a 7.06 cubic inch reed-valve engine, weighed 25 lbs., had a R.E. Phelon ignition number F-2120-J2. Ignition timing is .105 in. (2.66 mm) before TDC, points are set at .020 in. (0.51 mm), spark-plug gap is .025 in. (0.63 mm),fuel mix is 1/2 pint to 1 gallon = 16:1, etc. Other blade saw models included the GS-4520 with 4.51 cubic inches and 19 lbs. with Tillotson HL-9A carb. and J14J spark plug, model GS-2016 made 1960 with 4 cubic inches or the later model B316 made 1963 also with 4 cubic inches - Carter ND, carb - 20 lbs. - Champion J-18-Y spark-plug, model GS-2520 made 1958-1959 with 4.51 cubic inches - 19 lbs. - Tillotson HL-9A carb - Champion J11J spark-plug, model GS-5020 made 1959-1960 just about the same saw as the previously mentioned GS-5020 except uses a Carter ND carb, model B-520 made 1963 with 7.06 cubic inches and 25 lbs.

If memory serves me, I bought one of those Wright Saws in '54 and cut several wagon loads of hemlock logs before November of '55. Traded it off in the '60s for a P38 Walther WWII 9mm.
It's now worth considerably more than the Wright Saw.

I have a piece of literature from way back when my dad sold them. No date on it. Says Wright Power Saw & Tool Corp is a subsidiary of Thomas Industries, Inc, Louisille, KY. Last I heard of them, they were hooked up with Poulan.

Antique? Different perspectives. I have a lot of tools that I bought in the 50s and 60s and have never considered them to be antiques. I suppose you're right...they're antiques. My bench saw is probably a 40s model...still use it at least once a week...figure it'll be around long after I'm gone.

I think you are right, antique is not the proper term, I think experienced, mature, hardworking, would be a better description. Antique?? from the fifties?? what was I thinking, that makes me and the wife both antiques, both one of a kinds. LOL -- Rick

There are also two models of those saws. I have an early one too and my day purchased it in the late 50's as I was still in high school.

I've got one on the shelf behind the shop that I hope to get running one of these days just for the nostalgia value. I believe it was on here that I heard it, but it seems meat cutters love these saws because they cut like a regular hand held meat saw but are powered. I figured when I ever got around to fixing the old saw up I'd have to do the same thing your doing and go looking for any specs, so if you happen to run up on em anywhere please post them. Good luck.

The fellow that does our farm buchering has a wright saw that he uses to cut beef in half with. It is a good meat saw. I did not think much of them a saw to cut trees with.
