New/Old Vintage Handsaws for Summer 2013
: Here's a small but nice assortment of hand and panel saws in rip and crosscut format.. While I have about another half-dozen saws I haven't loaded yet, thought I'd put these up for grabs for now, and load the rest later in the month.

Regardless of pricing, these are all oldies but goodies that will cut true and fast. I fully guarantee any of these saws to arrive on your doorstep razor-sharp, straight, wood treated, fasteners buffed and ready to put to immediate use. Please allow up to 72 hours upon ordering for shipment.

If you don't see what you want, the key thing to remember here is to just shoot me an email if there is a kind of saw with the pitch and size you're looking for. Chances are, I have it. Another thing to consider is that if you purchase a saw from another source (like eBay), just have the seller ship it directly to me for servicing. I'll turn it around within two weeks. Just be sure to keep informed regarding the saw's arrival.

Cheers! ~ Mark

So there's the lineup of my Summer 2013 saws. Again, don't hesitate to contact me if you don't see the kind of configuration above that you want; chances are I have it, and just haven't restored it yet to make it ready for prime time. Cheers ~ Mark

A note on pricing: These are all quality saws I would happily use in my own shop. But Daddy has a Saw Problem—I can only keep so many before SWMBO lowers the boom (I'm sure you're there too, buddy). At any rate, I price saws to recoup my initial investment, and then get an appropriate return on investment for the 3-4 hours I spend restoring them. If you are interested in purchasing any of the above, please shoot me an email.
