Re: New to this

It's a plier style set, but its built specifically for a CC saw. its really beefy and its set up different. Works well for me.

Re: New to this

For me- a jointer, files, feeler gauge, something flat (used with feeler to check raker depth), big plunger set and honing stone. Just with those things I can make a saw run good enough.

Re: Setting Up a Perforated Lance Tooth Saw

I'm no expert, but I imagine you want a lower raker and less set. Less set= less material removed and faster cutting. lower raker will allow the teeth to bite deeper. Thats how I understand it anyway.

Re: Axe

I have a norlund, I don't use mine much. The faces are ground flat parralel to the edge (this article explains it well: http://axeconnected.blogspot.com/2011/05/notes-on-ax-head-geometry-part-2-of.html) which results in more sticking and less chip throwing. I have a few 2.25 pounders and a 2.5 pound...

Re: Relationship between saw length and log diameter

I have to second the no bind situation. Getting a bowsaw stuck is no fun at all. That said I have more bowsaws than crosscut saws, and if you have the set up right they are really efficient. going into the woods though, I prefer a crosscut and axe as I can effectively underbuck and chop if necessary.

Re: Advice for Novice

You could email Jim Talburt at Jim's crosscut saws (http://www.jimscrosscutsaws.com/). I think he usually stocks a few. Don't know about his prices. Another thing that might be handy is a good bowsaw. Bahco makes the best ones these days. Their 30" or 36" would be handy for smaller diameter stuff, 8...

Re: Chips in oak

Glad to see other people brave enough to cut stove wood with a hand saw. I cut a few cords a year with a CC and axe. I enjoy every minute of it. Maybe it's drudgery, but I don't pay mind to those types of folks who are in a rush all the time.

Re: Leveling and Tensioning

Thanks for posting this. I do have a question, what is rolling the saw? I've never heard that term before.

Re: Filing a Disston 191 with Plain Teeth

Every plaintooth i've ever seen has had the same bevel angle on each side of the tooth. I have a warrented superior plain tooth that I don't think was ever sharpened and it's teeth were set up like that. I went over and sharpened it the same way and I like how it cuts.
