Rehabbing Saws

E-mail Print

Sometimes a vintage back saw is simply not as one hopes when it arrives from the seller or when found under the rubbish at a garage sale.

Blades can be replaced, handles can be remade, and backs straightened so all is not lost. We will be having a series of articles on those three different topics in the coming weeks. Of course, the blade replacement article will explore a few different options for toothing the blade.

Vintage back saws can exude a certain charm that demands to be brought back to a usable state. Our first article will be on replacing a severely pitted blade on a saw made by the Kenyon-Sykes company.

This saw is too lovely to relegate to some drawer just because the blade makes it unusable. So we will simply remove the old blade and make a new one.
