Can anyone tell me anything about this saw. It is a Disston Canada K-14. I looked around the Disston Institute website and didn’t see anything about it. The only picture I have of it is this tiny one I found online:

I picked it up for a dollar today.

Looks like a late Disston made after Disston sold to HK Porter in 1956. Porter moved manufacturing from Philly to VA and that was the end of the original disstons. Check out the history section on the Disston Institute site. Certainly worth a buck or two.

Have your say...
