My work this week wasn't really blog worthy - unless you want to see pictures of plasterboarded walls!
|Old crosscut saw|
So instead I thought I'd blog about my latest acquisition from the car boot sale this morning - an old crosscut saw. Now I could do with a bit of advice on what the correct name is for this saw. I know a lot of this style were meant to be one or two man saws but this one is 58 1/2" long so it would be pretty tricky to use it on your own!

|Handle at the back|
It's in great condition, the teeth are all there and the curve of the blade looks like it's never been messed with, in fact It almost looks as though it's never been sharpened. Not bad for £4 (he wanted £5 but I haggled him down). The rust is only light on the saw as well with no pitting.

So if anyone knows the right name for the saw and the type of teeth (which I'm fairly sure I know but I'll test you all anyway) please let me know.
I'm very tempted to mount this saw on the wall going up the stairs and then just use it for special occasions!
