Restoring An Old Hand Saw (Hand Tool Woodworking)

Restoring An Old Hand Saw (Hand Tool Woodworking)

I recently picked up this Disston D8 hand saw to replace the rip saw I have been using in the woodshop for the last couple years. The saw was in pretty rough shape so in this video, I show how I cleaned it up and sharpened it. My goal was to keep the character and patina of this 100+ year old hand saw but still make it an excellent every day user.

Here is the paste wax I used to protect the saw from rusting in the future (Affiliate) https://amzn.to/2YHNoAo

For some content with more detailed instructions on sharpening hand saws, these videos from Paul Sellers and Lie Nielsen Toolworks really helped me out when i first started sharpening my own https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA5Di... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F72FB...
