When I’m done, this saw will be worth at least $5.00! Well … that’s what I thought when I found this garage sale refugee.
I caught a glimpse of this saw sitting in a box on the floor while I was looking at some other stuff. I thought “What a beater!” and moved on.
I went back for a second look because I liked the shape of the handle. (I thought the drywall screw added a nice touch).

For the rehab, I’ll remove the rust mechanically. I’ve experimented with electrolysis and citric acid on old rusty throw away saws and am unhappy with the results. So it’s scrape, sand, and steel wool for this saw — with particular care taken around the etch.
