Last week at our local auction I found something that I just couldent pass up. Saws, saws and more saws!
I found one disston #16, three Disston D-95, one Atkins, one Richardson Brothers #7 and several other Disstons that I dont have numbers for yet. I also got a old stanley miter box and the Disston saw that came with it. The total cost to me was 10$
some of the Disstons
The D-95s
back saw
Richardson Brothers #7
There are more saws than I have shown and when I get them cleaned up I may show them later.
I hope that you enjoyed the pics.

Thanks and I agree with you. the Richardson Bros #7 was produced in the 1890s.

My dad had one of the Stanley Miter saws. I think I got it for him at an auction or a garage sale. I had completely forgotten about that one. It was a great saw and did fantastic jobs before the days of the power miter saw.

Great find.

how are you going to clean these? Going to give electrolysis a shot? I’ve been having fun playing with that.

Hi Bryan;

Now all you need is some wood!

Looks like you have the same attraction to saws that I have with carving tools and chisels.

Oh well, beats some of the other addictions available.

Have fun;

That was a great find. My Dad used to rave about Disston handsaws and I think the same. I found one buried in the garden in some leaves when I moved here and although a bit rusty, it cleaned up OK and I use it often. I do wonder about its history. Since finding that I’ve taken more of an interest in gardening. Bob.

Want your money back?

I didn’t think so.
