This one does anyways. It is a old Disston 2 man.

I found it in the attic of a abandoned house that I recovered for the bank. It should look good up on the wall.

for dovetails you’ll need to sharpen it with a finer cut. :-)

We’ll want a blog on the re-sharpen!

Will you be cutting the dovetails by yourself or will you have a helper? ;-|

Haha, just curious how large the dovetails you’re cutting are. :-)

Building a Morovian house are you? Dovetailed log frame.

Awesome post. I have been looking for a good two man saw for a while.

The owner who was giving up the house actually left it for me. I usually hate recovering properties, but this guy made things a breeze. We had a few conversations about his pictures of old time logging in Maine. I had to inspect the property before I gave him his check….. “cash for keys”. I found this in the attic and reminded him that he forgot it. He said: No I didnt, and its yours if ya want it.

Have your say...
