Hello folks, I have a Disston Victory saw which has a broken horn. I have purchase some mahogany to make repairs, but I would like some ideas as to have to about it. There is also a crack just above the horn. It does not go all the way across the handle. I was wondering if I force some glue in it, if would show up when I put a finish on it. As always your vast knowledge is greatly appreciated.

I've used compressed air to drive glue into small cracks like that. If you don't want it affecting the finish you'll have to sand down through it.

I think it's reached the end of it usable life. I'd use it as a template for a new one, stick nailed it.

Thank you everyone. I was trying to leave the saw with all its original parts. Yes the repair will not be original but most of the saw will be. Thank you
