I've heard about the 2 way saws. What keeps the blade from running off?  Harold

I have a neat one that Paul_H sent me that has some cool clips in it from the 50's was it Paul? I will try to get some ready. That takes me a lot of time because the machine I am using is not powerful enough to process it very fast. I usually crash a few times while trying to capture on sequence. This is one that I had captured a while back, but had not formatted for the web til today.

Young Forester, February 1962. Checking heavily used deer trail in wintering area (deer yard). Sault Ste. Marie Ranger District on the old Marquette National Forest, now the east side of the Hiawatha National Forest.

Marquette National Forest was renamed by Executive Order of President Kennedy.

No info on the river photo Ron. Many of these photos are from old Industry or government pamphlets from the first half of the last century. This next one comes from  Paul Bunyans Quiz; Questions and Answers about the Forest put out by the American Forest Products Industry in Washington. Circa 1950.
