Did a Little Rust-Hunting Today

I was in the seedy part of town today, which we all know is the best place to rust-hunt.  Couldn't resist stopping in a small locally-owned new and used tool place.  They usually don't have much decent stuff, but every now and then I find something worthwhile.  Picked up a few user tools today, nothing major.

First a 14" backsaw, maker unknown.  I liked the beech handle, and I think the steel will clean up nicely. $5

Next was a 22" Spear and Jackson 8 tpi crosscut saw.  It's been sharpened a few times, but still lots of life left.  $5

And finally a nice Bessey "30" F type clamp for the outrageous price of $10.  15" long and 5 1/2" throat depth, these things come in handy.
