        Here's a link to the program; you might find something there.

        On that site, there's also a link to Top Tool Picks

        and then links to outdoor tools, but I found that to be a worthless link with just a lot of advertising and nothing on outdoor tools.

        On the right hand side there's a link to watching full episodes. You might be able to rewatch the episode with the chain saw, and pay special attention at the end when the credits for products scroll by quickly (very quickly).

        Another alternative is to try this hit on Cool Tools, chain saw mill.

        Lastly, there's a Contact Us link here at which you can submit questions.

        I most heartily suggest that is the wrong tool to use here. I suspect the holders, I suspect the ability of the chain and bar to hold up, and I suspect the accuracy of the cut. many safety issues here.

        start calling tree services and see who they know who has a portable mill, a real tool for maiking x/4 rough lumber from trees. certainly the rural guys know somebody or do it themselves.

        down in SW minnesota, the guy the father in law has used when he's thinning out the old groves has a flat $400 daily fee within his driving radius, and you can run a lot of tree in a day.

        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
