This is still new to me! 

I don't seem to get much sawdust in my pockets. The piles are from part of a mornng to fetch the logs in the pile, and two afternoon sawing, with a claw breaking off the bed, and the generator acting again, in the end of the day. Lost about 3 gallons of coolant.  ::)

Me cutting, and the friend for who this was for, as a offbearer. 







It turns out that i can't cut less than 2 inches, for the final cut. The saw doesn't reach further down. I have may be one inch clearance with the claws.

Hi Everybody! 

Well, the GM gen set is going supposedly, and a new monster is coming. Way too big, i think.   144kw. But has low hours, less than 200. And i couldn't pass, as it's cheap. 






That will relieve stress of looking at the temp gauge all the time, and cringing when i hear the GM start.

Stuffed this ugly thing on the saw. 



It's local ash. I found the bullet in the other part. The part here is 13 inches or a smidge more, between the "knots" I was all set, washing up liquid in the tank, saw tensioned etc. I couldn't start the generator, ass one of the batteries of my Toyota is dead! Dang!

And, while i was at it, i have sawn a big poplar. 





This is the biggest diameter log i have put on the saw, so far. A good 20 inches, or more.

Thanks a lot DDW. 


Everybody. 

Just a drying question. 

The ash has been outside for at least three years. How much drying time do you think i need before i can use it?  Would have it been dried, it would have been sold by now.

Hello guys. 

Well, the new baby is home. Not in it's final spot, which needs clearing up. But it's here.   





The final spot will be where the tall stepladder is in the background. A friend insists on making a little concrete slab there.

Hi everybody. 

I have three electric claws, or log dogs. 

Spaced 9.5 fret appart. For 19 ft total clamped tree length. 

Do you think i need more? Bed is 40' useable length.

Thanks guys.

add one between the 9.5 foot clamps for short logs?
and one more 9.5 foot would be OK.

Thanks DDW_OR. 

Well, for the moment, for short logs, i clamp one end, and i have four mobile rests, with holes  in them, for wooden stops. So it doesn't move too much. 

I will make myself a wired "remote control" for the claws.  I have scavenged a 6 hole box, for 6 knobs. Open-close. Times three. That will make my life easier when squaring.

Well, first destroyed blade! 

This one was doomed! 

I reversed without raising the head once too many! 



 

It caught the front guards etc. I also have lost the second gear. I can only go slow. 

Mind you, the corded remote control is "genius" for me.
