Saw

Some say its a Disston Knock off, it looks like a Disston… except for the “button” says “Warranty Superior” or something to that effect…

Click the image to see the whole thing… I can never get them the right size…

Nice find Jerry on that medallion page, very interesting. Newbie, what are you going to do with the saw, looks like it needs some jointing and definitely sharpening.

I was going to throw it out…... Until I learned how old it was… and the family history… now I might have it sharpened… how much would sharpening/derusting cost you think?
