18TH CENTURY LIVING HISTORY, HISTORICAL TREKKING, AND LONG TERM SURVIVAL.
I've been on one end of those things a few times. AKA misery whips. I love my chain saw!
I still have one of the one man crosscut saws with a handle on one end and a post on the other end. My Father & I used to use one of these to cut all our firewood for the open fires in our 18th century family home when I was a kid.But these days I mostly use my chainsaw too!We cook on a wood fire and use a wood fire for heating in the winter. The cook fire also heats our water. So we go through a good deal of firewood.
My experience with the crosscut saw was clearing deadfall and down trees from trails in designated Wilderness Areas where power tools aren’t allowed. Trees 2 to 3 feet in diameter. I partly heat my home and cook with wood too, but with a wood stove instead of an open fire place.
I've got a new one and three old ones. I wouldn't want to earn a living with one, but threre are certain times they come in handy. I still use my Stihl chainsaws for serious work, though.BTW, is there any way to download that PDF?
Gorges, top left corner of the PDF there should be a save and print options.
