When I was in Colombia a few years ago I noticed the same.
Entire houses where every timber was cut with a chainsaw.
If you think about it it’s brilliant.
There’s definitely no electricity run to that dudes building site.
On top of that, he’s running an 070
Not a lite saw by any stretch of the imagination.
And treating it like a toy
I love it and yeah am really impressed.
Nice find man
You have to be "spot on" with the throttle and forward pressure using the top 1/4 of the tip like that along with both hands on the back handle !!
He's got skill to cut such straight boards steering the saw holding only the rear handle and not what you would call a light saw!
Hardnose bar as well, would be good to see his chain for ripping like that he knows what he's doing.
People always talk down on people from 3rd world countries, but sad thing is that they are way harder workers than most Americans. Lol
Thats awful flexible wood. Does it stiffen up when cured?
@USMC615 Hey Bub.......wanna jump in here?Rumor has it this is your area of expertise!
That's how it's suppose to work in theory anyhow...
Seen guys like this in Malaysia, they are incredibly skilled with a chainsaw!
It would when dried. it's a rainforest timber the moisture content when green would be very high.
No matter the country get two chainsaws together and they will race each other!
This would be hard work! hole logs going through as well who needs a break down saw!
The band saw bench doesn't even have trolleys a hob or rollers! but they are cutting short lengths I guess.
These two are guns at cutting timber the old fashioned way using man power impressive speed bet they could keep that up for an 8hr day.
Trolleys help the Bench man and Tailor out move around what they are cutting the longer the timber lengths get the harder it is to move the timber around without trolleys.
Quite the chain
If you cut to the chase using a chainsaw to cut lumber from a log is one hellva lot of work .Very labor intensive to say the least
Yes it is a lot of work and not every one in the world is as filthy rich as the people in north America who can just go out and buy a band saw mill.
Shoot i live in North American and can't run out and buy a band saw mill even a cheap Habor freight one.
I make do with my 20 OAL inch DIY mill on a chain saw. But I also am not needing enogh lumber to build a house either.
Our ancestors (not long ago) worked hard and probably smarter, thats how western civilization was built... Dont want to put 3rd worlders down but I know plenty of people in their 50th with worn out bodies working 12 hours a day to pay mortgages and taxes to feed the themself and everyone else living off welfare, and their numbers are growing.
Lets give them a HUGE thank you!
Sooo back to milling...
Now don't get me wrong because I've milled with a Mac 125 but never the less it's a lot of work .
It’s impressive that a 60 year old chainsaw design still cut so much wood in the world. Everywhere in the jungle around the world u will find Stihl 070
One might think these guys with there 070/090's braking down logs and cutting timber/lumber/boards whatever ya might call it are primitive in there ways?
So wrong! these guys actually know how to cut boards! the proper way!.
It's the clueless white western people with there version 3 mtron and lazer guided chain sharpening thingy and chainsaw mills that are clueless when it comes to cutting timber/boards the proper way yes you just read that right I said the proper way lol.
Chainsaw millers OMG they still be slabing off slabs with a chainsaw from the top to the bottom of a log the slow and wrong way OMG fail! lol.
But yeah keep on slabing logs top to bottom only to then get online asking why are my slabs checking so bad? ..
Hmmmm I wonder why sawmills have a braking down saw? that brakes the logs down before it's sent to a bench to be cut into timber/lumbar maybe it's so the timber is cut correctly? crazy I know?..
Don't shoot the messenger am just telling the truth on the matter
Here's a random vid I just found of a sawmill braking down logs (face cut) and in this case sending it to a multi rip.
I wonder why they roll the log and don't just slab it off like a chainsaw mill does?..
