Re: A Theory on Crosscut Saw Certification

If you enter into a Challenge Cost Share or a Participating Agreement, rather than a Volunteer Agreement, you should be able to utilize your organization's own insurance. There is usually a requirement that you provide "training" to your sawyers, but they don't require it to be S-212 or equivalent.

Response to "A Study of Crosscut Saws..."

I recently came across an article in a national publication, entitled "A Study of Crosscut Saws or Power Saws for Trail Clearing by Dan Applebaker”. I'm not sure how many others have seen the article, but it can be found at the very end of the newsletter here http://www.bcha.org/media/uploads/2015/1...

Ohlen Bishop No. E 492 NE

This is an Ohlen Bishop one man saw I just filed for a friend. It has a great logo that didn't get picked up in the photo very well. It includes a big eagle with outstretched wings and the words "AMERICAN EAGLE" above it. Made in Columbus, Ohio. This saw was 4 1/2' long, Lance Tooth, and very slight...

Re: setting cutter teeth

Josh, When I used to set with the saw horizontal, I would go through the whole under side of the saw with a spider and a sharpie and mark which teeth needed more (/) set, less (\) set, or set properly (X). Then hit and check a few to get a feel for how much they move, then run through the whole saw,...

Re: Lubricant

I run into a lot of different soft woods and always carry a small squirt bottle of diesel. WD-40 works fine, but I don't like to carry an aerosol can around. A little 4oz squirt bottle of lube really helps the sawing go faster and smoother, and keeps your saw clean. I recommend it. I've used citrus ...

Re: Fleam angle suitable for Great American?

Not many of us have much experience with great american tooth patterns. Finish the saw and let us know what you find out.
