Tools of the Trade - MyWorld

We found this bucket of old hand saws at a garage sale. It seems sad to me when the tools that were used to make a living to feed and clothe a family are sold to total strangers. I know that these went to a good home to be treasured for their sentimental value rather than their antique value.

  7. The photo of the saws are fantastic. I ever saw someone used saw as a musical instrument.

  8. There are so many similar looking ones. You'd think that most people will have one or tow of this, then use a powered saw mostly...
