    ive done something similar with a groove in a stump but thats much more refined, i dig it. except i file over the saw instead of in front of it. i also dont use such a long bar for a small tree like that, extravagant europeans!

    How do you like the GB bar? I was thinking of getting one or two from Bailey's.
    Love the GB bars, that is all I run nowadays.I buy a pallet of stuff from Baileys about once a year; bars, chain etc. With the low exchange rate on 4, chains only cost me less than a third of danish prices and bars are ½ price, good deal.
    BTW I think the Stihl bars they sell in the US are different from the european ones, I hear you guys raving about them, and the ones we get stink, frankly. They are worse than Oregon.

    Blinky, The tree is a maple ( acer pseudoplatanus) We only see ailanthus in gardens here.

    Sotc, I was falling with my 441 and 18" bar, when I cut the filing stand. I just wanted to show that it also works with bigger saws and longer bars, so you guys could use it.
    If I had had the 088 and 60" bar in the truck, I would have used that, just to prove the point

    must be a Euro thing Stiggy, I remember being taught that on my first felling course when I was 14, although I was taught to put a pulp hook under the body of the sawe. Its a usefull trick in the woods.

    No it just looks that way because you are seeing it from the flip side of the planet

    I just can't find a small enough stump to get that to work.
