    Default The things that kids have in their school cases

    These old school cases are very sturdy and come in a variety of sizes,

    I found this one ideal to hold some of my small speciality saws.

    thanks for your reply, it's been a while since that was posted,
    yes there is quite a variety in there, they are all on the smallish
    side compared to regular hand saws.

    When not being showed off there is a large piece of foam that
    goes on top to keep them from moving about.

    I had missed this one too. I think it would be worthwhile to remove them from the child's port so we can see what there is.

    A case study, if you like.

    In particular I can see a Pattern Makers Saw and I am most interested to know the maker.

    Iím sorry
    But Iím going to stand up and complain and be a annoying.
    Iím disgusted at the state in which all those beautiful tools are kept.
    This is not responsible or respectful to all those sharp edges just bashing into each other with know care in the world.

    Can you wait until Graham shows us the tools before giving him a blast? Now he will take umbrage and we may never know what is lurking in the case!

    Matt didn't really mean that. He is just envious .

    Just in case Graham goes into a monsterous sulk (not really) I think I can see at least this in addition to the Pattern Makers Saw:

    Two Jewellers saws ( I will get one of those one day)
    Black handled saw looks as though it could be a medical type of bone saw (is that what a saw doctor is?)
    Cone headed back saw
    Split nut back saw
    Multi blade saw with wingnut attachment
    Keyhole or compass saws
    Gents saw.

    All very interesting so I am repeating CBaulds' request for them to be layed out and identified.

    Regards

    No,
    Matt was just looking out for the ones know one cares about.
    Bit like the Mother Teresa of the forgotten tool society[emoji849].

    Not a single one of those would look the least bit out of place if it landed on any of my wood carving benches.

    Hi all,

    the case holds a lot of my small specialty saws to keep them all together,
    before the lid gets closed there is a fair amount of fill and padding that goes
    between and over them to keep them safe, that was removed prior their
    big photo display.

    The majority of them when purchased were in the usual daggy rusty state
    that we see a lot of the time.

    So the list in no particular order is:

    2 x Disston # 9 improved back saws with the Reagan pattern handle, 10" and 8"
    3 x Geo. Bishop # 10 adjustable rip / x-cut back saws, 14", 12" and 8"
    4 x cast metal handled pad saws
    1 x S & J turned wooden handled pad saw
    2 x 8" 'Junior' saws
    1 x Disston # 6 adjustable Stair Builders saw
    1 x Disston # 1 pattern makers saw
    1 x Disston nest of saws
    2 x jewellers saws
    1 x Eclipse # 45 5" back saw
    3 x Surgens saws, one with ebony handle
    1 x kitchen 12" knife / saw
    1 x 5" gents back saw
    1 x 4" hobby saw
    1 x 4" circular floor saw

    Am not sure why I started collecting all these various saws,
    maybe just to have an example of the diversity of uses and
    patterns that the manufactures produced.

    It's a good thing I don't collect vintage cars!!!!

    Graham.

    Thanks for showing those pix. What wonderful collection of small saws. I really appreciate the diversity.It has been a frustrating day and that display has redeemed the remaining hours.

    Let me know when you turn your attention to vintage cars. I could be interested in seeing those too. Myself I will stick to a few rusty hand saws.

    Regards
    Paul

    Ps. I had no idea there was so much in there. Is it made by the same manufacturer as the Tardis?

    My grandfather built fishing boats of western red cedar and Douglas fir in Vancouver BC.
    I remember those saws with the loopy metal handles. Might have one in the bottom of a box.
    Thanks for the reveal. Those are nice, quiet things to use.

    Graham,
    Maybe I should apologise and eat some humble pie.
    Thank you for explaining that the saws are packed carefully, I can now sleep a little easier at night.

    Now if I may suck up a bit, if itís not to much trouble could I have some dimensions on the little round fat guy,with the stumpy blade,
    (The gents saw in the first pic ruffly centre in case you were thinking of someone else).

    Because Baldric I have a cunning plan,well more just a itching to make something similar one day,
    An I would like to compare your saw with two gents saws I have already.
    But please no rush itís just an idea at present.

    Cheers Matt,
    BTW great collection of little saws [emoji6]

    Matt

    Are you talking about this one?

    Actually I am quite sure everybody knew exactly what you were talking about. "little fat guy in the middle of first pic. Calls himself a real gent." I was just showing off my IT skills, which everybody knows are next to zero.





    I did wonder why they were called "Gents" saws and then it came to me in a blinding epiphany: There isn't enough room to swing a cat in the loo so the saws are bound to be correspondingly small. What is puzzling is that there is no equivalent Ladies saw because you can't swing a ....Ooops, don't think I should have gone there.

    Over to you Graham for the finer details. Nice handle by the way although those nano teeth look like a nightmare to sharpen.

    Regards
    Paul
