OK, getting down the basics of cutting the tree — I was window shopping chainsaws yesterday, and one of the blurbs touted the fact that the buck-somethings were metal. Whooopee. So, I found them on the saw — they were those jagged pointy teeth-things sticking out of the front next to the bar. What are these, and what do they do?
Truth be told, most of my chainsawing will be for firewood, but we have a couple of small apple trees that might evolve into jewelry boxes or sump’in.
PS: The reason I’m buying a chainsaw is because my sweetie keeps killing his, a good-sized gas-powered thing. Is this normal? Is it normal to have burn marks on the surfaces that were cut. Does he need remedial chainsawing lessons, or just a sharper chain?
