Hi all! Fairly new to this great site and woodworking. I’m building up my tool collection and recently purchased this vintage R Groves and Sons brass back dovetail saw. Can’t wait to restore it and put it to use!
Does anyone know where I can get the screw/nut and medallion for this saw? The one on it says “USE” and is about 9/16″ of an inch.

That looks to be a very nice saw!
Not sure where you are but in the UK, Workshop Heaven have this http://www.workshopheaven.com/tools/Saw_Nut.html.
As to the medallion, I have no idea sorry.

Thanks for the link! I’m actually in the US. I checked out that site and a few others but the nuts seem to be too small. They’re all about 1/4″. The diameter of the hole is about 9/16″ so I think it would look a little weird =( I guess I don’t really need the medallion. Just a brass saw nut that is about 1/2″ to 9/16″ so it fills the hole.9 March 2014 at 11:28 pm #28769
For anyone else looking, I found the screws/nuts I need at toolsforworkingwood.com. Their dovetail saw kit uses brass 1/2″ diameter screws =)
