Restoring Spear & Jackson Backsaw by Diego de Assis

Diego de Assis


A few years ago I was walking through the antiques fair in the Praça XV, in downtown Rio de Janeiro, when the beautiful shape of the handle of an old back saw caught my eye.


It was in very poor condition, but the price was right, so it went home with me. Lately I've been focusing on the saws in our shop, and I decided to give this old tool a chance to get back into useful service.

In this article I show the restoration of a backsaw made by the English firm Spear & Jackson. It is a 14" sash saw, used for making precise cuts.
