Chainsaw Milling Attachment
Attachments saws for longitudinal sawing logs in a horizontal plane. It consists of a timber fixing mechanism, attachment for saw and guide. Attachments for chain saws can have a frame (for hardness) and attached to the bus at both ends — at the beginning and at the end. The device on the chainsaw should be secured so as to be able to adjust the distance between the frame and the chain. This allows planks to be cut with varying thickness. It is better to choose a special chain for a longitudinal cut (they have a different angle of sharpening the teeth). Chainsaw attachments. The guide may be made of metal or hard flat board. This allows you to cut the board with consistent thickness. When sawing logs longitudinally you need to make sure that the boards have the same thickness over the entire width. Since the density of the wood on the north side is greater than on the south, it is necessary to cut in a plane from east to west (or vice versa). To protect the chainsaw from becoming clamped in the gap it is necessary lodge wedges into the gap.
Chainsaws vertical milling attachment
Attachments saws for longitudinal cutting of logs in a vertical plane. This is a fairly simple device, as the adapter is attached to the bus only at the beginning, and the guide bar provides a rectilinear movement along the rail adapter board. This simplified design leads to loose ends of the bus when sawing thick logs attached equipment does not provide the desired accuracy of cut (rough planks can be obtained, especially when sawing thick logs chainsaw improperly sharpened chain). It should also be noted that the chainsaw attachment for sawing logs in the horizontal plane provides more convenience in use than devices for a chainsaw cutting in a vertical plane (without bending).
Chainsaw attachments – lawn Aerator
Attachments «lawn aerator» is designed to break the soil crust lawn, which can be formed after a heavy watering or rain (or trampling) and prevent the exchange of air in the soil of the lawn.
