Is this saw cutting well

Post by dayle1960 » August 5th, 2017, 3:03 am

Mr. Chickadee (Josh) has a YouTube website and is using manual tools to build a house in the hills of Tennessee. The video I'm highlighting shows Josh using a one man bucking saw to cut a scarf joint into sill plate. The part I want you fellows to watch starts at the 2:00 minute mark. I cannot tell if the saw is producing dust or curls. The saw looks well maintained yet I'm not certain it's working properly. ... kjf-J90lue

The saw seems to cut well in single buck mode and is throwing small chips. It has straight rakers which are more likely to break up noodles. I don't think he was going for speed on those joints, he wanted accuracy.
