This publication presents an expansive and well thought out encyclopedic approach to woodwork, saws, and other tools of the lumber trade. This book provides information on anvils, band saws, solid tooth saws, back saws, cylinder straws, cross-cut straws, and even files and rasps. The text not only includes relevant historical information on the tools, it also highlights important rules of care and instructions for crafting your own tools from raw materials. This knowledge would be invaluable to people who are thrifty, who are curious about saw making, who need to fix their own saws, or who want to craft saws for their own business ventures.
Disston Lumberman Handbook: Containing a Treatise on the Construction of Saws and How to Keep Them in Order, Together With Other Information of Kindred Character is a great resource for any individual in the lumber industry. This book also provides a vast amount of information for craftsmen with any level of knowledge or experience.
