I found this Disston D-23 saw, this morning, at a yard sale for $5. Some of you that are more familiar with saws than I am, please tell me if I made a good purchase. The pictures are just as i brought the saw home. There is some light ruse and what looks like paint splatters on the blade. The handle could use some oil. The blade is sharp, with no missing teeth.
I am thinking a little mineral spirits might be enough to clean the blade and remove the rust.
Will mineral spirits damage the blade or the etching?
So, what do you think? Did I get a good deal?
