Got this saw at a second hand store in Granville NY, looked pretty rough but i figured a little restoration and it will
shine again.Some poor soul had machine nuts and bolts holding the handle, luckily i had a couple of real saw nuts,
but unfortunately not split nuts like this saw had once born.
Actually i was lucky since i had to make the holes on the saw and handle bigger, wich gave me a great tight fit
for the handle. After cleaning the blade the makers name stamped on the upper blade “Patterson cast steel”,
a little research on the net and to find out that Mr Patterson made saws in California from 1860 to 1863.
How cool is that to bring that back to life!!
Also i found some time to make a blade cover or protector but this saw really needs a good sharpening!!
in the past isent a couple of saws to Cookes sharpening in PA with amazing results but hes no longer in business,
i really need to find a saw sharpener Any suggestions!!!!
