Funny you should ask about these. I was using my dad’s old Disston’s this week. They cut fast enough for me * was cutting pine 4×4’s. As long as I’m not cutting a lot of something, I normally just use old hand tools instead of the power tools. Gives me a good workout.

About the pictures, a lot of them are cut off. I can only see a portion of the saw. So, you might want to fix those (checked in 2 browsers).

I say as long as they are majorly bent and seem functional (without broken handles), there’s no harm in restoring them and even using them occasionally.
