In the past year I purchased two old saws. I cut a lot of firewood with my dad when I was a kid on a saw identical to the red one. Someone stole that one a number of years ago.
The green one came with a 32” and 36” blade and the red one came with a 32” blade.
They’ve been sitting in my garage for awhile and I decided it’s time to get these restored.
Only real fabrication work needed is to replace the bottom angle iron that rests on the ground. I’m not a welder but hoping someone local is willing to do a small job.
I plan to disassemble them, strip them, clean them up and repaint. Guess I need to buy and restore an old Allis Chalmers WD 45 like my dad has so I can test them out.
I know they don’t meet any modern safety standards, but I couldn’t stand the thought of these pieces of history ending up in a scrap pile.
Bought this one from a guy who’s father purchased new in the 1930’s
Second I bought, will likely end up being given to my dad because I know he will get some use out of it.
