I recently won an auction from a local online auction place for a tub of old tools. I had no description of what was in it but from the picture I could tell there were some older and neat looking hand tools. Anyway I got the whole tub ill post pics of everything later for These two hand saws. The 2nd saw at bottom of picture is marked Henry C Weber on the blade along with some more wording that I just cant make out without doing some light sanding… I just recently got into restoring old hand planes and I learned a few things but I know nothing about saws.

My question is should I restore these things and use them? I looked them up on ebay and different places and I just cant tell if either of these are worth anything. I was hoping someone on here could provide me with some advice on what I should do with these… I have no problem bringing them back to life and time and effort is not an issue. The Weber saw has a WW marked on the handle. Anyone know if the saw would come like that or if it was added later?

I am itching to restore these things… — Dan – “Collector of Hand Planes” 17 replies so far.
