The availability of reasonably light weight chain saws put the end to most of these saws. It is easier to bring a chain saw to the wood than to carry all the uncut wood to a stationary buzz saw.

Is there a rocking or sliding table that goes with the blade? All the ones I've seen/used for cutting fire wood had some sort of table to hold the wood, then feed it into the saw.

My great-grandfather lost his eye sharpening fence posts. A piece came back from the saw and got him in the eye. He pulled and it all came out! OUCH!! They worked great and you always kept your thoughts on the job at hand and nothing else.
As long as we are telling stories and talking about fence posts. My grandfather told me of the story of a man who lost his hand the painful way. They had the fence post on a trailer. One man stood on the trailer and handed down the post to anther man, who held the post. The man on the trailer would swing the maul and drive the post in. Well the man on the ground didn't move his hand from the top of post soon enough and with one quick swing it was a bloody mess. That rates at least to be a double OUCH!!!

yes it is :P

There is no tilting table for it, that is a home made rig, and while it looks crude works quite well, as long as you always keep your mind on what you are doing.

Dad always stressed wearing safety glasses when when sharpening posts with it. they were different than the ones of today, just a pair of glasses with a thick lens. They were scratched, etc. and I didn't like them, but wore them. One day a splinter was flung off the saw which hit the right lens end on and broke into a bout 3 pieces against it. Sure didn't need any reminders after that. I still remember the sight of that big splinter heading for my eye.

Truly the world is becoming more safety conscious and just to survive in the past required taking more risks than many of us are accustomed to today but that thing is just plain evil looking. The only thing missing from that picture is Nell and Dudley Do Right!

The "Ring" of a woodsaw on a cool morning brings back many pleasant memories. Yes, a chainsaw is easier to use by yourself, but a three man crew can block a heck of a lot of wood with a cut-off saw.
I still love to use one.
Best,

In the past we all were more responsible for our own safety and had to keep our brains in gear. Times are changing for sure. When we do something stupid it is usually someone else's fault. :( Can you say McDonald's coffee?

That saw can cut a lot of wood safely when run by someone who is accustomed to paying attention. :shock:

Amen to that. We had a lot of wood form a local sawmill that they had intended to use for an experimental pallet mill, but had abandoned the project. 4 foot long pieces varying from 8 to 12 inches in diameter. In stacks at 3 different farms. A crew of 4 cut about 8 chords of wood with that one day, including moving to the different farms. Dad fed the saw, 2 others brought sticks to him and supported the end if needed and I threw away from the saw. I was a lot younger and stronger then and, about 30 years ago.

If anyone wants a closer look at that setup, I plan to bring it to Cubarama, but I do NOT plan on a working demonstration with it. due to health problems I am not stable enough to work around it, and am not willing for anyone else to take the risk.

It's good to hear we speak the same langauge. It was a proud day for me when I was big enough to "Throw Away" from the saw. I couldn't keep up long, but it was a step toward manhood.
We hauled slabs from an abandoned sawmill and blocked them with a saw belted to dad's JD "A". My uncle, dad, and grandad worked the saw and "Threw Away" into the wood shed.
I loved to hear the long belt slap when the governor opened on the A with a dull blade in a heavy stack of slabs.
Best,
Mike

As scary as they look I'm still interested in picking one up one of these days. Looks like it would work nicely on the land in Vt - 20 acres that is mostly forested. If anyone knows of one for sale let me know. The one I'm thinking of has a stand setup behind the tractor.
I might be able to trade something for one, just brought home another trailer load of goddies last night. I'll post some pics when I get them sorted out.

George,
Had I been more safety conscious in the past I might not have this piece of painted, polished glass sitting where my left eye used to be, nor this chainsaw scar on my right shin, nor the surgery scars on my left elbow and right shoulder nor the .....

I wish I could blame these things on someone else, but I must take responsibility - I took risks and I got caught. Now I spend as much on safety equipment as I do on tools - well I spend more on safety equipment than I used to! Now, I think I'll head to McDonald's for a cup of coffee - good thing I've got the emergency room on speed dial!

Mike:

Those sentiments are true. The hum of a well oiled saw table and the ching of freshly filed teeth biting into some maple or birch is really sweat. And never mind what a 3 man team can do.. you should see me and my 4 girls go..... you can cut a lot of wood in a very short time.. 2 days 12 long cords.. and most of it moved to the house as well :!:

I bought a new chain saw, but that is for cutting the logs into 4 foot ... I only use my saw table to cut the wood for the furnace..
