Nice pics mang!
Yes +1 on the saw horse.
Is that an old radio flyer in the shed like those.
I think its a knock off but I've had it since I was a little fella. We use it in lieu of a wheel barrow sometimes =P
A little trailwork this week (finally). Got to use my new True Temper Flint Edge Connecticut. Worked real nice. Not much chopping to do but did find one.
I can say this much... I never got this much satisfaction from using a chainsaw.
More chopping this weekend. Tried out my R. King Tool Steel (early Collins) axe. Did well but not as good as the True Temper Flint Edge. This hemlock was 15" at the widest point.
Now that's what we like to see, some real chopping.
Felt good, didn't it?
Peg - it did.
New project from my neighbor. Unknown maker - Kentucky pattern axe. 3 marked on it. Got it yesterday, cleaned up, sharpened, hung it and test drove it.
I may have to borrow this for a while.
Nice cooperhill :thumbup:
a little off topic as per the OP, but this is how i use a stihl
of course it usually gets split after, i just dont have pics of that aspect
Got my LaClair Shrew Hawk back out today to try out my quickie homemade handle. It wasn't perfect but it made short work of this tree that had been partially blocking the trail...
Yes - I see the poison ivy.
Can't argue with the results. Ya done good! And thanks for clearing the trail.
Mike, that's bad ass. Be careful up there, Man!
I watched an arborist work last summer. I can safely say I would not want to do that, crazy stuff. Had a lot of fun limbing and "reducing" the downed sections of the crown though. I also file some crosscut saws for an arborist. those climbers are an interesting bunch for sure.
Someone with this axe
Tell us more about the Roselli
That is a cant hook, for rollong and moving logs for cutting them up
helps keep your saw out of the dirt
A little trailwork this weekend.
Now that's putting an axe to good use!
Nicely done, some sweat on that one I bet. Wish I was there.
Thanks Square and Peg. Some blisters as well. Hoping to get some good calluses soon.
Found the axe wasn't biting well enough. Some glances. Might need to trim the profile a wee bit and re-sharpen.
Some proof that it is really me chopping these blowdowns.
This is this past April near the New York/Pennsylvania border. Me and Charo. I don't remember what I was chopping.
