Chainsaw drama

circular saw firewoodThe chainsaw is still having a power problem, which makes me wonder if I was wrong about having bad fuel in it last week?

Plan B is to use the miter saw to cut up some long and narrow pieces of walnut and box elder we've had laying around.

Using the chainsaw on these smaller pieces has always seemed like overkill to me and often resulted in some odd angles you have to hold the saw in which sometimes leads to having your chain touch the dirt...which is a very bad thing and causes the cutting portions of the chain to not cut as well.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to line up and cut these tiny logs into a decent pile of firewood.
