I have recently purchased two Henery Disston one man bucking saws and a two man bucking saw. I would like to know what tools i need to purchase to maintain these saws.

Squirrel74,
It depends on their condition. If they are sharp and working well you just need to keep them clean and rust free. They will work fine for a long time.

If all settings are good and just needs a little touch up on the cutting edges, a diamond hone works well.

If they need a full sharpening, check out the manual and video on top of this page:

Theses references do a good job of describing the whole sharpening process and tools required.
