Ya don't happen to have a spare handle or jointer do ya?  I'm not lucking out with the antique stores.

Robert,

I have some of the sharpening stuff but don't know how to use it.  I have seen handles  and jointers at Don's tools in Laffayette, on 99w north of McMinnville.  Jim's crosscut saws lists all of that and saws too.

Thanks Bill.  I do have a handle on order from Jim's but they want too much for the gages.  Ebay prices are ridiculous too.  But if I can't find anything cheaper I may have to go that route.

I have been finding filing stuff at antique stores for quite a bit less than e-bay for the last year or two now.

Craigs list is the place to round up saws. There are a few dreamers out there, but many are reasonable.

If your saw is way out of joint, probably ought send it to Jim for a once over and then you can keep it in joint with the little jointers.

Kinda want to ride over to Layfayette and check out Don's Tools.

Side 1 all cleaned of rust down to shiny metal. After starting on side 2, I found the original marker's mark! It says:

Henry Disston
Spring Steel
Xtra High Temper
Four Gauges Thinner on Back
NEVADA
Recommended for fast cutting
Philadelphia PA

I'm guessing 20s-30s vintage.

Received my nice restored Western handle from Jim's Crosscut!  Time to get busy on that saw.
