Buckeye Saw Vise Co. manufactured the Buckeye foot power hammer saw set, a bench-mounted machine, in 1910. The business began about 1905 with the J. B. Foote Foundry Co. of Fredericktown, OH, making Buckeye folding saw vises. Buckeye Saw Vise Co. was organized by 1910, when it first appeared in the Cleveland city directory. It was succeeded in 1917 by Buckeye Manufacturing & Foundry Co., also of Cleveland. The plant was destroyed by fire Aug. 2, 1917, and rebuilt at the same location, 2044-2050 W. 55th St. The office address in 1918 was 9401 Lake Ave. Plant superintendent in 1910 and 1917 was John Wesley Gaede. The Cleveland companies also made hand tools (outside the scope of this site) including planes, plane gauges, chain drills, hollow augers, emery wheel dressers, tool handles, and cabinet scrapers.
