If I get you right you are saying that the saw in the second picture has undergone plastic surgery and has been transformed into the picture shown by default?

A very nice job!!! You’re up for a new tv show: “Pimp my saw” :-)

Very nice job ! I’m guessing the straight handle was mounted on a tang ?

I guess the bolt is under that “medal plate” (sorry, don’t know what that would be in English) on the handle, right?
