I found this small hand saw in my grandpa's workshop and knew I had to save it and bring it back to life. It is the perfect size for my scale of work and would be the first panel saw in my collection. The fact that this is my grandpa's makes it all the more special to me.
Let's get started!!!!
Assess the extent of damage and come up with an idea of what you want to replace and/or restore.
This saw handle is chipped and cracked. It is usable as is but I want to make a new handle and give this saw some new life in my collection.
The saw plate has a patina from years of sitting around, as well as rust and the teeth are dull and not completely uniform. I want to clean the plate so I can find out what kind of saw this is and shape and sharpen the teeth.
