It’s all back together now. Not a lot to say here.

Here are the before and after pics.

I hope the original owner T. Smylie would be pleased.

Very nice restoration Gmath. The saw is put back in use with all its dignity in place, how could T. Smylie not approve?

Thanks guys. I can’t wait til it’s sharpened and I can start using it. Right now it’s 11 tpi xcut but I think I will change it to a rip saw because I already have a 12” saw that’s 14tpi xcut and another 14” saw that has no teeth and around a 2-1/4” deep plate that I think would make a better xcut candidate maybe in the 10-12 tpi range.

Quite a turnaround. Looks like it is ready for service for the next century.

Have your say...
