Hey, anybody watching Ax Men?
I watched it a couple of times. I thought it would be good, and I AM
interested in the whole logger thing, but I found that after 5
minutes, I'd seen everything that was going to be shown and got bored
out of watching it anymore. Same for that Dangerous Catch show. A
bunch of my friends thing that is the greatest show on TV, but I don't
get it. Boring.
You are correct. But watching big treees flip off the stump is still cooler
than another cage of crab. Or that guy cutting out a huge top. I've got some
serious respect for that shit.
And what's with all of those damned car customizing and car auction
shows on SPEED all the time? You telling me there isn't a race
SOMEWHERE that can be shown? The only thing worse than that is that
stupid "Pinks" show. Man, do I really have to watch TV to see grown
men whine and cry like little girls?
I dropped Speed last year. I was just spending too much on media and not
enough on real life.
I checked out a new blade a few minutes ago across the street at
Sears. That blade had tapered teeth, so they would get shorter as
sharpened - and quickly with the power sharpener. The blades I'm
running don't have nearly the taper of what I looked at today. If you
wanted to take down the rakers, you'd have to do it by hand. Most of
the serious guys use chains that don't have rakers anyway, and the
ones that use the cheaper chains file the rakers out of the way before
they even use it. I didn't bother, but it would be short work with a
Just right height is good so the saw doesn't bog down. Hot rod saws maybe
don't need them.
Speaking of which, I saw a cool tool today while at Sears. It's a bi-
directional saw - looks like a grinder, but has twin blades (6 1/2", I
think) that are situated and rotate in opposite directions. I can't
figure out what it's used for, but I want one.
Seen that. Total gimmick. Maybe pretty good for demolition. I see no use for
it in precision work. Cool marketing coup though.
