Saw rehab,1 for 2
#11
  
Found a Moving Sale Friday morning, and picked a pair of saws......was aware they were "Gold-plated"  $18 for the pair? Raised  
   
One did look decent enough.....the other was even close...but it will provide parts......a handle and a couple saw nuts
Took the handle off, and found..
   
Out why only two bolts matched up....Saw plate was badly pitted, as well.  Turn my attention to saw #2
Got the bolts removed, and shined up
   
Handle was removed, sanded to remove the flaky, old finish..
   
Set these aside, and worked on getting the plate cleaned up
   
Since that was 5 photos, I'll have to do a "Part 2"

Stay tuned Winkgrin

Ok, I used a 1/4 sheet sander to clean the saw plate Uhoh 
   
Once both sides were cleaned up..
   
I also wiped on a couple coats of Amber shellac onto the handle, and put things back together..
   
I even clocked the screws' slots Cool 
   
This saw is a Disston D-112.. Winkgrin ..26" long, skew backed, 7ppi, crosscut filed saw.    Test cuts? Confused 
   
Does not need sharpened.   Them teeth are VERY sharp Cool 

Might have been worth missing breakfast? Confused Rolleyes Winkgrin

Good score on the saw with a GREAT cleanup after. That one looks like a good user, indeed.

Maybe with the crappy saw plate you can make some good hand scrapers.

Oh, well done!!! That 112 is a fabulous saw. Excellent work on the rehab.

Thank you... Winkgrin .

As for that other saw?  Confused  
   
Cut the 2" off the heel, to remove all those extra holes....added a spare handle that seemed to look better.... Uhoh  
   
Only to find it was cracked.. Upset 

I do have a similar handle..hopefully it isn't cracked.... Rolleyes Plate is black from all that "patina"   and a rub down with 3in1 oil, to stop any more rust.   The wood block?    Saw sits in a kerf the saw had made....makes a nice little display stand Cool 

May at some point try to re-do the nib?    Tooth length is 24", and is a 8ppi crosscut.    Might make it a Panel saw.... Confused

Three decent saws? Confused
   
Maybe?
   
Atkins No. 53...59?
   
Richardson Brothers No. 8
   
Disston D-112.    And.... Uhoh 
   
A Disston D-8 (1953?) on top of an old Disston No. 7 Winkgrin

Might be a decent start..... Confused

Nice set o' saws!

The Atkins, I would bet, is a No. 51; the screw pattern matches that better than it does the 53/58/59 saws.   A real fine saw; my go-to rip saw is a No. 51.   Lots of those old ones lost the nickel-plating on the screws over time.
