Chainsaws / Re: Pick me a 90cc and up CC chain saw.

« Last post by mike_belben on Today at 09:23:35 AM »
Ive never run a big stihl, but ive had my 395 for about a decade and NEVER had to work on it. Ive never changed the plug and only tweaked the screws a time or two. I think i greased the clutch bearing one time when i changed sprockets.  Thats it. Its my big felling saw, big firewood saw and lumber milling saw so it gets its share of action.  I will never part with it.  Every time the wind clangs a piece of tin at 3am, i grab the 12G and run straight to the shed where my girls live to be sure theyre still tucked in. Daddy wont let em hurtcha babies.

My problem is when loading some of the non cant cut boards back on the bunks for edging there is sometimes little support from the angled side supports. At the front I added extra pipes with wood clamp slides and welded extra extensions  to the face to raise them to the height of the back bunk squares.  This will give me about 1 inch of clamp to the bottom of the cant and is safely below the blade.  The back side is where the blade wants to angle off.  On the hydraulic mills are the heights of the side supports adjustable?  Do any use pipe here shorter pieces?

Very nice!
By the way is the spruce coming back at all up there?
When I hunted moose in 72 there was lots but by the time I went again in the 90s it was all but gone.

Welcome Buzzbox, glad to have you here.
For chainsaws, I suggest you look to find the 3 brands that look best to you, then ask questions. The final choice should be related to the dealers near you. The best brand and model going is a lot less desirable if you don't have nearby Dealer Support. Also, if you buy from a big box store and need service they generally send them out to someone contracted to do repairs. The issue there is that the dealer contracted does HIS customers before even looking at your saw.

I will definitely talk about taking level 2 but I am going to get a little more level 1 behind me.

only bad thing about the whole deal is bill slid off the driveway when he was shuttling ppl up. Have a little bit of repair work to do to the yard in the spring. oh well. its only mud :)

Glad you had a good class, Bill does a first class job. One of the very best instructors I have even met in any discipline. I am scheduled to take a class with him (level two) this Saturday, but hurt my lower back big time yesterday and can hardly walk now. Hope i can make it, I have been waiting 8 months.

Very nice work. What did you use for the finish?
I used a water based stain and six coats of gloss lacquer buffed to a semigloss/satin sheen.

I finished last night, no printer so I had to figure a way to put the puzzle in a drawing program so I could circle the words as I found them.

Last time I tried milling frozen logs in cold weather the heat from the blade warmed the sawdust coming out of the cut...then it promptly refroze all over the mill rails.  How do you guys that mill in the cold deal with that?
Now that's a winter sawing problem. Sounds like half frozen logs, the worst. Circle or band.

Nice work!

I have used tamarack for decking but never tried woodworking with it, any issues with twisting?
I air dried it for about three months then inside in a controlled environment for two months.  Some pieces twisted a little but after jointing and planing there seems to be no issues
