    Like the old Disston handsaw I showed awhile back, neither of these may actually be so much "old" as just simply severely "abused". :-( Both were found in fact laying around *outside* of the cleanout house, thus their crusty-rusty blades at least.

    As seen, they're both 18-19" long or so. The one on top has a quite aggressive fixed blade. (maybe a 'tree limb trimming' saw originally?) Note how someone once got creative replacing one of its handle bolts with a bent-over roofing nail. <sigh>

    The bottom one has a wingnut type clamp suggesting it might have first been a 'miter saw' with interchangeable blades, the one remaining in it having fine teeth.

    I haven't done anything to them beyond brushing the residual dirt/chunks off of their surfaces, and if either one has any name or maker's info on it I haven't been able to discern it yet thru the rust.

      Rusty steel screws are a sure sign of saws WW2 or later.

      THANKS SO MUCH to yougottahavestuff, flashlarue, fortapache, Irishcollector., hotairfan, Brunswick, vetraio50, iggy, & Trey for leaving your <love it>s, plus fun comments! No doubt flash that these aren't 'antique' by any means, the 'pruning saw' still retains enough sharpness that I bet I *could* trim tree branches with it, ifn's there was also enough of a handle left to hold onto it with...? ;-) :-)
