Cutting up firewood is a lot easier since I mounted a buzz saw on the back wall of my wood shed. I've been thinning out a stand of trees on my farm. After the logs are sold, I cut up the tops and branches for firewood. I got tired of using a chainsaw so I decided to find a better way. !bought a tractor-powered 28-in. dia. buzz saw for $30 at an auction yard. It's designed to be powered by a 4 to 6-in. flat belt. I mounted the saw on the wall of the shed with two bolts and it stands on two support legs. A 2-hp., 3,450 rpm 220-volt motor on a moveable base fastens to the saw frame. The motor has a 2-in. pulley which makes the speed about right. I move the motor back and forth to "dutch" it using a turnbuckle. (Roy Aebl, 8845 S.E.
