This has been on the back burner for a while. Last spring I replaced the gents handle on an 8” Crown gents saw http://lumberjocks.com/projects/83969 and very soon after I wanted to do the same for a 10” saw. The 8” works great and is still a keeper but I wanted a slightly larger stroke when sawing.

I bought this saw in May and has been knocking around the shop handle less ever since. This morning I fixed that problem. Started this around 7am pst and finished it up just after 11. This is a great inexpensive alternative for anyone looking for a good dovetail saw on a budget.

Cherry with BLO and wax.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks guys. These make decent saws for $25. I might have to try my hand at a Bucks Bros back saw makeover next :D

Beautiful work, and that cherry will just get better looking with age.

Gent saws are very inexpensive. This is a real good idea.

Very nice. What are you using for the screws and nuts? Are they robbed from an old saw that could not be saved?
