Mark: Just received my saws. They cut great! Thanks for your help. One concern though—they take such a small amount of effort to cut a board now, I may gain weight. . . .

Mark, Just wanted to let you know that the saw arrived safe and sound, had a chance to give a work out sunday.In a nut shell I could not be happier!!!!! I will be adding to my account later next week on a deposit for a 12" Dovetail saw. Keep up the good work.

Hi Mark, I would like to let you know that I am very impressed with the vintage x-cutter! Thanks for the quick shipping, it got here on Saturday and I have begun to make a traditional set of saw benches, which this saw is very useful for! It's amazing the condition the saw is in after so many years and that it is still in working order, to me this is what hand tools are all about, longevity and continuous usefulness if well cared for. Thanks again!

New/Old Vintage Handsaws for Summer 2014: Here's a really 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.
Note: International customers will pay an additional shipping surcharge, between $15-$20 USD, depending on location.
Cheers! ~ Mark

So there's the lineup of my Summer 201 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.
