    A bit of sandpaper and Johnson Wax and you will have a keeper.
    I have a D7 that I gave the treatment to.

    bench clean up, bits.JPG
    First 2? A 3/8" Gimlet bit I had, and that 5/8" made in Germany drill bit....then 4 counter sinks ( I already had two of them) 3 screwdriver tips, had one to begin with..a 1/4" bit from that metal box, and my 5/16" bit....Once that Mitre Box and the Sheffield saw are done, I can work on the rest of the bits....have the contents soaking, right now...

    Just read where that Sheffield saw might have had it's plate Blued? Wonder how that will go, when I clean the plate up?

    Snaggle teeth need fixed....too much "Cow & Calf" going on....

    No, I don't feel like jointing these all off, and cutting new teeth....Hmmmm...

    Ok, upon further review..
    Aug. 2nd Yard Sale, points.JPG
    That "Yankee" pushdrill is marked as a "FULTON" Made in Germany. Hmmmm....Tips will fit in my North Bros. Yankee , too.

    Visegrips have been put to work.

    Still soaking that box of drill bits...will clean and sort them, after the Mitre Box rehab is done....other than a few "keepers " I already have cleaned up

    Next to the 3/8" Gimlet bit, there is a 5/8" Germany bit....like a cross between a spade bit, and an auger bit. Hmmm?

    Box has been emptied out..
    Drill bit box of bits, empty.JPG
    Still nasty...poured a layer of oxyclean and letting it soak a while..
    Treasures..ehhh, could be...
    Drill bit box of bits 2.JPGDrill bit box of bits 1.JPG
    Cleaned bits of the left?
    Drill bit box of bits, motley crew.JPG
    A motley bunch, also like these..
    Drill bit box of bits, keepers.JPG
    maybe a hand-powered drill press? Or a breast drill with 3 jaws?
    Drill bit box of bits.,Irwins.JPG
    Dug out 2 of my Irwins, to see IF either could supply a cutter to the #21 in the middle...Maybe I can order a new one? Smaller one is a #1....larger one is a #22...the #22's cutter looks like it might fit...
    Have started the clean up....one of the bits is a Bates rest look like irwins...

    Steven,

    I don't know, but it looks like the $6 box may have even been a better deal than the $1 saw.

    I would sand the rusty saw with fine sandpaper and hit with a coat of Johnson Floor Wax.
    If you do not have Johnson Floor Wax, get a can. It will last a life time preventing rust and it does not stain the wood.

    After a bit of clean up...the one "barn auger" wannabee is a Bates. the 3 that look like jennings...are P.S. & W. Co. bits.

    Largest of the bits is a #20

    Looks like the #21 and the #22 will share that moving cutter....
    Drill bit box of bits.,Irwins.JPG
    As the cutter from the #1 won't quite work.
    Aug. first yard sale, the meh...JPG
    That strange looking bit in the middle? is stamped as a "12"....but, I don't think it means 12/16" =3/4"
    Drill bit box of bits, motley crew.JPG
    Spade bit, hex shank...no spurs.
    Concrete Drill bit....cleaned from the 1/2" shank down to the carbide cutter....only to find a chip out on one edge...junk.
    Smallest bit right now is that #4....4/16"
    Drill bit box of bits, keepers.JPG
    These? Looks like he had cut them down, for use in 3 jaw chucks....like a breast drill? may test that out, later...
    Millers Falls No. 120.JPG
    Millers Falls No. 120, might just do the trick....
    2 Millers Falls drills.JPG
    As they may be too big for the Millers Falls No. 2-01?
    Legs are sore, and crampy today....may take the day off....knee get worked on/over tomorrow....will see how THAT goes...
    May "rinse out" the soap from inside the case..
    Drill bit box of bits, empty.JPG
    Dry it out, sand things a bit smoother....then prime and paint? need to figure out a latch, and maybe a handle, or two?
    Stay tuned..

    Drill bit box of bits, cleaned up.JPG
    Let the sunshine further dry it off...tried to find the right can of paint...found it, but was soooo old, it didn't work...so...basic black for now?

    Wow, that is a nice haul. On my next trip out to your shop, you might be asking me.....

    "Is that a saw and a bunch of augers you sneaking out in your pants, or are you happy to see me?"

    Be sure to post the saw after you clean it up.

    If the teeth are really out of control, you might be able to use a vice to move them back. I think the trick was that you placed some paper (couple of sheets) on each side so that the teeth could dig into the paper, but, it would still close them up a bit.

    One of those bits looks like a HUGE screw removal bit. Any thoughts on what it is?
