Old Disston felling saw

Post by Aguineapig » December 6th, 2011, 3:18 pm

I picked this saw up back in October for 10 bucks. Had Disston climax pattern handles (one was rusted and no good), I subsequently put on these western handles. No idea what model this is, its pretty old from what I can tell.

There was this,

As well as the typical disston logo (sorry for the poor picture quality on these).

Any insight would be great to hear, thanks to you all for this great forum.

Edit; sorry, the photos were not sized correctly. I will fix shortly.

I have one of those saws myself, its a Diston Triumph Toledo #598.

yours looks better than mine, someone filed the "perforations" through (on mine) and did a terrible job of it. What gets me about that, is there was no need to do it, as the teeth are still long. What is interesting about this saw are the one sided rakers on the last four sets of teeth. I believe this is also a taper ground saw.

that was a good find for 10 bucks!!!
