Atkins 332 1/2

Post by trailcrew » March 12th, 2011, 7:59 am

This champion tooth saw behaved very poorly when I tried to file it. The raker tips would split when swaged, even if I gave them some licks with a file between hammer strikes to keep the metal from work hardening. Also, when I was setting the cutters, the metal would separate on the plane of the saw as if made of sheets of paper. Had to retire the saw and keep it as a wall hanger.
