I went for months trying to find a saw set and couldn't find any at a reasonable price. Forget about ebay. Then I find six sets in one day at a reasonable price, so I bought them all and figured I'd research the best one later. Any recommendations? I also have a Disston set which I haven't identified yet pictured in the upper right below.Hmmm... You opening a school?
Much appreciated offer, buddy. I'll never turn down tool or volunteer donations but to be honest I'm not in any dire need for them. I don't see me doing saw sharpening classes anytime in the next 10 yrs, lol.Not yet, have them all in a box under the coffee table to look up when the wifey starts her next Glee marathon. I'd be honored to donate a few sets to your school if you'd like.
They were actually nicely bundled, I cut them apart for the picture. They were cheap and my boxes don't move so they should be fine.Files just banging around against one another, or loose in a toolbox, are soon no good anymore. Lee Valley sells a nice little case for saw files that's not too many dollars.
I'm not sure! I bought it because it was complete an $2.00. Same story of how I came to own so many saw sets. The handle have a valley cast into them that is similar to my hargrave spokeshave. No markings on it other than H. Titlow stamped on the blade. See a lot if tools here with owners stamps and I took that to be one.What make is the top spokeshave..?
Sorry, have to ask..
No worries! Please let me know if you learn anything. I started an id thread for it but no one responded. I think they are pretty attractive spoke shaves. More ornate than the Stanley's.Thanks,
Did not mean to bump your thread, got one just like it on the web yesterday.
Anyways, that was a nice haul on the saw sets. I like looking at the various designs of the different makers.
Have not had any luck around here at yard sale, most have baby clothes, and I have out grown that era.
Wife says , I am a kid when I am around tools, though....:icon_smile:
