I picked up this old, rusted, bent, beat up hand saw a few days ago. The plan is to make it my new dove tail saw. I am a novice to restoring saws and I’m pretty lousy at cutting dove tails. I’m still going to spend most of my time turning things on the lathe, so nether of those skills are going to improve rapidly. But when I need a break from the lathe this is what I’ll be doing. The pin on the handle has “Warranted Superior” on it with a picture of a lion and unicorn under a crown. With a bit of research I can say I’m pretty sure this saw was made in Britton and is around 100 years old. The first thing I’m going to do is remove the handle (This one is to badly broken to do anything with)then I’ll clean off all the rust. I’ll try to straighten the blade (it’s got a bend in it but it’s not kinked) then make a new handle. I’m going to take my time, do a lot of research and try my best to bring life back into this old saw. With all that being said this is going to be fun.
-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
