BIG chainsaw bar
« on: December 19, 2014, 09:12:07 AM »
I'm planning on building a slabbing mill and need a chainsaw bar to work my plans around. I need a minimum of a 4', but would prefer a 5' bar. I'm not using a chainsaw to power it, so it doesn't matter what it comes off of.
Thanks in advance,
Allan

Ive seen guys split logs with a long bar that they had welded together.  They cut 2 bars and made one.  It worked well, if youre handy it may save a few bucks.

Thanks. I actually pondered that exact thing, but didn't know how well it would work. Figuring it would only have to work long enough to try things out, it might be worth a shot and miles cheaper than a new bar.

I built mine with a 36,  not big enough .  I run a jackshaft,  it has been a problem at times, as is the belt life is short, and my electric clutch can irritate me. if you have the budget, buy the parts to run directly off the motor!
