does any one have an old picture of a model t cutting wood?
I am looking particular for the picture of the T that has been on the forum in the past. It has a wide belt seen attached to the axle on one end and the saw at the other end.
It is a joke for a friend. I told him when all else fails on the farm, call me, he might need a model t to bail him out this winter!
There is a picture in this thread, but maybe not the one you had in mind:
This one of Billy Key I posted on the other thread:
Billy owns a 50sq. mile ranch some 60 miles north of Roswell. He stopped answering my emails some months ago, his celfone is disconnected, and his home phone just rings. I fear the worst.
He sure didn't have any extra weight for cushion.
Man I don't care what any body says those saws are scarey enough just standing still! Just not used to seeing something without all the safety add-ons I guess.
Both of those look small as normal was a 30" saw! If you were raised in town it might be scarey but if you were farm raised it was your job from about 13-14 and almost every Sat except Deer Season when cold! Spending money at 2 or 3 bucks a day when our's was done and you worked for other's.When i was a kid i always [threw away] until [MY famley] Buzzed then i ran the [Table]!! Bud.
Here are some videos, but not necessarily all good ones.
The second video show's a good buzz rig but what it does not show is the carying gange or anyone throwing away! There was allways someone throwing away as wood falling back into the saw is not good and who stoped the crew to pick it up and move it??? Another thing not shown is the fact lumber or slab was seldom used but poles/logs and anything cut was sawed even if it had to be rolled every cut!!!!!!!!!!! A 30" blade was normal but a 36" cut much nicer and saved a lot of rolling!!! With the off shore bunch sending us the Emardl Ash Bore we have all the dead Ash anyone could ever burn but i'm old and lazy so i burn CORN!! With as much heat in a bushel of Corn as in almost 4 gal of fuel oil the math is simple, $3.34 or approx $16.00 plus 4% sales tax!!!!!!!!!!! Not to mention we can grow our's and has there ever been a War for corn??????????? Bud.PS,A model T is a little short on hp for a buzz crew but Model T axels are good for steaking down the buzz rig!! Bud.
You guys missed the boat. He wanted a picture of a Model T cutting wood, not a bunch of people cutting wood.
Here is another pic ..
Billy is fine but busy as always. We e-mailed a few times in the last week and his ranch operations are scattered around and the cattle business is busy. I had not talked to him for about 6 months myself but he did respond in the last week. His e-mails were not as long as in the past but his days don't seem like they ever end...he does way more in a day than most do in a month and runs most operations with little or no help. One tough guy.
Thanks, Tim! What a relief.
Perfect! Thanks! Bob
