Just wondered if anyone could give me any insight on this old Disston. Just want to know if it has value, sure is a weird sucker.

    I've heard that chain might be worth something. There was one like that in real good condition sold at an auction this spring in nice condition that brought around $90.

    Looks like a whole lotta cutters!

    That powerhead would look great on a front wheel drive go-cart.

    Classic Diston w/straddle scratcher chain. Bishops in Perry, Ks. has a couple restored on display.

    Value?

    Put it up on evilbay, start the bidding at $0.99 and you will find out.

    My uncle not only ran them all day but sharpened chains half the night. but that was back in the day when Men were real men. Uncle cut timer till he was in his mid 80's, was 101 when he passed.

    I wouldn't like to run it all day my self rather peel pulp logs all day. You got to be old when you can remember peeling pulp logs all summer for spending money.

    :D Al
