    swing dutchman

    All the guys I have cut timber with call it a swinging Dutchman. Or a Dutchman. But never heard it called a swing Dutchman. And I agree with you Rico, it has no place in residential use. I’ve used it many hundreds of times in the woods, sometimes it works amazingly well, other times it doesn’t...

    pat lacey

    Around here we call that a swing cut. As opposed to a Dutchman where you cut a corner off. The sizwheel was the little notch under the face, which I call a draw notch.

    Is "wobbling" a tree down by cutting off short sections at a time a good plan?

    I do this often. With little trees in a thick stand, and I’m talking little, like 10”dbh or smaller. And Evo is absolutely correct, good way to smash your foot, or leg, or top of your head with a limb that’s suddenly down in your space.

    034 tank leaking through screw hole

    If you find a crack I’ve had good results using jb weld and a piece of screen to reinforce it. I’ve used old window screen, spark arrestor screen,,, rough up the plastic with sand paper, clean it and apply thin layer of jb weld, then screen, then more weld.
