    Where can I get an "old style" Mcleod?

    It seems all the Mcleod manufacturers are now making Mcleods with bolt on, removable heads. These are heavy and unbalanced compared to the old style. Anyone know where I can get a Mcleod with a riveted on head and a wood handle. True Temper used to make good ones, but don't seem to any more.

    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    The Truper there is the newer style with the bolt, but I think Zac might be the ticket. Most folks like the new ones just fine, but I think they don't have quite the same feel and that bolt makes it harder to tamp or use for a "slope meter". Today, my freind from the Forest Service gave me one of the old ones, so I have an assortment of 5 mceods now -Corona, Nupla, Council tool, and 2 of the old ones, don't know the brands. I think one reason my old Mcleod feels lighter is because I've sharpened it so many times. Thanks

    I like the Nupla ones that chiefsupply carries. Tough handles, rivetted heads and best of all they are $45!

    One nice thing about the Zac McLeods is the shaft is ovalized where it is welded to the head. This allows Zac McLeods to partially nest with each other, taking up much less room in a tool trailer.
