I am curious about this as well. Are you wanting a cross cut or rip?

Don’t know about any that big. This company usually stocks quality tools:

I have a pax panel saw and find it works well. Never used their two man saws but here it is:

No modern makers of two man saws make them taper ground so the plate is thinnest away from the teeth so it requires less set. I also didn’t see any of the above that were the length you wanted and have the more advanced tooth patterns like the lance tooth or perforated lance tooth. I don’t think those were just for hardwoods like one of the links said, but rather just more efficient in general.

So to get the best you still need to find a vintage one in good enough condition and learn how to sharpen it which is no small feat.

Have your say...
