    Small Gloat

    I was talking handsaws and sharpening at the Onrust worksite this summer and a guy I have known casually for a few years overheard me say I was looking for a saw vise. I have one from my FIL but is one really enough ? He said he had one he had never used that I could have. He has been dragging it around in his car for a few months and we finally were in the same place at the same time and I came home with this. It's in pretty good shape except for the clamp.

    Very nice Don!

    I have a few saws that need some TLC I rescued a small Disston D8 this summer that had this wonderful painting on it. A cute little country scene. The etch was obvious on the other side and the medalion was clear. The woman had no idea what I was talking about when I showed her the nice Disston etch. I got it for $4. I scraped all the paint off and cleaned and sharpened it and it is a sweet user ! Guess I should have taken some pictures. Gotta watch for those hidden gems

    Wondering if hand saws are as dangerous as planes when it comes to budgets...

    Nice one Don. Man you must have a ton of patience to remedy saws. I will stick to planes for the moment.
    cheers

    My hand saws stay sharp because I can't cut more than a half inch without veering off the line. So I just hang them back up.
