« Part 1: Disston D-8 handle - initial sanding Part 2 of Saw and Handplane restoration series no next part

I cleaned the sawblade by using a scraper for the grime and surface rust. Then using Naval Jelly and a stiff nylon bristle brush removed the rust. After that it was coated with WD-40 and sanded starting with 220 and progressing through 0000 steel wool.

The medallions and screws were cleaned with Barkeepers Friend and polished.

Im pretty happy on how it turned out.

the handle came out nice. It’s a saw I’ve been looking for.

very nice, I am interested in getting into hand saws they seem to be as wide in variety as hand planes. looks like a saw worth holding on.
