    New Kid on the block

    Hi everybody.....

    Just signed up yesterday and just want to introduce myself and say hi.

    My primary interest and tool activities is handsaws. I sharpen and recondition all kinds of handsaws and backsaws. I like all kinds of tools, but handsaws has become my thing in recent years. I'm retired and do this work as a hobby but do charge for my services.

    I'll try to post a picture of my most recent backsaw remodel... Here I have remodeled a 1950,s Disston No.4 to make it resemble an older style No.4.




    Thanks for looking,
    Marv

    Welcome to the Family, Marv!

    Nice looking saws, but where's the motor? Yep, I'm a power tool junkie!

    Hi Bill,

    I do both motorized and hand power tools. Whatever gets the job done fastest. At my age, I don't have time to do it all the slow way.

    Hi Jonathan,

    In time I'll be showing you guys so much of my shop and sharpening stuff, you'll beg me to stop.

    Here's a picture of my saw filing vise... It has 28" jaws.

    Marv, I have always liked your ACME vise ever since I first saw it over at WoodNet. Someday, I hope to stumble across one myself. Welcome.
