Simeson big back saw

A few years ago, maybe 8 or so, I found my first back saw in the wild, in this case a flea sheed on Sjealland, the capital island of denmark. The hanldle has wormholes, the blade and spin were rusty and the tooth line was weavy as the ocean around Sjealland in a big storm. I wouldn't have taken it, but it was the first backsaw. And it wasn't expensive. (Buying second hand in scandinavia is allways cheap.) Not sure what it was meant to be used as. If it was american I would have said mitre saw, but the blade is thinner than on the mitre saws and the hang is much lower. So I think it was meant as a r e a l tenon saw. This summer I'm clearing my shop from all tools I don't use, because I will move to a much smaller shop in the near future. So I cut of the weavy tooth line wit the sheer an toothed it with 8 tpi rip. Though I really like it now, I know I won't be using it in the next few years. (No construction work in sight.) So I send it to a good friend to be used what it was meant for.

  1. Hi,

    I enjoyed your post. How are you handling the insanely hot summer in Denmark?
    By the way I have a question I hope you can help me with. I'm a beginner woodworker and I've been struggling to come up with ideas for projects, and when I get an idea I often lack a plan on how to proceed.
    I stumbled upon a review for this woodworking package that includes many plans that I could use to inspire me. I found it on the side bar section on https://quarterveneer.com/ I'm unsure if it's worth the money. Are you familiar with it ? what are your thoughts on it?
