This blog is all about my interest in woodworking, particularly in regards to modern and mid-century design. It will also house my on-going efforts in refurbing and restoring old woodworking machinery and hand tools, and may go off track occasionally as I see fit.

Rust Hunting in Georgia - February 2011
Had a chance this past Sunday to go by one of my favorite Antique/Flea places and spied a small hand-saw. It's unmarked and probably from a kid's tool box but the price was right (less than $3). Walking around I spied a Disston D-23 with a carved apple handle - it's a later post-nib but straight and cut at 11 tpi - also with a $3.50 sticker well worth buying - I tried to capture the etch but didn't quite get it. In any case both of these aren't bad to clean up. My total with discount was less than $6 with tax.
That's about it for tool hunting - more Unisaw updates coming!
