A couple months ago I found a few of old saws-
I havent had the time to commit to a detailed “project” lately, so Ive been piddling with returning these geezers back to work horses. (With much inspiration from you lumberjocks!). While waiting on the drill press frame to get braised, Ive started on this saw (far right in above picture). It needs a good cleaning , and a new handle. The set is actually fairly decent, and some might say sharp (?)......some.
Anywho, first coated the blade with naval jelly. and sent the hardware to soak in disolver as well.
Then cut the basic shape of the handle from some wormy cherry.
Next cut the slot for the blade. In hind-sight it would have been easier to drill for the hardware first….
And what better saw to use for than this. He needs a new handle as well, but I have some QS oak in mind for that.
Thats it for now…hope to finish it up soon.
