Having spent an hour and twenty minutes typing the story behind the refurb LJ created an error and I lost all my work. Thanks LJ!!

Too bad on the lost comments. Saw looks great.

Based on the end result-the story was likely just as good. Saw turned out great & awesome handle.

BIG improvement in how the handle looks. Bet it makes a huge difference in operation. Nice work!

Man, that was an ugly handle! Thanks for sharing your restoration. That is a beautiful saw.

I think so many people throw away so many good tools now. A great save and another tool which will get plenty of use

Looks great, bet it works good too.

I finally started typing anything more than a brief comment into Word. It saves a draft every few minutes. Copy and paste ti LJ.

If you hit the reload button quick when you lose it on LJ it will bring it back if you are quick and lucky. It might reload your blank page too ;-(
