I picked up a $2 D8 thumbhole handled saw the other day. Rusty, no big deal. Got some of the sawnuts loose, Medallion just spins along with the Bolt, Brass thingy, might be rough to get out.
The Etch is now starting to show through all that rust ( and some pitting) On the handle side of henry Disston & son’s Keystone There is a couple of lines of script, and Mr. Henry Disston’s “john Hancock”. Common thing? Haven’t seen anything in front of the keystone, as yet.
Working my way (SLOWLY) through the grits, and hitting the rust with a Citrius Mold Cleaner from work. We use that stuff to clean off steel molds.
Bottom of the handle has a chunk missing, about the size of the lower “horn”. Break extends to the area where the handle is leaving the blade. NO lamb’s tongue on the handle. IF I can get the handle off the blade, I can plane the break flat & smooth and add a chunk to fix things up.
Just an old Skew back D8, in need of a little TLC…....
Below the handle, on the etch side of the blade, is a stamped “5-1/2”, PPI,maybe?
