I have over 20 of these old saws. Does anybody know were a Lumberjock could find a market for them ?
They are all shapes, and sizes. I just took some new pictures of them.

Here’s some of them.

Well, that all depends on what you’re asking for them. I would guess, Ebay would be one of the most popular ways to sell them. A local flee market or antiques store that deals in tools may be another option. I’ve always wanted one of the two man saws, but don’t have the knowledge and tools to sharpen them or, after two heart surgery’s the health to use one, either. I couldn’t see my sixteen year old son jumping at the bit to saw with one after using my chainsaw, either. Let me know what you’ve got and how much, I still want one(why, I don’t know).

When I get around to it, I’ll get some images. Some of them are a bit rusty, & some are ready to go. I figured it’s about time I do something with them. I had them hanging on a wall in my garage, but I need the wall space. I collected them from old barns,& garages before demolition.

I’ve been looking for two decent saws to use for friendly two-man saw competitions in our small Utah town. I tried it a couple of years ago at a July 4th town festival and it was very popular. Unfortunately, the saws I used were really old, chipped, broken handles, etc. so I’d really like to replace them with something better. I’d like two that are the same size and condition. Do you have anything that might work?

I’ll have to go through my pile. Some of them kind of rusty, but I think they can be cleaned up. Like I told oscorner, I have to get some images taken. I’ve been goofing off, I have get someone to beat me with one of them saws to get me going. There are a couple of the long curved, 6’ x 4” wide that aren’t to bad. I’ll get some pics as soon as I can..

oscorner, & Kelly.
I looked through the pile, & took pictures of 7 of them. Out of over 20 saws, there are no two alike. There must have been hundreds of saw makers, that had their own idea what a saw should be made. The rust on these saws has not penetrated, it’s just surface rust. I’ll take some more pics. of the other saws tomorrow. I had to come in, & thaw out, it’s – 10 degrees. I guess I have to find some 5/4 wood, & make some handles. Most ofthem are cracked, but they have their sex screws.

I don’t really know what the going price is, on these old saws. I’ll have to check on Ebay.
I’m finally learning about posting links on Lumberjocks.
you can look at larger images here. .

just looking at your old saws, Dick. they visually look pretty tough but your probably right that they would clean up into usable shape – at least some of them. I also have a bunch and have the filing equipment to keep them up. Used them quite a bit growing up on the farm. I have one 6 foot ribbon saw (4” wide) that I won in a sawing contest in 1951. My partner and I sawed through a 24 inch hard maple log in 59 seconds. Can’t do it today. sharpening them isn’t that hard just takes time.

I see them at flea markets etcetera for $40 to $100 depending on their condition.

I haven’t the slightest idea of what it would cost to ship a saw to Australia.

I finally listed one of them on Craigslist last week. I plan on listing one at a time if they happen to sell.

Oh My Oh My ; Do those pics bring back memories ! When I was about 10 my dad interduced me
to one end of a two man cross cut. He cut and sold fire wood. We cut down trees and cut
to fire wood length . I learned early on that if I did my part and he did his we got on fine but ,
If I got lazy and tried to just ride along , I soon found that he could shove the saw back ar me
and send me butt first a flying. After a couple time one learns to be a teem in a hurry. I think it would be fun to try it now days !! Prob. would finesh me off though . Thanks for posti the pics. Rally have no idea of price.

Thanks for nostalgic story Ageingwood!
I guess anyone who grew up in our time, has had the same kind of fun. <(;0)#

I just posted the whole bunch of them on Craigslist. We’ll see what happens.
