This is a Thomas Sheldon & Son back saw that I purchased a few years ago since it was freshly sharpened, but needed a handle repair. I love collecting vintage hand tools, and restoring them to working condition.

After much thought, I decided to simply shape a new handle since a repair between vintage and new wood can leave an ugly scar.

Of course, I copied the original shape as closely as I could, then added the delicate lamb's tongue which had been broken off.

Thomas Sheldon & Son operated from 1837-1864 in Sheffield, England; so this saw is over 150 years old. And functioning like new again!

The original hardware was severely bent, and quite a challenge to even remove. I bent the Medallion very gently to help it fit the new handle, but chose to replace the split nuts.

The new handle is made from Pecan, stained with Ipswitch Pine, and finished with Arm-R-Seal.
