I am hoping to REALLY start my hand tool cabinet as my next project. Before I do, I have work to be done. First up, refurbishing tools that will be used to make the tool cabinet. I’ll try to use the hand tools as a primary. Saying that, hand saws will be used. Here is my current collection I have acquired:
The 3 Veritas saws (dovetail, tenons) are good to go. The Stanley, Disston, and Japanese saws need help.
Lots of rust on the Disston so electrolysis to the rescue:
And this weekend, I am starting on a saw vice nearly identical to Brit's Saw Vice
And now, of course… I am keeping eye out for Disston hand saws all the time :)
