Wood supply

Chainsaw, stops immediately I let off the gas, so no idle.
Air leak between carburettor and cylinder or diaphragm?

Isn’t it supposed to work like that? My electric does that. :rofl:

I would guess an air leak. I wouldn’t rule out the fuel line or a plugged idle jet.

I found the fault, air leak, there’s so much plastic in the way on new saws, I’m not used to it.

He was out of wood.

So we got him a quick load of slabs, to tide him over until I can bring logs up from the back.

Have been chunk’in some between the rain showers.




Sometimes i have to put the bags under roof fast when it starts raining :smiley:

Chunked some today.

Then the belt broke, a good flat belt splice will only withstand about 30% of total belt load.

To cut belts straight it’s best to put it on hard wood, and hold a knife in 90° then hit the knife with a hammer.

These joints are pretty easy to install, and gives a splice that is possibly to open.

They are sold in 12" strips.

This will do.

The “hinge” should be made with a piece of ox tendon, but i use stainless tig welding rod, because it can be re-used if i need to open the belt.
