chainsaw table mount

I tested a new table mount for my little, electric chainsaw tonight. It is made of steel flats and some nuts and bolts, and it allows the chainsaw to be used like a table saw but with more cutting depth.

My first use for it will be to precisely cut experimental ice chimes, but it may be handy during the competition as well. I also hope to use it to mill some boards from any trees I have to cut down this summer due to beetle kill.

The initial tests went very well. If Lars's 10", stationary, ice cutting, rotary bit doesn't make it redundant, I think we will find it quite useful.

It worked very well for cutting arcs and discs by inserting an axle perpendicular to the table-top and rotating the ice around the axle.

I jus bought a new saw. I think this be useful for you too
Before each use, run a quick safety check on the saw. Be sure the lower blade guard retracts smoothly and snaps back when released. Check the blade for chipped or broken teeth; replace the blade if you find any damage. On corded saws, inspect the power cord for cracks. If using a cordless saw, make sure the battery is fully charged. Remember to unplug the cord or remove the battery before loosening, tightening, or changing the blade.
