Com: Johndeere : Unfortunately the chain cuts in only one direction if you see closely,
and the engine was spinning it in the opposite direction.
By flipping the chain, the correct cutting direction is achieved, but in order to cut safely and avoid any kick back,
I was cutting with the upper section of the blade where the teeth of chain are faced towards me,
pulling the chainsaw in to the wood and not away.
I should have made it more clear in the video because many people are now confused.
Com: Wood working crazy : You know the single thing I like most about the finished product?
It SOUNDS like a mini-chainsaw. From the sound alone, you have a decent chance of guessing at what it is.
Even with whatever flaws it might have due to things like having to have the blade in upside down, you cannot deny what it is.
Awesome job, dude! In my opinion, the upsidedown blade just gives it more character.
(As long as it is used properly, at least. Otherwise it's dangerous as hell.)
