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.

LOL…That one is not mine, I’m keeping it. I paid a lot less than that too. Good find!

Maybe cuz I’m from Philly and cuz I seem to be using more hand tools I have kept an eye out for one of these saws since your post and found one at a yard sale here for $10. I just like the looks of it but wasn’t about to spend $85 on one. I soaked it in Evaporust and stripped and finished the handle. It appears to have been either lightly used or sharpened. According to the Disstonian Institute mine is from circa 1910 also. Seems like it’s a 5TPI.

Nice find Andy. Yes, I used the Disstonian Institute to date my saw also. What a great resourse.
