    There are tons of videos of guys dropping trees of that diameter with saws like that. Whoever thought of framing that pic gets two thumbs up.

    Back in the day those saws were sometimes referred to as Misery Whips. I know I’d last maybe two strokes assuming I was still strong enough to actually pull it through a tree trunk.

    I guess they were getting ready to build a stretched version of that plane.

    Those giant teeth and that thin aluminum skin, not the right tool for the job.
    NOW you tell me...

    Why not? They use anchor chains to cut ships into. Staged photo for sure!

    "Cross-cut"...wait, aluminum has grain?!?
