Topic tags/keywords: resource saw

Does anyone out there have a reliable source for quality panel/carpenter saws? While I could go with Lie Nilesen saws, I would like a classic rip and crosscut saw from Disston. I don’t have the time to scour the antique stores. I know a few members rehab and sell planes. Do any of you know of a source for quality handsaws, either members or stores?

Thanks,

Tim

I want to add that Don W and others have helped me with some questions on planes, and Charles Neil has personally helped me with some finishing questions. I truly appreciate the help and advise these and other jocks have provided.

Peace,

Tim

You can contact Chris Black. He’s been known to sell old Disstons that he’s cleaned up and sharpened. I don’t have his email address right here, but I found his twitter account: https://twitter.com/chrislblack

Try Matt Cianci (http://thesawblog.com/) or Ed Lebetkin who runs the store upstairs from Roy Underhill’s school (http://www.woodwrightschool.com/the-tool-store/).

If you have a little patience, there are a lot of very good user Disston and Atkins , user saws sold on ebay. Another FANTASTIC source os the Old Tools List. Get on there and post wanted to buy good user hand saws. They will take very good care of you.
