Default Need help pricing this saw

A widow friend of my brother wants to sell off her late husbands woodworking equipment. Most of it is too big and/or heavy to sell anywhere but locally. This is one of the items I canít put a price to so Iím looking for input.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

It looks nice and I wouldn't mind having it but I have no clue for a price.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Charles they seem to be going for $20 to $65 in Ontario.

That one looks particularly nice. I would try $75 or best offer.

There are worse looking ones on eBay for $40-$75 plus shipping. I would start with $100 and see if any nibbles. You just have to find someone who just can't live without it.

Beautiful saw

It is in pristine condition but like you say Doug, the trick is locating the future owner.

Bargain is always in the eye of the buyer. Price high then negotiate.

That is a beauty. $100 OBO. Or a gift to a tool museum or maybe put on consignment in one of those places where they recreate historic living. If it's old enough, it might be an antique, which would up the price. Perhaps contact the TV show American Pickers and ask for help placing it. Needs a little history, so wife should write up what she remembers about its origin. Did the husband buy if from someone who owned it before, is there any story about it she could write down, or picture of her husband using it?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

There was a Cdn. version up here, Tom. Ended in 2013 I think(?)...
But yeh, something in the commercial line maybe, pub or restaurant decor?

Canadian Pickers calls it quits | TV, eh?

The late husbandís grandfather started woodworking and his dad continued it. I believe were naval officers and I think fairly high ranking. The late husband was a firefighter who worked with my brother. I canít remember if he served in the Navy. Father and grandfather built some nice pieces which are now antiques. The son/ grandson didnít inherit their level of talent.

I donít know if father or grandfather bought it but it would be at least 60 years old and likely older. Those saws havenít been popular for a long time. However, I read in a book by Tage Frid that thatís all he used for cutting dovetails and he used it when teaching and that by the end of his courses that many of the students had adopted it.

Looks nice. Possibly made by the father or grandfather. A lot of people made their own, some still do. All in all a handy tool.
