I have a couple nice, older one-man crosscut saws that I would like to restore. One problem I have is that the “D” handles are broken. Where can I obtain new, or quality used “D” handles that match my broken ones ?? Thanks for your input.

I have made them out of maple just need a drill press , saw to cut slot for the blade and a router with a 3/8 roundover bit .Just trace the old one or one that you have . I made mine to fit my hand . My cousin liked them so I gave them to him

Thanks for the tip re The Crosscut Saw Co. The problem I have with them is that they never answer their phone, nor do thery respond to emails.

Have your say...
