I recently bought a steel back tenon saw that needs some TLC. Rust and muck is now being attacked, to do this properly I took the back off of the blade.
When done I noticed it wasn’t fully seated, tapering to the handle. If you know what I mean – I hope its clear in the picture of the detached blade.
Question is, is this normal? This is my first backsaw so I have no reference. If I were to fix it it would cover the top hole in the plate. Is this per design or a sloppy build?
It is a Knowles & co saw, from Sheffield.
Let me know your thoughts,
