    Next year, we need a few competition logs! Can be either a long log with a sawyer on each end, or a filmed single end to compare cut times.

    Still think that was one of the most impressive saws there.

    I'll have to get in contact with @Totembear or @MGoBlue see if they can give me a hand making some cants for next year. If I have all year I should be able to get it done.

    Wow. That 5105 was impressive!!!
    As was the 7910.
    The wood looked like it was petrified! Nice job.

    That log was to separate the men filers from the boy filers. @Dahmer said he found some T-Rex sh!t in the one cookie. :crazy2:

    I bet. I have cut many of those Oaks like that...when the bark falls off and you smack it with the Ax poll, you get a good idea of just how hard they really are...

    Nothing like the Aussie hard wood, but hard for USA.

    That was a 3 stem Oak that was shaped like a Chevron.

    Any update on how Zogger is doing?

    On the positive side: Fingers crossed he is done with treatment. Tests this week will show if the successive rounds of chemo and radiation got everything.

    On the negative side: He’s still too weak to work, he’ll need to use a feeding tube for several months, and he’s saddled with a high 5 figure bill for medical treatments that insurance/assistance didn’t cover.

    Im stihl catching up here but that 500i has my attention. There isn't much that makes me want to buy a new saw but I think I might have one of those one day.

    Thank you for that Fiskars, I'm guessing it is an early one! Seems identical to an X-27, but is not so marked, and has an all black handle and a different edge protector. I like having oddball stuff, like my mini 14 that has the wood top barrel protector (all the newer ones have vented plastic). It will be used!

    That 9010 was nice in the big wood, as was that Scarr 395.

    I was also very impressed with the MOFO Hybrid with the Dall chain on it.

    Real nice to be able to run all different stuff.

    As the old saying goes, "There is more than one way to skin a cat"!
