Question Help IDing Family Hand Downs

I have a bunch of hand saws and a few other tools given to me in old saw boxes by both sides of my family. I need help IDing the saws and their use.

I plan on using them all in my shop but some have some bends and some look like they need to be cleaned up but don't want to ruin any!

Thanks!

Those are some really nice saws, some are pretty old and others kinda old. A lot of folk would love to have some of those.

Could you take a shot of that plane with it laying on it's side and a shot of the bottom? Any markings on it?

The hand plane is the metal part of a Stanley hybrid wood/metal plane without the wooden base.



Nice saws!

Nice saws!
Any idea what to do about getting a proper wooden base?

BigJim I wouldn't dream of selling any of these as I would feel so much pride keeping them in the family and using them still.

That said, any ideas on what I should do to bring them back to full use? Also any good resources on what each saw is used for (cuts, etc)?

Generally, if there are 8 or more teeth per inch, it is usually a crosscut saw. Less teeth are usually rip saws and will have different teeth geometry than a crosscut saw. The length of those saws is more to do with personal preference though a saw 26" or longer is called a hand saw while one less is a panel saw. There are resources to help with making new handles for the ones that are badly damaged or you may be able to find replacements on ebay. You can make another body for the plane parts.


Here are a couple of resources:
