My dad left some handsaws among his tools. One is a Atkins 7tpi, 26” blade, but appears to have been last set up as a crosscut, not a rip. The blade and handle are in reasonable shape, with no major kinks and only a few cracks in the wood.
HOWEVER, the teeth are really uneven—filed way too much from one side— and would need major work to restore them. I have never changed the profile of the teeth before.
I have no idea if I should keep this, spend the time to fix it up, or just move on. All opinions are welcome—the saw is free to a good home :)
