Hey guy, I just bought this saw on Kijiji for 80 dollars. Right now im trying to figure out if it was really worth 80 dollars. It measures 28” long with 3 tpi on the body and 5 tpi on the nose, first time ive seen a saw like this. Can anyone tell me more about this saw?

I believe the info is in there somewhere as I recall the name of your saw.
I’d say you did well Vince.

Nice vintage saw! Def one that would be nice in the collection. 80 is the top price in my opinion but either way good job!

As you can see the saw was previously restored (although by the looks of it a long time ago) but still needs a little love. I’ve read alot of forums on saw restoration but none of them really go in depth about removing the brass screws or how to put them back in again, would someone be able to point me in the right direction. Also whoever previously restored this saw did a sloppy job on putting the brass screws back in.

I’m far from an expert on rehabbing old saws, but I remember a guy telling me that you need to label the screws and make sure they go back in the same spot. You need a “split nut” screwdriver. You can buy them at Tools For Working Wood, Lie Nielsen, etc. A lot of guys make their own by grinding down a spade bit.
