How much do you suppose it's worth to him for us to not e-mail this thread to his wife and mom-in-law?  You can get the log-wizard from Baileys.  They really do work for most log projects.  Do up those notches, rip off the bark, and Trim up those knots real well too.  We used ours on a large log home from scratch, and as a pinch hitter for cleaning up dirty spots on logs in a small mill for a while driven by an 044 stihl.

I have used the log wizard and it works good once you get   the knack of it.

oddest debarker I've seen is an old spade with the point worn back so it was a curve that followed the shape of the log.asked the guy about it said it worked better than a peeling spud. I had to believe him since he was being paid by the linear foot and making good money.

That is about the way my log yard looks, at times.  How about anyone with a homemade debarker for the entire log.   I saw something one time with some using old tires to spin the log around while they were "warshing" off the crud.   I use a Karcher 3,000 psi+ to wash all of my logs, one at a time.  Jeff, I liked your picture but it is a bit larger than what I may be able to power.

Log Wizzard works ok but it gets alittle heavy. Sometimes the shovel is easier. I was wondering how it would work on an electric saw. Maybe a 3 1/2 hp remington.I put mine on a G B Titanium Bar, ruined a few drill bits installing it.
