  • I Can Finally See All My Saws In One Place

    Well, most of them anyway, most of my handsaws have a new home now. I had some stored away because I didn't have any place to properly store them and others were split between the garage and the basement shop. I use them more in the basement shop so I moved them all there and built a simple saw till to house them within easy reach.

    Why do I have 5 handsaws? Because a couple were handed down to me but before that happened I had bought a few on my own. One of the Disston saws I found at an estate sale back in 2019 and for $25 I couldn't pass it up. So there is some duplication but not exactly because the TPI count on most of them differs and there are 2 rip and 3 crosscut saws. They are not worth much as collectors though, any one of them is less than $100 but they are better than most new handsaws you can buy today.

    Two are old Craftsman saws I bought in the 70s. The others are Disston D23 series saws from the 40s and 50s I believe from the little research I have done.
    The backsaw on the left is a Craftsman also from the 70s that I bought.

    I also keep my tennon saws on this tool board. They are held in place by some strong magnets.
