Topic tags/keywords: humor tip circular saw sawstop

I’m not promoting SawStop here, not really a fan of theirs, but when you see this guy using his “circular saw” in the first part of this video, I think you’ll agree he probably should consider getting one.

Wow ! That dude is definitely old school. My Dad had pictures of guys cutting firewood on the Prairie back in the 1940’s or so using this sort of technology but I thought we’d moved on !

I’m not a fan of SawStop either, and holding the log on each side of the blade when cutting does not look like a safe thing to do.

Kinda makes you queasy just thinking about it. If he keeps doing it that way he may end up only half the man he was when he started.

My grandpa had something like that. It ran off of a large belt driven by a pulley on a tractor. He used it to cut firewood that he got from a lumber mill. Mainly sap wood thins with bark on it. He could cut a lot of wood in no time at all.

Well, you gotta admit that the guy still has all his fingers, but it sure made me cringe.

I don’t think there is a tractor attachment for a sawstop yet. Though I’m not sure splitting those logs with an axe instead wouldn ‘t be at ton safer.. he must also have a reallllllly small fire place.
