Here we go again :roll: Sorry folks but I just get excited about these old saws...can't help myself...I hit this slope in 2008 after losing a lung & having to cut down on my sawdust intake....been sliding ever since!
This one is a Wheeler, Madden & Clemson top of the line Xcut 8tpi. It was in pretty bad shape, rusty and the handle was painted red :shock: As you can see in the pics...I cleaned it down to a beautiful surface of quilted walnut with amazing chatoyance. It cut amazingly well considering the teeth will need to be reshaped considerably. I am VERY happy to have this saw and it will be my Go To user from now on.
Thanks for looking!!
Don

Yes, Sean, it is a fairly common term to describe the depth & shine of wood when finish is applied. I was introduced to the term by Russ Filbeck, a master chair maker many years ago. I'm sure you've seen some beautiful grain in figured walnut, curly or birdseye maple and.... here's a piece of maple I used for drawer fronts a few years ago as an example...can you see the depth of the grain even before finish was applied?

Can you think of a word that would convey the appearance of that?? Chatoyance....just fits
