A drywall saw with a wooden handle and a metal blade that was used by Teresa Summerskill and it was donated by Laura Burden. On the left side of the handle has the writing "Benchmark - 1062 - 218" engraved and the blade has "bomho - Made In Brazil" also written on the left. Although the possible brand name of "bomho" has no indications of company history, the other brand name of "Benchmark" is actually distributed from a company named Home Hardware. It is a privately held business and was found in Canada (St. Jacobs, Ontario) in the year of 1964 by Walter Hachborn. It is also owned by many other related private businesses across Canada. Beside the engraved name in the handle of Benchmark has the Home Hardware logo of two lower cased letters of "h" side by side but facing opposite directions. For donor biography see description for 021.10.01.
