Do three-saw plans still exist on here?

    Seems like every time I turn around another case of CAD bites. I guess we'd all love to have a fleet of tools to choose from but sometimes that isn't realistic. I've been pretty good about unloading my extra purchases and repair jobs (so I can try new ones), but I keep coming back to a three saw plan.

    50cc / 16"
    75cc / 24"
    94cc / 32"

    Does anyone else try to adhere to the three saw plan? If so, are you a 50cc/ 60cc/ 70cc, or a 70cc/ 90cc/ 120cc? Are we now moving to 5 saw plans? Anyone getting by with a one, or two saw plan? If so, are you just cutting firewood with a 60cc saw, or doing falling and storm cleanup too? Anyone notice that as they get older the saws are getting smaller? Speak up!

    I use a 3 saw plan usually for firewood bucking. 562, 70x2. Sometimes there's an 85-95 tossed in for good measure

    Although I take several saws to the woods, I rarely change saws. 70cc/24" is what I like.

    This is what I use if I'm actually trying to get something done. Have many saws just for messing around.

    I was quite happy with my 3-saw plan of 346 NE with 18" and .325, 357 with 20" and 3/8, and 372 XPW running a 24", all bone stock. Then I got bit by a little CAD and you can see the results in my sig.
