I’m trying to repair an old two-man saw that belong to my grandfather. It’s missing a handle and mounting hardware. I had a friend make me a new handle. Does anyone know where I can find mounting hardware?

May need to take the other handle and hardware to a local blacksmith and see what they can come up with. I’m pretty sure most handles are straight rod with the end looped to catch the blade with the other end threaded to tighten. Most of those are originally made by smiths so a modern smith may be the way to go. GOOD LUCK! BTKS
