Like I needed some more project saws in my till….

I just can’t pass up a good yard sale handsaw for a mere buck, though.

This one’s a D8 7 point with a Superior Warranted button. Very common, but it will get re-furbed, sharpened, and used.

Also in the haul was a brand new Stanley coping saw, and a small set of needle files which I lack in my tool kit.

A whopping $4.50 for the lot! Gotta love those yard sales.

WOOT! I could use those files myself. It’s great to get something to enjoy refurbishing and using for almost nothing.

It’s my favorite time of the year…yard sales!
Now I just need to get back in gear with woodworking projects.

Sometimes, diamonds in the rough at yard/garage sales.
