A few pretty cool saws (I think) - DaveParkis - 07-30-2015

Grabbed a few saws yesterday and I thought I'd share. All the plates are nice and straight and a couple are even sharp. First up is a nice little rip saw labeled "Carpenters Choice No. 39". The medallion is a Disston, so I'm guessing they made it fro a store here in Albany since the plate states "made for A.H.I. Co., Albany, NY"


Then there was this "The Majestic" by Sargent Tool Co.




A really nice D-8, 12 ppi, but a little smaller than most of the D-8's I've seen.




Then there was this beast. Its a Joseph Tyzack & Son (singular) and its 4ppi. as you can see though, it needs a medallion and a nut






I have someone who might have the medallion and split nut, but if you've got one or know where I can get them, please let me know.

That Majestic etch is terrific! I've heard of them, but have never seen a Sargent-made saw.

I hope others will chime in, but I was told that Sargent didn't make saws and had these made for their brand.

So my post wasn't good enough, huh?

You want actual useful information!

In Heckel's book there is an addendum in which he notes the various makers of tools Sargent sold. According to this Sargent handsaws were made by Atkins.
