I’m not a Youtube member so I’ll comment here. All of your videos are extremely informative. Thank you for producing them.

Regarding the chainsaw problem: here in the U.S. most of our regular gasoline has about 10% ethanol in it. If you use it in a chainsaw, it will eventually burn it up. We have to buy the more expensive premium gasoline with no ethanol added.

That is a great video, thank you for sharing it.
I was actually wondering how people freehand cut boards while I was doing a bunch of logging the other day :) Makes me really want to try it out now.

Have your say...
