I will keep interested folks informed via this thread. I will post the prices here too. Prior to placing the order I will PM everyone who has expressed interest on this thread the info.

I will tell you all now that I'm not doing shipping quotes for 50 people. I will be using flat rate boxes and I will tell you how much it is based on what you want / what box it fits into.

Thomas Flinn has been making saws for over 200 yrs and they make some fine ones at that.

These are what they consider their Academic / Introduction level saws. As shown in the links I posted they have simple beech handles, no medallion, and rather plane hardware but they do still have brass spines.

I have not asked directly but to the best of my knowledge the steel plates they use on their premium saws and this line are the same. That said, if you can get past the less than romantic appearance they should be decent saws to use.

We'll see!

Well since you only use hand tools, who better than you to know a quality saw.

For any of you that may be newish to hand tools the tenon saws are a general duty joinery saw. They come as either a cc or rip.

For most of you the 12" rip and cc would be a good set to have. That's what I'm ordering for each bench at the school - as far as tenon saws go.

Depending on the order limits I would still like a cc tenon and a dovetail but the dovetail takes priority.

I don't intend to limit the order - it may be broken into two separate orders though.

My friend, please put my name on the list of people who are interested, but unsure about jumping in until the cost is known.

I am interested in both the dovetail and tenon saws.

Thanks

I'm definitely interested, but I'll need to know the cost, and whether I'm employed. Right now I'm on a temp job: if it turns permanent, buying myself a nice saw is reasonable. If it doesn't, I'll need to save as much as possible.

I'll keep an eye on the thread, and hopefully I'll know what's going on with my job before you need a final answer.

The saws arrived today! I haven't opened the box yet and it's going to be several days until I have a chance to play with them but I will keep y'all posted on the results!

I won't know an exact price until I review them and get a quote on shipping which includes the number ya'll will want.

So it's somewhat of a circular thing - I really can't help that.

Can everyone involved please give me a more exact reply than 'I want a couple' and tell me more specifically what you are interested in?

That will help me to get the prices nailed down.

Thanks!

My lovely wife brought the box over to me at the FD when she came to visit. I will try to find some time between current projects to play with them. The first order of biz will be to clean the damn varnish off of them. all future orders will have to be oiled not dipped or its no dice.

I will say this - the brass backs are substantial and provide quite a bit of heft, I'm quite pleased with that.
