Vintage Sawing and Ax Videos

Post by Jim_Thode » April 17th, 2015, 8:58 pm

I posted a couple old training videos. I believe the saw video is from the late 1940's based on the two man chainsaw. The ax video is likely the same time frame.

The Sawyers: Vintage crosscut and early chainsaw felling and bucking video from about 70 years ago. Sawing using traditional crosscut saws and a Disston Mercury two man chainsaw. Shows good sawing techniques for the crosscut saw. 25 minutes. At:
