Re: MARSHALL WELLS 5 FOOT BUCKING SAW

This topic has been quiet for a while but was pointed here in looking for information on one-man 4-1/2 foot Marshall Walls bucking saw. Is it Walls or Wells? Was it patterned after the 503 as well or another Simonds model? Did some cleaning the side with the etch last night. The M is not visible on ...

Re: A totaly differnt (Inverse) method of filing

This is an interesting idea. Now that I have 4 additions to our saw "family", this is something I would be interested in hearing the results of cutting. It could significantly save some sharpening time not working for the perfect almond shape on the cutters.

Any results yet?

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

I purchased the 1911 catalog and scanned that page for you. I see there are now folks advertising to sell electronic copies of that catalog for $15. I have collected catalogs to help me identify saw make and model and maybe determine age. Some of the age can be determined by the etch style as seen ...

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

Yes, the PATENT GROUND is very visible. :) From my further cleaning with pumice stone, I can see more of the etch more distinctly, although most is still a bit light. Tonight I do see a faint marking above that "might" be EXTRA, but can't read all of it. I don't see any etch below PENNSYLVANIA. It i...

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

My guess would be a Disston No 2 as seen in the clip shot from the 1911 catalog. Note the etch matches from what I can tell with your picture. The catalog graphic does not show a model number (or name) in the etch. Most of the Disston etches have the name or model number directly under the icon but...

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

:oops: Well I have to admit, I had a couple of things in my original post that were not correct. As I took pictures last night, I discovered a couple of things. First, the saw is 4-1/2 feet in length along the straight back, not 5 feet. The number of cutting teeth at the end is 17 before the first r...

Re: Help with this Disston one-man

Thank you for the suggestion on taking the pictures outside. Hopefully I can do so this evening. The pic I posted was pretty large file, so tried to crop it down to a manageable size to not time-out during the upload.

Help with this Disston one-man

Been a while since I have posted. I recently obtained a couple saws, one of which is a 5 foot Disston one-man with a western style handle. There are holes for what I guess would match a D handle. Unfortunately the previous owner had begun cleaning up in a circular pattern with steel wool. Either tha...

Re: Worn raker gauges.

That's how Dolly teaches raker filing. Not all raker gauges have flat shoes either. Sight down the shoes and often they are tipped one way or the other. When the shoes are so far out of square that you can see it visually, you'll be measurably off from one side to the other. I like holding my raker...
