Hotsawing and Drag Sawing
....well, now I’m really letting the cat out of the bag….since there remains an-other part of me that some may not know about….I happen to also be a ‘gear head’!
Put a machine in front of me, throw in some wrenches and oil, so that my hands get the feel of that oil, add some smell of gasoline or better yet some nitro charged air and I’m lost in the world of more noise and get down with some monster machine horsepower….
Since I’m wood blogging here, with stories from the heart of the wood, I’ll try and contain myself to those articles of my profession, found in the abundance of noise and oil that comes from kickin’ the ‘gear head’ side of me with playing around at toolin’ with the chain saw.
I had the bad timing yesterday, to take one of my larger chain saws out of action, in the playing fields of ripping some slabs of maple, and now I’m in process of where is this going, and how much. So in the early hours of this Saturday morning, I’ll go meet with another Husky friend and we’ll try and sort out whats happening.
Meanwhile as I was searching for some information this morning, I came across some videos of some hot action chainsaws. So if you care about watching these courtesy of YouTube, well click and go. All I can say is, if you realy want to cut some firewood for the winter….well, watch and you see what I mean!
....and then here’s one that I also find quite amazing….watch this large pine come down….
And so the next time I go chainsawing, I’ll remember that some have a faster way of doing it!
