  1. Saw was found at a garage sale a while back.....most of the teeth on one edge were worn off...$2.... Finally got it back from the Sharpening Service over in Piqua, OH....between the 2 saws I had dropped off a few weeks ago...Price for the 2 saws to be sharpened? $10... So, what is so different about the Bishop No. 10 adjustable saw? Depending on which set of teeth you want to use...the blade can be slid out, flipped over. Instead of the 9ppi Rip teeth, you can set up the 11ppi cross cut teeth.....the "bar" can be set anywhere on the blade,by sliding the blad
  2. in a bucket with a bunch of other saws and miscellaneous junk, 'er stuff ...pulled them out...no price...something told me to "save" them from a terrible fate. At check-out $4.28 for both counting Indiana's 7% cut. I know very little about (cordless) hand-saws but have picked up a few the past 3/4 years if the price seems right. I hate to see someone ruin them with a flower box scene painted on the plate. I got the surprise of my life when I looked closer at the pictures I took a few days ago I think they'll clean up pretty decent when I get a round tuit. I'm going to try Evap-O-R
  3. Earlier this year, picked a $1 handsaw at a garage sale.... Not much to look at? Disston USA, 11ppi, hmmm Scraped away some of the rust....D-8? Checked Disstonian Institute....saw was from 1939-1947 era....so Searched for a Sharpening Service....as them tiny teeth are too small for me to see each tooth, let alone file them.. A place in Piqua, OH., called Chucks Sharpening Service....took this saw over to him....about 10 days later ( chainsaw season around here...) This came back home with me. $10 to set and sharpen....cuts like a new
  4. Had a little fun, a nice break from my chair build and finally did something to benefit the shop, I just happened on a simple hand saw till by Lee Valley and on a whim I decided, what the heck, I have some scrap, and a little time, and a few saws that are currently hanging on nails on my wall. They need a home, and I liked the idea that it sits on french cleats and I can remove it and have it nearby where I am working, if needed, I seriously doubt it, my shop is small enough that a little 10 walk to the wall where the till is hanging, aint gonna kill me. Anyway, I had some scrap pr
  5. Stumbled upon this tonight...worth the look...once in a lifetime goldmine find for NIB vintage tools. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/tls/d/vintage-craftsman-and-other/6655669969.html
  6. Back at the end of April of this year, went to an estate Auction. Won a bundle of saws.....one was a bit strange looking... Finally got around to rehabbing it a bit.....Filed the teeth as rip. Got a couple pieces of Cherry to make a blank for a handle.. Metal frame was wire wheeled until it was shiny. Red handle holds the file I used to sharpen the blade. let this mess sit over night Clamps were removed, sander set up. Shaped to fit my hands. . Drilled a couple holes, and installed a pair of saw bolts. Steel frame, merits steel bolts, righ

    Saw Bolt

    I picked up a saw a few weeks back and the blade was filthy (plus a slight bend which i believe i can fix). I managed to get four of the five bolts out without a hitch, but the fifth one? No such luck. As i turned the "screw" side, the other side turned right along with it. Since the "flat" side was below the surface - nothing to grab. I finally got aggravated and smacked it with a hammer and punch (more like an oversized drift). What i got out was a real surprise. No threads inside or out. Now i want to smack whomever put that in there. Thankfully no massive damage to the
  8. Boss wanted to check out a few yard sales, have Lunch out, visit Wall E World.....Ok.. On the way back home from such things...made one more stop at a yard sale....nose was itching.... Table had a metal B&D saw...sitting ON four hand saws.....Didn't need the circular saw...two of the handsaws weren't really worth picking up....#3 had a $20 price tag! OUCH! However...#4? First glance..looked like a Disston D-8....until I looked a bit closer at the handle.. 26" long, 10 ppi, skew back. Covertop handle. And CARVED.....a D-100.
  9. More of a step by step post, here. Took a little over an hour, to get from "Rust Bucket" to almost like new.... Had an Atkins handsaw, from the auction..wasn't the cleanest one of the bunch.. The big medallion said it was made by Atkins, over in Indy, IN.... Nickel plating was flaking off a bit, or was worn off...tool to remove these.. These then went to the wire wheel on my grinder, for a quick polishing. The next step was to remove the handle.. Fresh sand paper on the palm sander, to down down the rough, worn finish...set this aside..
  10. While researching a few recent purchases, I discovered this site. It has several other links as well as pdf. catalog files. Very interesting and comprehensive site.
  11. Son had chopped down a Norway (pest) Maple from out of the Lilac bush. Found a straight section and tried a couple handsaws to cut it out. Yeah, Cardio! Brought the "victim" in to the house Still shaking from the sawerying? On to the Dungeon we go ( add the Igor laugh, here) Clamped into the Monarch Vise After roughing down three sides.Time to bring out some old planes Yep, steel frog and all. Tried a couple other ones, too Sargent #414c made a few passes, then a little larger one took a tu
  12. Nice article discussing the steps for sharpening a handsaw- http://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/editors-blog/how-to-sharpen-saw-blades
  13. Awhile back, picked a Butcher's saw for a dollar bill.....finally got around to rehabbing it up... The bolts were, at one time, nickle plated.....shined up, they became Brass. Guess the plating wasn't all that good? The slots weren't all wallered out, was hard to find a screwdriver skinny enough. Handle has been sanded back to bare wood, then a coat of my Famous ( or, Infamous) Witch's Brew was applied. Frame was wire wheeled back to shiny. Wing nut was removed, cleaned up, and oiled the threads. Out in front,I am not sure if this is a pin, a broken off t
  14. Got the dovetails all planed smooth, even added a bit of round over. Final sanding is done. One coat of that SMELLY BLO is on. Brush on, wipe off. Soooo, drum roll, if you please.... Full side view. Splay is @ 22-1/2 degrees. DTs were spaced by eyeball-Mk1 has a solid oak floor! Note that the handle does not go all the way to the floor. Allows some tools to slide under. Speaking of tools.. That be a full length handsaw, sitting very compfy in there, You can almost see the slight bit of round over on the corner. Plane and a sander did most of that. Over all length is 33-1/2",
  15. Detail of the corner joint, showing the slight round-overs. That happens to be a full length handsaw sitting very comfortably beside the handle.
  16. Well, my back is giving me a bit of trouble.....decided to try a bit of sawdust making, until the back decides otherwise.... Had the lines already laid out. I just used a 1/2" dovetail bit to set the bevel gauge at the right angle.. On the way down to the Dungeon Shop, happen to see a little Panel saw, decided to see how it would cut. Saw is a 10 ppi "ClearCut" brand, from a company in Cleveland,OH. A little wax on the plate, and away we go.. this thing cuts fast! Even faster if I use the entire saw. I tried to at least split the lines, with maybe a bit to the waste side... A 10
  17. Right before a fire so rudely interrupted things around here, I had just finished up the handsaw refurbs. There are six handsaws, all bright and shiny, stacked up, awaiting a place to go. Biggest thing now is to find a way to take a few GOOD photos of the crowd. Two panel saws, and four full length ones. need to find a way to show them off, I guess. Two No.7 with nibs, one skew back D8 and one skew back unknown. The panel saws are 20" long. One has an Atkins "Sheffield" medallion on board, the other??? handles are even cleaned up. Still one to go, but it needs some hardware
  18. I worked over a few handtools tonight. Was a bit wierd down there, though. I would move a bit, then weight while me head caught up. First, I cleaned off a Disston saw. Rust was trying to take hold. Saw is "special", and says so right on the plate, no less. "National Hardware Special" from 1954. Finally, something YOUNGER than me in the shop. Not sure IF you can read the etch in the photo It has DISSTON in big block letters, no less. Checked out the larger planes tonight, and found them needing some sharpening, too. First to feel the stones was a Small Jointer pla
  19. Spent a whole $4 on a pair of handsaws. They seemed to have some good bones to them. Under all that rust, that is Just a bit of rust to clean up. The handles did look good, though They were Disston USA D-8s. Brass hardware, too. Got the two apart, shined the brass up. Cleaned and refinished the crack-free handles. Then a lot of sanding to clean the plates. Found both had an "8" stamped in the heel. 8ppi, and they were both crosscuts. In fact, they were the exact same model!. One might have been re-sharpened a few more times, though Notice a diff
