Found this perfect piece of quilted hard maple to execute another Reagan remake.

One of my customers, John B, send me these two pictures. The first is a Winsor Saw TenonBennett_Tenon doing joinery in hard maple in preparation for a 1800’s Chippendale mirror. The second is the end product, or better yet, art piece! Here’s what John has to say about his new Winsor Tenon Saw:

“Hi Robert, Attached is a photo of your saw helping me cut the joinery of late 1800s Chippendale rococo mirror.
The ripped filing cuts beautifully.”

Simply stunning!

My customer grabbed this not so nice Disston backsaw off of eBay. For a nominal investment Winsor Saw acid washed the plade sanding to 600 grit straightened the plate, set, sharpened, tuned the plate and epoxy bedded the plate to the tote.  Now the saw is a finely tuned beast ready to make some serious sawdust. Blade was filed 13ppi crosscut.

On the bench today is a pair of custom saws out of highly figured walnut. Larry ordered a slightly smaller handle for his 10″ dovetail and 11″ carcass.

Many thanks to Mark at Woodcraft who turned this beautiful 16 oz. Cocobolo mallet for me. Totally Awesome!

I few months ago I acquired a very rare Disston Reagan No.9. The saw is in great shape and made a perfect model for me to prototype my version of the saw. I found a nice piece of fiddleback walnut and shaped a near identical tote from the antique version. I made a few modifications to fit the modern person’s hand. The blade is .025″ thick 1095 spring steel. Filed 12 ppi crosscut. the blade is slotted into a .25″ x .75″ brass spine and complimented with engraving. I’ll be test marketing the saw on Ebay in the next few weeks plus I’ll be offering the original Disston Reagan No.9 on Ebay. Both saws are sharpened and tuned to perfection.

Winsor Saw Reproduces a classic.
