    I want one of THESE!

    I spent the last six days on Vancouver Island, visiting my son and his wife, and my new grandson. While there I visited the BC Forest Centre museum, and got a look at some real tools:

    This is said to be the largest circular saw in the world. It has 100 teeth, and I would estimate its diameter at 9'.

    They have an extensive collection of chain saws, including more than one two-handed model, like this.

    That circle saw blade "ought to do it" as was said in the Sundance Kid movie.

    Thanks for showing.

    Enjoy,

    You want one of what? The outhouse!?!

    That is a couple of monster cutting devices you have there.

    I was thinking the cross cut saw aka misery whip on the table above the chainsaw. Although that drag saw on the floor behind it would be right handy as well...

    Yeah, I used to own that circular saw blade, but the table saw I had it in was too tall to use. I mean seriously, did you ever try to run lumber through a 12' high table saw? What a pain!

    Amazing stuff!

    A friend of my uncle had an old McCulloch Model 99 two man saw.

    Like this, six foot bar, and when that thing started up, boy you knew it was running!

    When I was looking for a longer bar for my new Makita electric chainsaw I found that Cannon still makes a bar with a handle on it.

    A long time ago I had the pleasure of cutting off some old wood pilings using an air powered, 2 man, underwater chainsaw.
    It was in about 10-15 feet of water. We cut them off at the seabed level.

    Once you turned on the air you could not see much because of the bubbles. You both got positioned as best you could and as secure as possible, then hang on.

    It is amazing either of us game away with all body parts.
    Actually it worked pretty good.
