My wife and I will be married 38 years this October. I can still taste the wedding cake !!!
16 years married coming up in May. 19 years together.
Keep it going Joe.
Been with this one since I was a senior in high school, 29 years ago. 3 kids later and now she wants to learn how to run a chainsaw? Makes me a bit nervous.
Did she take out insurance on you?
Probably, but she still needs me to start the saw for her, lol.
Still dangerous once you hand it to her!
Did She recently buy a shovel ?..
And learn about the PPE needed so she doesn’t lose a leg. LOL
I took an ArborMaster chainsaw class years ago. They made the comment that a chainsaw is not designed to “cut”, but remove material! Something to think about!
I thought about it.
Cut: 1.make an opening, incision, or wound in (something) with a sharp-edged tool or object.
2. divide into pieces with a knife or other sharp implement.
A chainsaw “cuts” by removing material
And removes it in a bad way when it comes to skin and bones.
…and FAST, it does remove it!
I bet “removing material” is a lot more painful than “cutting.” Just a hunch though.
From 1991 to 2002, I operated chainsaws a lot in Alberta, from cutting miles and miles of oilfield seismic lines to oilfield lease clearing, logging, etc.
One guy I worked with was wearing those thin chaps available back then, when the chainsaw kicked back and took a chunk about 3 inches long, 1 inch wide and 1 inch deep out of his upper leg.
Another guy I worked with, got a cut across his eyebrow and nose from a chainsaw kickback.
I bought a new Husqvarna 455 Rancher last year for using on our acreage, decent chainsaw.
