I found these tenon saws at estate sale, they were covered with rust, he wanted 4$ each. I told him it was to much so he said how about a 1$ each. For that price I’d take a chance.
I used wood magazine ( Lucas Peters Removing Rust with Electrolysis tank) after removing the handles the saws soaked for about 6 hours. When they came out rush free but tarnished ( black). Using wet 400 grit sand paper and cleaned them up. They still have some spots on them but clean enough to use. I was going to refinish the handles but the weather ( cold, cold) prevented me from finishing them. The bigger saw cuts very well both need sharping. I plan on using Paul Sellers video on sharping ( very good info) both saws!
For 2$ and half a days work it was worth it & I enjoyed it.
