I was half way thru an 18" thick, or so fallen gum when all of a sudden, I am covered in wet stinky stuff, first thought was critter blood, guts n pee, but not thick enough, and anyway, it began pouring out, and I got a good soaking. Tree hollow with old bee hive, then filled with 50-60 or more lts of water, just sitting stagnant in the trunk till I cut into it. Yeah it takes off the bar lube pretty quickly, and no, bees wax didnt help. Left quite the mud puddle to work in, which seemed to attract the interest of the bees as I continued, but they were more interested in having a drink than bothering me. Edited to add, btw, nice saw 2strokenut, is that a newie ?
