Definitely interesting old one and a half hand sided saw rescue. In this restoration video I tried to rescue this hand saw, unfortunately because of too deep pitting on saw blade I couldn’t get result what I wanted.
Anyway, I started restoration by disassembling the hand saw. The saw’s blade was attached to the handle with two brass rivets. I had to break them to be able to separate saw blade from the handle.

After that I Placed a saw blade in vinegar bath and left it overnight. In meanwhile I was sanding the handle and preparing it for linseed oil.
For sanding down a wooden handle I used sandpaper grit 120 and afterwards grit 240. I got smooth and nice surface to proceed. Therefore was no need for higher grit number.
Next day I pulled out the saw blade from vinegar and cleaned it with plain cloth. After that I used steel brush to remove tarnish from vinegar.
To get better results I Installed steel brush on my restored hand cranked grinder and managed to get nice shiny surface. Really huge difference as you can see on picture below. Also I sanded the blade with sandpaper. Unfortunately some pitting were too deep and I had to stop sanding. Any further sanding would jeopardize the blade’s integrity.
Then I tilted the every second saw tooth and sharpen afterwards with triangle file. I was happy with sharpness and saw’s teeth condition, therefore I could start assembling the saw.
Assembling the old hand saw.
Placing all parts together was easy task and it left just to hammer down the peens with peen ball hammer. Then with a help of a file I flattened the brass peens to wooden surface. And here it is!
