"At Pivot Point of Horizontal and Vertical" --by RusticWoodArt

10-04-2007 03:59 PM by frank | 5 comments »

At Pivot Point of Horizontal and Vertical —-have you yet wondered what is at the point of pivot here, where I tilt my saw from horizontal in a continuous downward motion to reach a place of vertical cut? I must confess that the terms here ‘horizontal’ and ‘vertical’ can lead to many understandings, so I am going to try and narrow down what I am talking about here. This will lead me out again, today and over the weekend to shoot some more photo’s so th...

10-02-2007 05:03 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Going from Horizontal to Vertical in Freehand ....so here we go again, best grab your safety glasses, mickey mouse ears and put your chaps on, as we journey outside into the wonder-full world of workin’ with wood…. Safety is: 1) eye protection2) ear protection3) leg and groin protection....and….if we were entering the woods to take some trees down…. 4) head protection! Safety is; having a good mental disposition….or right mindset! Safety is unde...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #6: "Homelite 26 LCS and more....." --by RusticWoodArt

10-01-2007 04:37 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Homelite 26 LCS and more….. ....and so I thought I would toss in a few more photo’s of the Homelite 26 LCS model chainsaw, along with some shots of the gear reduction drive system, 2.75:1, that it used…. ....and along with the belt reduction, one will also notice the external plumbing line for the oiler, at the entry way into the chain bar. The oiler was manual, and thumb operated and while checking this one out on Saturday afternoon , I can affirm that pump is sti...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #5: "Homelite 26 LCS" --by RusticWoodArt

09-28-2007 02:56 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Homelite 26 LCS I thought I would post an-other one of my collected chainsaws here from the bygone days of ‘golden oldies’.... ....and when one really gets to studying these ‘beasts’, one can also much more appreciate where we are today, with chainsaws in terms of safety, (don’t you just love the safety word) weight, horsepower and ease of the cut in the wood…. ....the Homelite 26 LCS was introduced in 1951 and discontinued in 1953…. ...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #4: "More Safety, Chainsaw....Broadax" --by RusticWoodArt

09-26-2007 03:17 PM by frank | 5 comments »

More Safety, Chainsaw….Broadax Well that’s it….LOL ....I’m not able to blog my story I had thought to put in here this morning, since I was looking through the forums and I saw a question asked about; “If you where a hand plane?”! This got my mind to turning and so where I was going to go with “Slabbin’ at Wood” is out the door for today. Also let me say that I need to go and set up some photo jigs, so that I can also take some pi...

"Colors of a Walkabout" --by RusticWoodArt

09-25-2007 01:33 PM by frank | 5 comments »

Colors of a Walkabout ....okay, lets take some time out today,and get away,into the forest of green wooden inlay…. So today we are going to slip away from chainsaws and slabbin’ at wood, where in order to stay sharp, I’ve decided to go on a ‘walkabout’. Grab your hiking boots and we’ll pick up a stout walking stick along the way, leave your cares back at my doorstep, while we pass the time of day with the beauty of wood. Greenest of greens overwhel...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #3: "Slab Wood Tales" --by RusticWoodArt

09-24-2007 02:16 PM by frank | 12 comments »

Slab Wood Tales ....in the working of the wood, the stories of those who came before me, are revealed as enlightened nuggets of wisdom, where ‘ancient ones’ give thanks by offering to tell me their tales…. So today I thought I would travel some ground….or is that lay some ground work here and post some pictures. I’m going to throw in a plug here and say thanks to Zooomr for all their work that they have done, and have made available to all. Using this site ...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #2: "McCulloch Super 33" --by RusticWoodArt

09-23-2007 02:30 PM by frank | 2 comments »

McCulloch Super 33 In writing this story about “Slabbin’ at Wood’, I have thought to include stories on: 1. Safety a) ....and you will hear me talking off safety till you probably get sick of the ‘safety’ word. However with and when working with chainsaws, I am a believer that safety first on the job, will likewise take you home safely at last! b) ....I was also taught that the average audience when being talked to will need to hear the point you are m...

"Slabbin' at Wood" #1: "Work Smart, Work Safe and Live to Work The Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

09-21-2007 07:06 PM by frank | 8 comments »

Work Smart, Work Safe, and Live to Work The Wood ....so where does it all begin, this thing I call slabbin’ at wood? What must one do? I’m sure we all know the how-when-where-why questions, and so after coming to terms with questions and answers such as these….one then goes out and sharpens their ability on the learning curve of belief. Now one may ask about the word ‘belief’, and rest assured we all believe in some-thing and in this case our belief of beli...
