Before my Grandpa passed, he had gotten into saw sharpening. Last time I was down to visit my Grandma, I got some old saws of his. Question is, I don’t know what some of them are?
The Disston rip saw looks old… looks to be 5ppi I think.
Then I have a EC Atkins crosscut, and a weird saw that is shaped like a backsaw, but with no back.
The only one I’ve cleaned up is the Warranted Superior backsaw. Just briefly with a CLR 50/50 mix and some 00 steel wool.
I also have one taken apart that I didn’t take pics of, with an Etch on the blade… something like Smith & Cohu/Coht/Cohn, New York, Spring Steel… that one is a toolbox sized saw with rounded nose.
