Saw Rehab #2

The second saw has a big chunk of Beech that was just begging to get small, so I obliged. However, what I *thought* were screws holding the handle on were actually rivets shaped like screws. After twisting for about an half hour, I finally realized something just wasn’t right and drilled them out. Which means I gotta replace them. Later. With the handle off, I free handed some lines based, roughed things out on the band saw, did the initial shaping with a half round rasp followed by metal files and finally lots and lots of emery cloth (mostly 120 grit). Simple huh? A day or two and oil soak later:

Next: varnish, make saw nuts then clean and sharpen the blade.
