Chainsaw milling protective clothing
« on: June 05, 2021, 08:21:12 PM »
What protective clothing do you use during chainsaw milling?

I set logs on sawhorses and the mill is about at chest level.

Thanks for your input.

Chaps, kevlar gloves, helmet with face shield, steel toes, hearing protection. And remember that a sharp chain is a safe chain.

Safety Glasses, Hearing Protection and Gloves....
I like to do my milling at or below waist level, so I can see the end of the bar and add wedges to both sides. I don't think there's enough safety gear that would induce me to mill at chest level.....
They say the mind is the first to go; I'm glad it's something I don't use!
