On the Vintage Machines list of Sears contractors, 881 is the code for
Hempe.  Even though I can't find a model number on my miter box, I'm
willing to go with the provisional identification as a Hempe.

Does anyone have any info about Hempe?  I had never heard of them until
today.

The part number on the miter box owners manual is 881.36305. The 4 X 22"
Kromedge back saw has a part number, in the repair parts list, as 36188 with no
prefix. Presumably, the prefix is also 881.
