Earl’s Restoration – A Wade Drag Saw

I was going to write an article about a project of Richard’s from Earl’s Restoration, about the restoration of a drag saw that he’d shared with me via Twitter.


The drag saw was made by R.M.Wade and is a petrol driven automatic saw, the precursor to a chainsaw. The user manual is still online.

Unfortunately @EarlSinclare seems to have dropped off the Twitter so I’ll have to do some investigation. As you can see from the photo below there’s some work to be done. However, I’ve seen some of his previous work so I know it will be top quality.

If you know Richard then please put him back in contact with me as I’d love to see how the saw project is coming along.
