Hello I just got an old racine hacksaw with a patent date on the coolant door of 1914, on the saw bow it reads "the racine", and it uses a worm gear to turn the main shaft. Does any one know where I can find any info on it?

You might try the Practical Machinist forum in the antique section.

I did a search on the PM, Antique section, and I typed in Racine saw and two page came up.
One said there were manuals for sale on the "Osarkwoodworkers" forum.
