Chain Grinding Information How to Minimize Cutting Vibration on a Pro Saw A saw that vibrates excessively causes your hands to tingle and your elbows to ache. It also adds to fatigue, reduces productivity, and increases the “work” of running a pro saw. But for a pro saw user, excess cutting vibration can be more than an irritating cutting characteristic. It can cause long term injury.
Sharpening Tips of wood. Anything that causes individual teeth to take different sized bites can cause vibration. How Sequence & Pitch Affects Cutting Vibration Most pro saw users who cut large softwood trees in the Northwestern US and Alaska, typically run long bars -- 32" and longer. These long guide bars are usually fitted with skiptooth saw chain. While this combination works well when a long bar is immersed in a big log, skip-tooth sequence is more prone to cutting vibration.

Chisel Chain Master Grinder Page Serious timber fallers have one thing in common. They use SILVEY chisel chain grinders! And the model most fallers use is SILVEY’s mid-priced grinder, the SDM-4. Over the last two decades, the SDM-4’s reputation for quality and durability has made it an industry standard. In fact, when people think of a “Silvey,” they think of the SDM-4. SDM-4 The SDM-4 is a good choice for an experienced grinder operator who wants to move up to a better machine.

Chisel Chain Master Grinder Page The SWING ARM is SILVEY’S entry level chisel chain grinder. This simple and proven design is based on an old favorite, the Silvey Razur Sharp 1. This was one of the first "economy" square chisel grinders ever produced. But this isn’t just an old grinder that came back to life, it has been improved with a modern motor and a new adjustable chain holding mechanism.

Master Tree Jacks Page The high value of timber makes broken logs and damaged trees expensive. Working on steep ground and meeting environmental requirements create additional challenges. Jacking is often the only way for today's timber fallers to get their job done. Tree Jack SILVEY developed a ram unit jack because much of today's timber is harvested before it gets to "old growth" size.
Master Tree Jacks Page SILVEY is well known for chain grinders, but they were also early to develop hydraulic jacks made for lifting trees of tree jacks. Not long after they patented their first grinder, they began work on a tree jack. Early on, timber fallers used steel bottle jacks (truck jacks) for lifting big trees, but these were heavy and hard to carry. Once again, they put machine tools to work and developed a set of jacks.

Replacement Hickory Master Handles Page Hickory Handles HIGH GRADE HICKORY is a tough and dense wood from which the finest tool handles are made. They are durable, they hold metal heads when properly installed, and they absorb some of the vibration created when a striking tool is used for chopping or pounding.

Master Tips from Page the Shop How To Troubleshoot An Air Leak On A Pro Saw Air leaks often cause problems for pro saw users, yet few understand what one is. Even experienced operators often confuse the symptoms of an air leak with those of a carburetor problem -- a misdiagnosis that causes them to loose productive work time and spend money unnecessarily on replacement parts their engine doesn't need.
Tips from Master the Shop Page is usually done in a shop and with special tools. To do a pressure test, the carburetor and muffler are first removed. Then the intake and exhaust port are blocked off with special plates. With the ports sealed, 6 - 8 lbs. of pressure is pumped into the crankcase area. If a pressure gauge drops more than one pound in a minute, the engine has an air leak that needs to be repaired.
Master Tips from Page the Shop continued from page 107 While a bench test is the best way to diagnose and repair an air leak, the following simple test may help you. While it may not tell you exactly what the problem is, you can easily learn what it is not, and this can save both money and time. The seal behind the flywheel sometimes fails and causes an air leak. If you have access to a good running spare saw of the same model as the saw giving you trouble, remove the carburetor from the good running saw.
