I come across some old Disstons every now and then at some of the older abandoned properties I inspect. If I find any more of them, I’ll post them. The old saws look realy nice after restoration, but I prefer then newer saws of today.

I seem to like the older Disstons, some of which are older then I am….

I think the youngest one was from about 1950, or so.

Wow….... They look great Bandit! I really like the finish of the saw on the far right.

Have your say...
