Spent a bit of time yesterday and this morning in the shop. I got this old saw years ago, and finally decided to spruce it up a bit. Still needs some work. But, this was the first time I tried vinegar to remove the rust. I scraped the loose stuff off first, then sanded with 150 to get most of the surface rust off. Then submerged in vinegar for about 15 hours. Honestly, I didn’t really like the process over just sanding. Maybe I left it in too long, or not long enough? I ended up sanding with 320 afterwards just to get it to where it is in the last picture. I can barely make out the etch, but it says sheffield steel? The medallion says Sheffield Warranted, with a big A inside a shield. Never seen one like that.
I do love the handle though, it’s very comfortable and large enough to get my thumb in for two handed ripping. Can’t wait to get it setup and sharpened.
