Log holder for a chain saw - DaveH - 11-10-2012

Hi,
Started this a couple of days ago.
Based on the old type 'X' wood horse, only in metal Smiley-dancenana Smiley-dancenana Smiley-dancenana

Using 50x25mm (1" x 2") rectangular steel tubing. The photo's just show the 6 legs cut, 6 holes drilled and temporary bolted together.

The wheelbarrow is just to give some idea of the size, just in case you don't know how big a brick is. And yes I did build that brick wall 14000 bricks Slaphead.

Looks good Dave, which goes first the chain or the crossbar? Are you going to put a sacrificial board along the top of the horizontal?

Geez, i thought the wheelbarrow was to catch the blocks,, save picking them up!

Are you going to cut in the two uprights or off the end?


RE: Log holder for a chain saw - DaveH - 11-10-2012

Sorry guys (Steve & Sasquatch) I didn't explain it very well. It isn't finished yet the 'G' clamps and the cross bar are there to hold it together so I could see what it looked like and to take a couple of photo's.

There will be no sacrificial board, sacrificing people is frowned upon in this country - can't think why there are a few million I'd like to sacrifice.RotflRotflRotfl
I have more or less finished it so I take some more photo's I just have to decide whether to paint it or not. Popcorn

Wheelbarrow to catch the logs - now that's a good idea Thumbsup
With a chainsaw I tend to cut off the ends - I'm always concerned cutting between supports in case it jams the bladeSlapheadSlapheadSlaphead

Of course you have to paint it!! Lol
