Check it out around 13min mark. Wow! Not to mention the giant table saw at the end.

Very interesting video! I wonder what a new SawStop cartridge costs for that table saw?

I had to cringe a few times watching them roll the logs up the ramp. The one guy would stand right behind it. If the cables ever let go he would be a dead man. Another interesting thing is that the final sawing of the wood into boards all seemed to be done just by eye. No fence to set the thickness and he would just aim the piece and let the rollers fed it through. I wonder if some of the final pieces were beveled.

If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

Judging from the guy’s youtube channel he’s a pretty serious wood turner. I doubt he cares if the stock is four square as it’s probably all going to end up round.

My neighbors had a PTO driven saw that size, we used to cut firewood with it.

From the looks of it this is a process of obtaining wood as inexpensively as possible. The tree was free
and I agree with most of the process except I really cringed when both the chainsaw and the big
circular saw on the tractor started spitting dirt because the wood was not raised above the ground.
I would not mind getting the amount of good wood he has there for his projects.

Not sure if that is dirt or a huge pile of shavings. But I agree.

I have also see. Those pto driven blades. Narly looking things however the ones I have seen were only good for crosscutting.

Have your say...
