A few years ago I bought a crown gents saw on the cheap (I think between $20-25), it worked ok but I never could get comfortable with this style of handle.
I was able to get the brass back, split nuts and bolts from Wensloff & Sons. The cost for these is around $25 so for less than $50 and a day in the shop I now have what I consider a premium dovetail saw.
I choose the Moulson handle pattern as it had room for the medallion bolt which I filled with ram’s horn. The wood is Cherry finished with BLO.
