Saw Sharpening

I get repeated requests for a source to get vintage saws sharpened. I have just found a sharpening service that has been in business for 100+ years in the sharpening and tool making trade. My cost is $10.00 per saw and if you buy any saw from me I can have it sharpened at this price.

Crosscut vs Rip

I get inquiries frequently asking the difference between Crosscut and Ripsaws. Here is an illustration that should help.

Saws Wanted

I am always looking to buy saws by J. Flint  St. Catharines or Rochester NY  etch  also saws by R. H. Smith with St.Catharines or successor to J. Flint logos.

A A Atkins

This is a saw with a western New York history. Made by Atkins for Elderfield & Hartshorn Hardware of Niagara Falls NY.  Nice clean saw recently sharpened. A decent etch and a good++ tote. A fantastic user or a great collector.

Disston D-8 Newer saw

A late D-8 24in CC saw with 11 TPI

Unmarked Tenon Saw

Although the maker didn't mark this it is sweet. The blade measures 10"in length and 1 1/2"under the spline.

Steel back warranted superior

No makers name but it carries a warranted superior medallion. In very good condition. It measures 14"in length and 3"under the spline.

Just a nice little gents dovetail saw.

Disston 12in steelback

Nice early Disston 12" backsaw set at 14 tpi... The blade is good 3" under the spine.The blade is stained but not pitted. Minor dental work would help.

Jackson Saw Works

Eventually to become part of the Disston empire.  A nice steel back at 12" in length. In good+ condition. Could use a sharpening.

This is a great vintage hacksaw from Star Tool Co. Star Tool Co. Middletown Conn. 1867-83 this hacksaw has a cast frame with 3 stars embossed on the upper frame.


Unmarked Pad Saw

A fine unmarked pad saw possibly made of ash. Good brass fittings and a good blade. A nice addition to any collection or a great piece for the chest. The saw blade packs into the handle.


Smaller size saw vise

Nice vise in good++ condition. Maker unknown would be a great user to sharpen smaller saws.
