Among the most labor-intensive work in your own home with stove heating is the preparation of firewood for the winter. To saw manually ten or twenty cubic meters of wood-you need to try very hard… especially if you are already a man in years and the former “labor feats” of youth you can no longer do. To simplify the task of harvesting firewood you can use a special device for sawing logs that is hung on a multi-purpose cart (see how to make a multi-purpose cart).
We make a device for sawing logs and boards
To make such a device, you need to have some skills as a welder and have a suitable material at hand: pipes, corners, rod, etc.
The basis of the fixture for sawing logs is the two pipes (1) which ends with one side welded to the pipe (2). At a short distance from the first pipe is equal to the distance between the cross pipe of the truck on top of them is welded another tube (3). To set the device for sawing logs on the truck must pipe (2) and (3) to put the cross pipe truck (4). This creates a rigid structure that can withstand vibration well.
Two special clips (5) are welded to the free ends of the load-bearing pipes (1), in which the shaft (6) is placed on two bearings. The disc saw (7) and the pulley (8) are put on this shaft. the Disc saw must be covered from above with a cover (9). the Shaft is connected to the electric motor (11) via a V-belt transmission.
This combination of a cart and a log sawing device forms a mobile high-performance pendulum electric saw, which can be used to easily cut long-length wood material.
This homemade electric saw is not only easy to maintain, but also quite convenient to work with. The principle of operation is as follows: the log is placed on the “trestles”, then a cart with a device for sawing is rolled up to them. Now you need to turn on the electric motor and lower the handle of the cart sawing the log into parts.
It is much more convenient to work with a partner who gradually moves the log forward, and the Sawman only raises and lowers the handle of the cart, but you can handle it alone if you want.
After sawing operations, the device is easily removed from the cart, which can be further used for other work purposes on the plot.
