Re: Screw in log

Ouch! That's brutal looking. As much as it pains a person post some pics of the teeth out of curiosity. I seen a saw once that cut a 30 caliber bullet lengthwise. Surprisingly the saw took it like a champ and finished the season out before going into the saw shop. But that is nowhere as hard as a sc...

Re: Unknown Simonds Model NO. 324?. 6' Bucking Lance Tooth

Good thing I didn't have money on it :D . Sure looked like Atkins ends, but when a saw has been reworked, gummed, it can be tough. The notches are just personal identifying marks for ownership. You see it all the time on old tools. When I'm refurbing old tools I'm kind of surprised when I don't see ...

Re: Unknown Simonds Model. 6' Bucking Lance Tooth

Not a Simonds. That is definitely an Atkins. The ends say that, it looks like it has been gummed and the perforations cut out. That thin of a gauge saw where usually perforated to stiffen up the teeth. Possible a 225

Re: Saw aggressiveness

I'll throw out a question that hasn't been asked yet, but I see is a flaw in filing the third bevel in. How do you keep the saw in "tune" The tips of the teeth will be different lengths. Once you file off the flat spot from jointing, that tooth is now shorter and out of tune. It now does less work a...

Re: Tooth Pattern Assistance

The saw isn't as wore out as it may seem. It's a pulp or ribbon saw. They were made for the tree plantations that made plywood or chipboard. The saws were made narrow to get the wedge in sooner. A lot of these pulp saws had very high quality steel and were taper or crescent ground. Look through the ...

Re: This is a new one to me: Oak Leaf

Nope both my hunches were wrong. I dug through the saw rack and the only saw I found that has the raker ending at the heel with the more pointed end was a Keystone 954 but only in the 36 inch length. I'll keep digging through my saws. I love these tough saw ids. Any chance we can get a full saw pict...

Re: LeChef

Sorry I should have made that clearer, I was not suggesting a Curtis saw. Mine has a large C, about an inch big, and was curious if it was factory or personal touch. I suspected factory as it is still in the wood sheath and doesn't appear used but just wondering. The only reason I say Atkins 24 is I...

Re: This is a new one to me: Oak Leaf

If in doubt, check it for the boxed C :D . Is there a chance that you can post a picture of the heel of the saw. I've got a hunch just need visual confirmation. Thanks David
