For many of us the Stanley No. 42X Saw Set is the crown jewels of saw sets. No others set compare in ease of use and the durability Stanly built into the No. 42X. However despite their durability the 2 springs inside wear out over time making use and consistent setting do to the extra force required.
Keep in mind most of the 42X’s are sold through the vintage market and the sell has never used or tested it.
Over the last year I’ve hunted through tons of local hardware stores looking for a replacement before contacting a local US spring manufacture (Murphy & Read Spring Manufacturing Co) to making replacement springs based on testing of known good No. 42X’s I have.
The sale includes the two replacement springs and straightforward installation instructions.
