An antique saw setting and swaging hammer from the 1920s or 1930s (probably). Used to align and bend saw teeth, this hammer was made by the Symnonds Mfg. Co. (reference: http://www.hammermuseum.org/hammer-highlight-saw-setting-and-swaging-hammer). It has a lathe turned wood handle and a tooth bending slot and hammer end as well as a metal ferrule. It is unmarked and it is in excellent used condition with no detractive chips, cracks, dents, bends, corrosion, damage or repairs. Condition details are noted, and items have signs of use as expected.
Tracked parcel to the U.S. starts at $16 and expedited parcel within Canada starts at $13 (tracking/loss insurance included). Rates vary by destination, etc.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, we are required to opt for a single postal rate, which may not be applicable to your location, or if you require a more expensive option. If your quote is significantly different, we will send you an invoice for the remainder or refund the difference if above our applicable rate to you. A telephone number from the buyer is required immediately.
PAYMENT: We accept Etsy Payments, VISA and MASTERCARD directly (processed through our store credit card processor - your credit card protection remains in effect regardless of how payment is sent), cheques/checks, money orders and funds transfers. Canadian buyers can also pay by Interac e-transfer. We DO NOT accept PayPal directly. Items are sent 1-2 days after cleared payment.
Rates can vary by distance, and there is usually more than one option. We are happy to send items together to save whenever possible, and if our rate remains the same, so does yours. We pack well. Items paid directly to us with a credit card will be sent to confirmed addresses only. All of our prices are in $US.
Please call or email us at our store for a direct charge card payment. Applicable tax will be added to Canadian purchases. Please see our policies for further details. Items are held at the post office for buyer security, and courier options require the purchaser's signature. Items not picked up and returned to us are considered a forced return. We are happy to arrange for an independent gemological appraisal for buyers in advance of the purchase by buyer request and at buyer's cost. All sales are final.
We pack with great care, using bubble wrap and packing foam and cardboard. Canada Post is completely trackable and all items are insured for loss. However, Canada Post does not offer insurance for breakage for items such as china or glass, so chinaand glass items are not insurable for damage with Canada Post. Customers can either us their own 3rd party insurance, or purchase breakage insurance through a service such as Parcel Pro, who is a 3rd party insurer for collectibles and jewellery (www.parcelpro.com). We are not financially responsible for items that are insurable with CanadaPost for damage that arrive damaged where the recipient fails to provide proof that the items was damaged in shipping. We are also not finacially responsible for breakable items that are not insured for damage by a third party insurer that covers this.
In the rare occurrence of something arriving damaged, the damaged item and all packing materials/packaging must be completely photographed, and we may ask for additional photographs, which you must provide. The damaged item and undamaged parts must also be packed up and returned to us immediately. We will email you with further details, which must be followed for any damage claim.
PLEASE ASK US FOR THE APPLICABLE SHIPPING OPTIONS FOR YOUR ITEM. Canada Post is often more expensive than US post and our quotes include only a nominal packing fee (usually around $1 for supplies, sometimes a bit more for the rare large and complex packing job). Depending on the size/weight, value and payment method for your item, some of these options will not be available or may be required. Please ask us for quotes. Here are the shipping options:
Canadian Shipping: Expedited post or Xpresspost-air. Rates vary by distance, tracked and insured for loss. Canada post doesnot offer insurance for breakable items such as china andglass.
All Canada Post shipping to the US is air post now.

Items over 100 years old will usually be declared as antique and many countries do not assess duties and taxes on such items, but some do - you may want to check with your post office or Customs for how it works where you are.

Additional return information
We try to describe details on our items as thoroughly as possible. We examine our pieces carefully and we do note all details noticeably affecting condition (chips, cracks, scratches, wear to paint & trim, crazing, fading, staining, restorations and repairs, dirty fabric - anything that constitutes damage). We offer pictures and/or descriptions of any trademarks and any reference details we have been able to find (country of origin, manufacturer, etc). If we have no expertise or information about the item we will say so in the description. We are happy to answer any further relevant questions about the piece. We try to offer good clear pictures of our items, and sometimes have additional views available. Our items are antique or vintage, so minor reasonable signs of use or wear must be expected - on the odd occasion when it appears to be in truly unused condition, we will say so.
Some item returns will be considered, but we list items here to sell, so sales should be considered final and items should be considered non-returnable. There are items in which no return option will be considered. There are no returns of precious and semi precious metal and gemstone items, in which the metals are tested and the stones are checked by a gemologist or on a recognized stone tester before they are listed by us, unless we indicate more than one gem stone possibility in the listing. Items with more than one stone possibility cannot be returned for that reason. Some items have appraisals. Appraisal will be mailed separately for buyer security. No returns of costume jewellery. Mechanical items are sold on an as-is basis, even as if listed as working, as we usually do not have a way of determining or guaranteeing their actual maintenance or usage history, which is rarely available to us. We can only guess at that based on appearance which is not a guarantee of any future working condition. There are no returns accepted for these items.
Any items we do agree to accept the return of will not include the shipping rates amounts either way. We must agree that the item is the same item and in the same condition we sent it when returned, or buyer agrees to forfeit the refund or any part of the refund to restore item. Any returns must follow our return protocol, or buyer agrees to pay any fees caused by an improper return. Any returns are subject to a re-stocking fee. Thank you!
Other items: Reasonable return requests will always be considered, but we offer a very limited timeline for this. There are times when we will not consider return of an item, so any returns are done on a case-by-case basis, they are not automatic. Please inquire before purchasing if this is a consideration.
Buyer is financially responsible for all duties/Customs fees from the purchase and importation.
We do have a few conditions for returns. The request for return must be made within 1 business day of your receiving the item/day of receipt, no exceptions. Item must be in the mail after our agreement of return in no later than three business days from receiving the item. Please note that the refund is for the purchase price only, not shipping, unless we have made a serious error and we agree. Shipping fees either way are not refunded. Refunds will not be issued until the item is returned to us and and checked - we must agree that the item has been returned in the exact original unaltered condition in which it was shipped to you. The parcel must be labelled as we indicate in our email agreeing to the return. Refunds will be issued promptly upon our receipt of and examination of the item with a minor restocking fee deducted, but not until then.
Secure Delivery: We ship items by tracked packet or expedited parcel. Items will be held at the post office for the customer to pick up, and any courier options will require the purchaser signature. Our postal option also includes direct notifications to the customer by Canada Post or courier service through the Etsy provided email contact option, so the customer agrees that they have been properly informed of delivery, and have accepted delivery if either the Etsy or postal or courier system confirms it, regardless of requested delivery address or pick-up time. We are not responsible for customer claims that they have not received this information due to any customer action that may cause the Etsy contact system to be imprecise.
If the customer fails to pick up their Etsy order item for any reason, the parcel will be considered to be a forced return. Such returns will be subject to a minimum 25 per cent re-stocking fee, and will have no shipping refund. If the itemr eturned is verified by us as not being the item we sent, or altered in any way, there will be no refund. If we are charged an importation fee due to a return, that will also be deducted from any refund. This policy applies to any Etsy purchase, even if the item is considered returnable.
We firmly believe that our customers have an absolute right to privacy. We also do not discuss either to whom an item was sold nor the purchase price paid after the fact.
