I found this Saw in old garden during gathering firewood and took it home to restore, also it's known as Thwart Saw. The uniqueness of this restoration is that i restored steel part without sand paper, and used only my hands. I did my best to restore this beautiful Saw and make it perfect.
All the Restoration process is below:
This antique 2 man Crosscut Saw designed for cutting wood perpendicular to (across) the wood grain. They may be small or large, for fine work like woodworking or log bucking. At first Blade need to be sanded, it was very hard since to remove rust i used Pit sand. Grinding of metal lasted all day, that's the hardest sanding and rust removal ever done by me. It is made of spring steel and is very flexible.
Here is one tricky moment, to make it able to cut wood need to make saw tooth set with special pliers, this is necessary to avoid getting stuck in the wood during work, Rip and crosscut teeth are perfect at 60 degree angles. Also it was Sharpened with triangle file.
Beech wood is very good and durable and it is nice choice for Handle. I make it out of round blank, by using my angle grinder and Firm Lathe. Also it was soaked in Linseed oil polished and made a burned wood finish to reveal the texture.
