Coates to bring saw collection to Heritage Festival

The things people collect are often as unique and interesting as the collector. While many collect stamps and coins, or rocks and arrowheads, few collect chain saws like South Boston resident Dean Coates. Just a few short years ago, Coates knew very little about his now massive collection. After a trip to neighboring Person County’s Optimist Park and seeing demonstrations of some pretty impressive old saws, he was hooked. Coates says he was fascinated by the age of these old saws and the fact that they still performed well some 60 years later. His love for old motors, and the fact that saw collecting is far less expensive than old car collecting, he says he’s been hooked and looking for the oldest saws he can find ever since.
