Fortytwos Chainsaw badge request
« on: May 27, 2017, 12:11:34 PM »
So, this picture is getting a month old or so now but since I had trouble finding the request link on my phone at the time I did the work I totally forgot about it. I spent a week at my parents/my summer home in the northern parts of Sweden and since there's woods on three sides of the place there is usually some sort of felling or clearing to do. The picture shows the aftermath of cutting up both two birches and some scraps for firewood. I know little about the saw in question despite probably being mine, but those questions are not always easy (or relevant) in a family.

The saw horse came with the house and is a bit of a weird one since the legs are too far apart for a single cut and too narrow for two.

The safety gear is probably better than what most would use but I really should get a new net for the helmet as well as trousers and boots for this kind of work. Locally there's also a chainsaw licensing programme available that everyone seems to recommend so that's another thing I'm thinking of.

You definitely should get some chainsaw pants (or chaps - they are cooler in warmer weather) and safety boots.  A good training program will help you use your chainsaw more efficiently and be safer (especially if you are felling any trees - even small ones can be dangerous in some circumstances).  I firmly believe a chainsaw is probably the most dangerous tool the average home handyman will ever have.

Indeed, especially since it's often used where there's a long way to hospital!
