Sometimes you just get lucky. I found this one at a yard sale and was unsure of it’s date of manufacture, but I find out over the course of bringing it back to usable condition. This beauty was in pretty good shape for its age and now it can get back to doing what it was meant to do for another long while.

Like my comment on youtube, you’ve inspired me to “nicen” up a good looking saw I found got a few months ago. Stand by for the documented Evaporust results. :-)

Nicely done! I love seeing WW1-era tools still being used.
