Old saws with new lives

A couple of recent projects I have been working on.  The first is a very old Spear and Jackson rip saw with a graduated tooth pattern.  This saw is very old with no medallion and split nuts.  No etch and the maker mark stamped out n the blade.  I need to be on the lookout for a donor saw to replace the missing bolt and nut.  The plate is very close to complete but has just a bit of a hook in it.  I touched up the teeth a bit and was able  to rip hard maple scraps quite nicely with it.  I cleaned the blade only lightly on this one to keep the patina more intact.

The second saw is an Atkins panel saw.  This one is only about 20 inches long and hung in his small farm shop when I was a kid.  I remember him using it now and again for building repairs etc.  After his death in 1985, it fell into a poorer state through lack of use.  I did not know it was still around until my dad recently produced it out of storage in the back of a machine shed.  I found some very light etch when I cleaned this saw but not enough to save.  This one is pretty straight, has been filed back to crosscut, waxed and polished.  It will be in my kit for long term.  Glad to have this one.  I have a Disston as well from him that will need more help and perhaps a new handle.  I will tackle that one soon.
