no previous part Part 1 of Stanley Miter Box Restoration series Part 2: Rust be Gone »

I picked up a Stanley Miter Box no. 346 at a swap meet this past weekend for $15. As you can see it is in pretty bad shape. The saw blade is completely rusted, the handle is in good shape. I can see some markings on the blade but cannot make them out. I will be taking the saw apart and coating it with Navel Jelly to remove the rust. I will be leaving the handle as is, I like the look. More to follow.

Wow, even the ‘trigger’ on top of the backsaw is there! Very nice find indeed, congrats!
