I'm afraid not.  >:(  I've been to busy working at my real job to have time to  do much on the saw. Hope to get it cranking next week and a video made as well.

Finally got back to working on the swing saw. Have had it running, doing some milling and adjusting. I've learned the holders for the side to side and swing handle aren't going to cut it. I wound up using a pair of vice grips to keep it from moving while I was adjusting.
I'm in the process of making a positive stop/pin to correct this problem.
There is a bit of dancing sideways while making a horizontal cut. It seems to be less with the engine speed up a bit.  Still haven't ran it full out yet. I've gone back to watching videos of some of the other saws, and most of them seem to have a bit of sidewise movement. Is anyone aware of problems in this area and what to do about it???   


Glad to see you back on your project.   smiley_thumbsup

Any updates to share Leroy?  Can't wait to see a video of this thing in action.


Hey Leroy,
Just checking in to see how the project is going. Ive got mine placed in my building and the compurter stuff connected but strung a leak on the radiator after sawing a few boards & once it was replaced it was time to go offshore.
