I hit a few flee markets today and I’ve been looking for a dovetail saw. On the way I stopped at a barn sale. Besides a box of misc plane irons for $5, I picked up this sweet little gem for $8. With my internet research it looks like a Disston 70. Can anybody confirm and tell me what it may be worth? I plane to sharpen it, clean it up a bit and use it.

That looks like a very nice little saw to me. Hopefully, one of the saw experts will chime in.

It’s worth dovetails once you get it cleaned up.

Nice saw.

Don that is a great little find for $8. It will clean up a treat.
