Not sure if this was posted before, but i don't remember seeing it...very cool.
That is WAY cool John. The sing of that buzz saw reminds me of our neighbor back in the mid fifties sawing wood with a Farmall Regular with a buzz saw mounted on the front. No other sound like it. Thanks for posting that. Dave
Thanks so much for posting that.....
That was a real treat...The engine sound on the P/UP is perfect...Just how a Model T should sound...
When I saw him get in on the left I realized it was a Canadian car. I hadn't thought of BC looking like that, but it makes sense that eastern BC would look a lot like eastern Washington and Oregon. That's a very well done video.
I got to thinking(dangerous!), I think I remember seeing a video of his Dad running that saw sometime back. Dave
What a great tribute to his Father to do a video like that. That is one of the best videos I have seen posted.
Nicely done. And a very sharp saw blade.
A really great video. Thanks for sharing. Dewey
That was fun! I wonder if he has a Model T powered log splitter too?
Too cool! I guess it's a Canadian body, since I saw him getting in the left door. Also, I think the bed is from a Model A?
I like it!! There is a good lesson for buzz saw builders here-Wood slides better on a metal table than wood!!! We stoped buzzing in 1992.Bud.
We stopped using the buzz saw around 1964. I remember for years watching my Dad feed the logs well my brother and I caught the smaller stuff coming off the saw and tossed it up on the truck. The bigger stuff would get pushed aside for splitting before it went on the load. I was always afraid for my older brother when he was standing by that big open blade. But it never seemed to bother me when I had to be there. We ran it off the PTO on a Farmall F14 tractor. Once when I was really young I went to climb up onto the seat of the tractor. My pant leg got tangled in the PTO shaft. It twisted me up and I hung on while I spun around a few laps inside the drawbar of the tractor. I was cut and scraped from my feet to my chest and at 65 years old I can still see the scars and remember vividly ho it happened. The thing I remember most was the Doctor spraying anti septic on the abrasions and how bad it stung when he sprayed it into some very private very painful places. It was a tough lesson on the farm that day.
Several things I wonder. Where? It looks a bit like the eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada maybe between Bishop and Reno?
I also wonder why he takes off the belt when he finishes running the saw, and also why he starts the engine before putting the belt back on?
Norm, The creator of the video answered some questions in the comments at Youtube - it's filmed on his property in Cherry Creek, British Columbia, Canada.
GREAT video. Thanks!!
I imagine he takes the belt off when he's finished to prevent it from stretching. It's also a guess, but I think he waits to put it on until after he's started the engine for the same reason some folks jack up one rear wheel to start their T.
I didn't know it looked like that in British Columbia! I have only been in Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
