Hi, I recently bought this Disston No.8 and looking at the stamp I am guessing its age is between 1890 – 1906. The nib is still in good order. Clearly it doesn’t have a No.8 handle as at some stage in its life it was fitted with another. The medallion is a Disston replacement type. I am guessing that the handle is from another Disston model and am thinking a D8 panel saw but not 100% sure. Does anyone recognise the handle that is fitted? A few pictures follow.
