    I guess everything might be covered. Gasp!

    Wait a minute. Is this how we welcome a new man on board the ship? I gotta think this over for 0.01 seconds...

    Well, that's one way to end a thread. Which one should the moderator knock out, post #23 or #27? I vote for deleting #27. Just MHO.

    Welcome Patrick.

    Great pictures of trail clearing. Need to see one with a crosscut saw on the tree w/the 362 pictured.

    I've got a bunch of two man crosscuts, felling and bucking. Do you take care of those too? Might have some sharpening questions........

    No don't take care of the crosscut saws. I have Dolly Chapman http://sharpcrosscut.com/ do it and this past year bought a nice 4 footer from her. One of our Rim Trail person has taken her classes and is doing well taking care of our crosscut saws. Some times it is easier to travel and carry a crosscut and a Katanaboy Silky saw.

    Thanks for the link to Dolly's website (bookmarked), lot of information there.

    I have PDFs of a couple of USDA manuals that are good for use and care of crosscut saws, respectively: 1) Chain Saw and Crosscut Saw Training Course Student’s Guidebook 2006 Edition. , 2) Crosscut saw manual.

    Welcome to A.S. I volunteer with several storm clean up volunteer groups, so always interested in perspectives on maintaining shared saws and equipment.

    Gotta know is talking Crosscut saws blasphemy and allowed here???

    I kind of like it at times, listening to the saw sing pulling it back and forth, while hearing the wood fibers ripping and tearing screaming apart. Too much sexy talk?

    Welcome PV
    I do clearing on the AT........
    I love when someone says one is down and you ask how big....
    “Oak about 50”......”
    I’ve learned seldom if ever is more than a 026 needed.
    As in the case of the “50” oak”....Single cut with the 026.........20” bar.

    Glad to see another member with an appreciation for crosscut saws. To know them is to love them and to love them is to file them. Dolly is a very good instructor.

    Wish I’d gotten my grandfather to show me how. Passed away when I was 8. He was born in 1885 and he and my dad heated the 13 room house in northern NY with a cross cut till grampa bought dad a Disston chainsaw in 48......he lived with us and I spent most of my days follow him around doing work on the house. Built in 1812.
    Glad to see another AT maintainer.

    A buddy took a video of me dropping a big red oak deadfall off the stump in slow-mo. Started with an undercut and made the top an offset to the drop side. The trail was in a steep canyon and had to be single bucked the whole way down. Saw was sharp but still took about a half hour to get it done. Kind of creepy how the wedges just slide down the face.
