    They want a picture to preserve for history.
    No doubt, there are some out back, behind the old barn, buried in weeds and long forgotten.

    I can go down to my Father In-laws and take a picture of a stump saw from the early 50s that is similar to what you are describing -- it was a commercially made saw that would rotate from vertical to horizontal (we called it the widow maker saw) it does not have a car engine but about a 5hp Br.St. engine.
    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Sounds like what I've heard called a stump grinder. I wonder if a stump saw and stump grinder are the same thing?

    Sent to you Frank via email -- you should have it.

    Stump grinder and saw are two very different things.
