    I appreciate the response Daniel. Am curious still why you nipped the sapwood. What where your thoughts/reasons for doing it?

    If you had simply asked about the corner cuts on page 2 we wouldn't be here on page 10... But you want to criticize, and you're still talking shit, like you know something!

    then don't come asking for my understanding.. Figure it out for yourself... I did! And its no big deal, pretty simple actually... learned from the school of hard knocks...
    I've been cutting trees since you were three years old.. That's given me plenty of time to make a lot of mistakes... And I learned from those mistakes.. Maybe... just maybe.. you can learn from yours too.

    I didn't sharpen the saw.. Barely used it.. Just showed up to put the tree on the ground.. Noticed it was cutting kind of funny.. Felt like it was biting pretty good sometimes, but not all the time.. Might be from the bar rails being off, or more likely a problem with the chain. I need to get some flat files... I haven't sharpened a chain in some time.. probably last year

    I'm trying to play nice, but I'm getting nowhere.

Two different things. Is your article still viewable somewhere ? Thanks

    starts on pg 8

    I just re-read the article.. it's actually a little embarrassing .. I've changed my techniques in some respects since then... worst thing about the article is the pictures. I didn't have a good one.. Palmer rightly pointed out that the mulberry hinge just blew up and really didn't hold .... I actually agreed with him on that one... I didn't argue with him when he definitely announced that the Germans had proved the tapered hinge is no good in holding against side leaners .... I would like to see the science... Still would...
