Is this why they got you an electric chainsaw, blue up?

PS love the chainsaw, you may be constrained with the cable, and ecb should prevent death by electrocution. I'm convinced that the caravan circuit breaker saved the life of gingerette last year when she decided to wash the kettle in the sink If you move up to a petrol model, avoid McCulloch's as they are a pile of sh*te.

Very nearly slipped onto mine last year, so they do deserve a healthy dose of respect. I believe that femoral artery injuries are the cause of death they favor.

They do, however, make a lovely pile of logs

for his birthday maybe she's buying him a training course in how to use it

Chainsaw Training with Phil Dunford : Welcome to Phil's Chainsaw Training Website

if a wife of mine bought me a chainsaw I'd be worried about what she was was hoping was going to happen

If a wife of yours bought you a chainsaw, I'd be fairly sure of what to do with the other two wishes.

All joking apart, the key to a happy relationship with a chainsaw is similar to that with a wife.

Go at it with gusto, but always' gentle, let her take control, and try and keep it to the hilt, unless you want to get bitten.

Sawing log's should feel like a hot knife through butter, if it doesn't something is wrong.

You look like you're cutting trees down, watch it doesn't snag and kickback. Wedges or a mate with a rope may help.

Those little farty one's could probably be tackled with a decent bow saw.

Anyway, f'ck it I'm going to bed.... here's a picture of the chief log collector

Merry Xmas

Yes he's a star, Tatton Park tomorrow, a brisk 5 miler, a pot of Earl Grey at the Hall, many sticks to be thrown in the Mere, and a pint on the way home.

Can it get much better?

Oh yeh, and a turkey Madras and "Point Break" for supper.

Chain Saw safety gear....Levi's, boots, gloves, and Sun glasses....and 24 hour avoidance of drink....two minutes of meditation prior to pulling on the rope. Usually followed by twenty minutes of pulling on the rope and cussing all things Scandanoovian or German. If i wish never to have to work with a Chainsaw....I go out with the Poulan....lead pipe cinch the bastard thing will not start or if it does....will not run. Thus...it has to be the safest Chain Saw on the market.

One thing none of them do worth a darn is cut barbed wire fencing!

Sans Chaps....do let the chain stop before resting the saw on your leg....saves on Levi's.

No HSE toady here.....and still have all my component parts. Did scare myself silly a time or two....needing to look down but afraid to do so thinking what I would not see.



Max looks like my Mortimer.....God but I really do miss that Critter. He was smart enough to open a door....but not smart enough to stay out of the road at night.

Occasionally we get a brown wandering through the garden and when we had outside cats lost at least 1 to a snake.

I asked for, and received, three hippocrits, amazing creatures, one day they're out wallowing in floodwater and wailing about climate change, the next they're out in their 4wds chauffering their baby hippos to schoool.

gingernut It says something good about a man when he puts festive lights on his log store (see post #26).

Can we see a pic of yer shed - assuming it is similarly decorated?

Darrell Lea has been bought out by a very savvy business family but they say not all product lines are profitable (some cost more to manufacture than they made in profit, but they still kept making them ). Hopefully the puddings will survive, along with the white rocky road.

For Christmas I got a Le Creuset saucepan, a tablecloth and a mandolin slicer. Female equivalent of a chainsaw and none of them can take your arm off. Well, maybe the slicer...
