They look a lot like my slasher teeth on my 60in circle saw slasher I canít quite tell in your pic if they are a replaceable shank like mine?

If yours donít rivet one like mine you can solder on new carbide tips I have never personally tried cause itís easier to just rivet in new ones

Ditto, can't tell the tooth style. Menominee saw or B.H. Payne will know and probably have teeth.

 Thanks Maine Logger and Moodnacreek
I have bought the 2 saws and picked them up yesterday. Wire brushed a few teeth this morning. These saws appear to be old but never used and likely on the packing frames they were sold with.
Remarkably I got them from a deceased estate sell off right in the middle of the city of Brisbane Qld. The old fella had a 12 acre block with a dozen or so large hoop pines up the back and he had a dream to mill them himself, itís all housing around it now, the pines are still there and the son in law said that they canít touch the pines now and development has to be built around them. He canít give me any further info, nobody knows where he got the 2 saws, they found them up the back buried under heaps of other stuff.
Anyway, the main blade is 7mm thick, 1500 diameter with tooth holders that are riveted on. The tooth itself has a round tapered shank with one side flat and it just bumps in and out. The front edge has a recess hole that appears like it could be for a screw however it is just a divet where a punch could be used to drive the taper in tight. It looks to me like a terrific setup for cutting hard timber where teeth cut be changed in a few minutes, if I can source the actual teeth it will be excellent. I paid $800 au for the pair.

 I dont know the conversion rate but I think the tooth profile is LONG outdated especially for a slasher saw. I've got the same simonds saw that Maine logger posted, it takes a beating and that a 4" insert tooth that's firmly held in the saw, those "teeth" on your saw are pinned on the end of the shank buddy I think your just getting into a mountain of problems

Barge monkey, appreciate your comments thanks.
I had a look at a video of the slasher saw because i didnít who what it was, yeah looks mighty. I decided to buy these 2 saws because it was a much smaller investment to get me up and running if I just use one saw for a donor to the other. If later I need to buy a Simonds saw that will be ok. The spindle size on these is 52mm, do you know what your spindle size is ?
There may be a possibility that the Quadco insert holder and teeth could fit so thatís my next follow up.

I'm not trying to knock it believe me I'm the king of cheap. The tooth spacing and shoulder spacing look wide, those saws dont look like a true "slasher saw" to me. Maybe in softwood, but your saying "hardwood" and buddy it just beats them to death if your in the bigger stuff all day. I will measure the tooth spacing and count, I want to say my 54" has 42x teeth, just your tooth spacing looks so far apart for a 60" saw.

Yeah ok, Iím hearing you. Since I donít know what these saws were designed for, maybe they were for breaking down ( ripping ) . Most of my experience is breaking down / ripping. My Dad and I built a swingsaw when I was a lot younger, itís 2 wheels that are height adjustable, powered by a 4cyl Volkswagen engine, motor one end, saw the other. Iíve really only ever used chainsaws for cross cutting.

My Bells has a 4.4 Acert, 120hp, it takes every ounce of power at 2200 rpm standing on its nose drooling to run that processor and conveyor, I've seen a few guys talk 30hp to run a circle saw and it's not possible. Yeah just something about the tooth spacing and profile looks way off, too far apart for a slasher saw. No one else has seen those bits down there? They look simple to change but again hardwood it doesnt take much to shear a small pin. Simonds teeth are 8.00 each ? The tool for the rivets is handy, I can basically change a tooth about every 2 mins in and out if they aren't bound in, really the only way to go with a slasher saw that I know of.

 Photo of swingsaw, I have a big blade that also goes on it, cutting fence posts in this picture but often used for breaking down logs before they go on the saw bench. They were mostly home built and sleeper cutters used them to cut railway sleepers. My dad has been passed on for 4 years so this old machine has a lot of sentimental value as we mostly built it from scraps with a fair bit of lathe work.

Thanks Mike, the saw pulls towards the operater however as long as the saw is set and sharpened properly they are really not anywhere near as dangerous as it looks, I have added a kill switch that I have to keep my hand on to keep the motor running, itís pretty easy to bog that motor to a stall, the saw is meant to go up and down as it moves forward. 
The job in the photos, I had 300 posts to cut out of yellow box, itís notorious to blunten chainsaws, started the job with a 395 husky but was not getting 10 posts and then it was a major sharpen so I got the swing saw out and the radial blade handled it no worries ( no carbide ) just a brush once a day with the barstard file.
