SOLD: Several woodworkers I respect insisted that I purchase one of the straight-handled dovetail saws to try them out. I’ve always preferred pistol-grip backsaws, but I always keep an open mind.
After a couple years of messing with the saw, I’ve decided to stick with pistol-grip saws.
This Lie-Nielsen straight-handled dovetail saw is filed 15 points per inch (rip) and has a highly figured maple handle. There are no blemishes on the sawplate or handle. The saw is sharp, straight and ready to go.
Price: $45 plus domestic shipping. SOLD
About Tool Sales on My Blog Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.
Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.
While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at email@example.com.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
