Looking for a very large circular saw

Recommended Posts

My father had to have his thumb stitched on again using a saw bench similar to that.


Could have been worse, my father told me a story of a bloke using one who had the bright idea to convert it from belt drive to PTO.

The higher revs caused the blade to overheat, split a chunk off and (owing to higher centripetal force) sent it into his skull.

Thank you for all the replies . I have been using poplar this week for kindling 4-6 inch stems. I am thinking now the smaller stems have smaller branches and therefore small knots . Also younger stems are softer and easier to split . Maybe a decent wood processor would be good to cut up to 12 in ch stems

Makita 5402NA 16-5/16-Inch Circular Saw is the best option i ever used. It has more efficiency to work!!

Another Harris! Nice. :) 

 

I'm planning on buying a 5402NA for (hobby) Timber Framing if I can ever find a used one over here, most likely a makita 5143r.
