So, there's one of the old school Hardware shops near me, mostly now selling stuff for finishing, and bits of everything from pine caracassing, to the odd bit of copper pipe and a few hand tools...
Talking with the proprietor, I mentioned I'd just had a Disston 14 inch tenon saw brought back into service, after a good few years gently rusting away, when he said' Oh I've got a few of them here somwhere.., and on a check through the old stock, waaay at the back of the shops, underneath the Stanley jet cuts, etc was....

no sadly not a Disston still in it's sales package from a bygone era ..but

almost as good, A Tyzack 10tpi 550mm 'Non Pareil' saw which was... :shock:

....so I grabbed it! (after paying of course!) :D


so nice to find a store, that still has a good mix of everything in it, and not totally dedicated to selling everything Silverline...

just gos to show, there are still a few gems out there folks...

I'm just happy to find a hardware shop that still sells parafin for my Tilley lamps!
