Well, here’s what I got for my $20 bill…...a 60 1/2…a Starrett divider…and a schoolboy.

Thanks guys, the 118 looks neat next to the earlier 118 that has the number on the toe, this one has the number on the left side of the body. Thanks for your comments.

Nice gets. The term “schoolboy” is a new one for me.

Those 118s are really useful in a tool tote. And zero risk as they’re indestructible. Put a good edge on the blade and go. No harm in running the sole back and forth over some 800 grit wet or dry either. Both of the steels I have got that treatment, and were better off as a result.

Great buys!

It’s been a while since I’ve found anything worth shouting about but last Saturday was a pretty good day.
I picked up two 40’s, an early and a later model, $40 and $35.

Two #40 in one day? That’s a good day

Not a Flea market as such, middle of nowhere antique shop?
$30 for 604 Bedrock (Apr.2.95) and $15 for the Saw. Canadian dollars:)
After quick clean.

A very rusty project but the price was right….$1 I will use
a razor blade and then electrolysis. Looking to gain some
rehab experience and if I end up with a nice little saw….great.
If not, I still will have gained some experience.

If you research saw restoration, you’ll find the recommendations from those that do it a lot to use the razor blade, then sand using strokes with the length of the blade.

Electrolysis will not give good results on a saw.

Hiya Don, using your suggestion and it’s working pretty good. That saw was in such bad shape
that I started with 180 with a quick hit and then went to 220 and am seeing good results. I still have a way to go before I’ll call it good but it’s looking better and better. I’ll put a picture of my results in the saw thread or maybe the restoration before and after thread?
