I sent our blade to a saw shop in Henniker N.H.,He did a great job of sharpening,setting and joining the teeth.He has some amazing sharpening equipment that was imported from Germany.Fun to watch,he was @ the logging expo in Essex JCT. Vt.a few years back.

Do you have a name and/or contact info?  The gentleman that last filed my blades passed away a few years back.


Peter, your rig will do well with the narrower slabs, but you'll get tired of flipping the wider ones to finish the cut.

Good question Dave, I don't know what model it was. This was 35 years ago  when I got the engine it had no carb. I had to modify a updraft carb to fit it. It worked well on the saw as the heavy flywheels would carry it through a big piece. It was a make and break because under load it would fire and coasting every few turns. Its long gone I forget where it went after that I had a total regression to steam. Frank C.

^There you go...
That, or build it like a slab saw where the blade/arbor pass over the slab, rather than the slab moving into the middle of the blade more or less in line with the arbor.

Thanks 47.

The table on most saw rigs pivots from near the base on an arc to the center of the saw. If you have the table tilt up in the back or have a wedge in back it will allow a wider board or slab to be cut. I built a table on rollers that slid straight into the saw worked ok but I like the swinging table better. Bigger is better in a saw, too small and limits what you can cut but the larger saw needs more power. Frank C.

Chinese 6.5 Hp engine, tungsten tip saw blade, the dad in law made a sliding clutch system to tighten up the two v-belts. Works better than I thought it would.
