 Hi Cary, I know I have spun a few yarns in my time, but this one is for real, honest.
  If you look close you can see the chain turning. I took several others but saved only the most dangerous looking one. Gord did not know he was being photgraphed and it was cold out, hence the hood.

 I will take mort pictures and a video so you know this isn't BS. Anyway, here's a scan of the pic. Gord wanted a copy.
 You bunch of "Doubting Thomas's" . (I typed lol instead of using a Forestry Forum smiley, whats wrong with me?) Remember fact is stranger than fiction.

The Stihl 011 is a bit dated, but at 2.5 HP that saw will really move a 14" loop of chain.  Keep your chains sharp, & have a back-up.  Husky has some pretty good chainsaw use instructions on their website.

For heaven's sake stop him. Somehow you could design a clamp to hold the wood so at least he can use 2 hands on the saw. NEVER cut with one hand and never use your hand to hold a piece being cut. Gord most likely wants to do all he can, but you did say he fathered 2 kids, THEY NEED THEIR DAD. Stop him and assist in improving the safety of what he wants to do. We would all be really hurt and saddened to hear he had a second accident and could no longer do anything for himself.
