Cleaning A Shapleigh Diamond Edge Backsaw - a video tutorial by Old Sne...

I stopped at an estate sale on the way home from the store. I picked up a Craftsman pushdrill, a Disston #12 Crosscut saw, and a Craftsman Miter box with a Shapleigh Hardware Co. Diamond Edge Back Saw. Before buying the Shapleigh saw I hadn...'t head of the company or the brand. With a little research I found that the company began in 1843 and continued until the early 1960's. This saw was made between 1918 and 1935.
I cleaned up the Shapleigh and recorded the process that you can see here.
