    I'm getting so sick of nursing my Poulan-Pro along that I'm thinking it's time to go back to the two-man saw. I'm thinking of actually getting a second two-man saw.

    Does anyone have experience with them? The one I have is a German-made plain-tooth design with a very simple (also inadequate) handle design.

    Just curious if anyone has recommendations for tooth designs, brands, and handles. My first time around I got the cheapest two-man saw I could, now I'm willing to spend a bit more.

    I'd buy 'em up at $16 whatever the tooth-pattern/condition.

    The tooth patterns were designed for either soft-wood, hardwood, or combination.

    Just like a chainsaw - if you sharpen the teeth you'd be surprised at how much better they work. But that's another dilemna - guys who can sharpen those things are few and far between.

    See if your local college has a woodsmans club. I'm thinking of bring the two saws there so they can teach me.

    $16! God, I'd buy them all day long at that price. I just love the old hand made tools. They just work.

    Sharpening them shouldn't be that hard, but setting the teeth... that could be tough without the proper tool.
