Axe Women are here
« on: October 31, 2014, 04:24:54 pm »
We had such a great time at this year's pig roast.  And the forum just feels like home.  I have added the Forestry Forum logo to my show trailer so everyone will know I am a member. 


 

I hope to get the word out about the Forestry Forum as I travel around the country.  I hope FF members will come out and meet us.  I will post my show schedules in this section.

If you have questions or want to share pictures with us this will be a great place to do that.

Hi Alissa and welcome from across the Bay of Fundy, I have yet to make my way to the Pig Roast but by all accounts the Axe Women were a huge success.

Welcome Alissa!  While checking out the website, I see you had a place to order a calendar up, so I got myself one. :)

I recognize Laurette who was here for the pigroast and Michelle who I got to meet at Boonville :)

So there will be no more marriage proposals.  :) Alissa is happily married to a wood worker extraordinaire. The gals are here to share their adventures and skills with the membership and to help get the word out to those that may need it about the Forestry Forum. They are truly professionals at their timber sports and some of the best in the entire world.

Mad Murdock asked about our favorite tools.
The chopping axes we use come from New Zealand and Australia, their brands are usually Tuatahi or Keech. There's a new company making them called Brute Force now also. Our throwing axes have always been Tuatahi, but there's a new company in California called Precision Axes that several of our ladies are switching to. Our crosscut saws are mostly Tuatahi. And our chainsaws are of course Stihl!!

Welcome to all you Axe Women Loggers of Maine!!   The first time I heard of you was the Pig Roast threads.  Never have seen your competitions or demonstrations.
First time to see you is on this youtube..



WOW, WOW!  I would surely lose in a competition against any of you.

If your ever near Mississippi my daughter and I will be there to meet you.  Same goes for needing help.

Welcome to the forum, my wife and myself use to chop and cross cut saw, we had a lot of fun but got to old to be competive  :D I use my chopping axe to drive wedges to throw trees and our cross cuts were made in New Zealand I would have to look at the engraving on the saw to remember his name. There stored in one of the out buildings. Welcome again and look forward to seeing your show some day good luck.

Alissa...welcome. I recall seeing a few videos of you guys in action. Way, way cool. Which reminds me, during one of the demonstrations, you guys were using modified Peaveys with what looked like a turning claw on the backside. Is that to assist in controlling the log? I'm thinking that when you flip the peavey to use the claw, the hook would tend to get in the way. But then again, I'm not using one 10hrs a day 6 days a week either.  ;) :D
Again, glad to have you aboard!

here is a video of Alissa log rolling with the racing peavey.  Looks like she uses the hook as a handle.

5quarter asked about our racing peaveys. These are special peaveys that Kevin and Tammy from LogRite made for us. We use them in competition for racing. Once we get the log rolling, we roll the peavey over, use the hook as a handle, and use the teeth to keep the log rolling.

The ladies put on a nice demonstration at the pig roast .

I was rather curious about the piped Stihl 441 because I had never seen this model with a tuned pipe .The pipe itself I know how to build but how to modify this praticular design of engine to run on same I do not .

AT Sawyer asked who files our crosscut saws....
There are 2 men that my girls usually use. One is JP Mercier who lives in Quebec. And the other is Jim Taylor in California.
I, personally, have not had my saws worked on by either of them yet. But I know JP, he's a great guy. And several of my west coast girls really like Jim.

Al_Smith asked about our modified chainsaws.
We are using Stihl 441 saws. The tune pipe on them was made by Bertrand's Hotsaws in British Columbia.
Since my saws are only used in the shows, and they need to be reliable every day, he suggested only installing the pipe and not doing any further modifications. I had an amazing Stihl guy in CT tune up the saws and put a different sprocket on them and a more aggressive chain to throw chips.
I would not use my saws to compete with because they are no where near as powerful as the hot saws you would see in The Stihl Series or in a big competition. But they are super fun, and they sound great!!!

Yes, I agree, it would be a perfect world if we could all sharpen our equipment and tune up engines as well as the professionals in those fields. But as competitors we spend our time training on how to best use the equipment, and leave the technical stuff to those professionals. If my axe suffers a chip or a rolled edge, or my chain hits a rock, I can stone and file them back to usable quality. But when I am competing in a competition I will gladly ask a professional to take my equipment to a better level. Much like how a race car driver is usually not his teams head mechanic. :)

What struck me funny about  that axe thing is Ms Alissa doesn't miss many times flinging that axe .

Had she been born 1200 years ago she could have been a Viking warrior princess .I mean I'm as tough as a nail but I'll be darned if I'd stand within 50 feet of her with her angry with axe at the ready .  8)

My dad make me a jig that clamped on my cross cut saw's to file them it was made to change different degrees and angles. Before I had it I use to take them to Jack Cougar [ not the right spelling of the last name ] he lived back in the hills of Webster Spring West Virgina but has pasted away now, but I think his family still fallows the circuit.

I remember Arden Cogar from Webster Springs, West Virginia when he was a National Champion with the chain saw during the 1970's.

Couple years ago Arden Sr still competed .As far as I know Arden JR (Jamie ) still does .The last I saw any of them was at the Paul Bunyan show in southern Ohio show several years ago .

Jamie was with his girl friend at the time ,later his wife who herself was quite an axe wielder .

Fact I've got some wonderfull pictures of that day I once posted on another web forum of which I no longer belong to or even make mention of for that matter .

Hi, everyone! So happy to be here. ..I had a great time with alissa at the pig roast!!!

Hi, Laurette. Welcome to the Forestry Forum. We really enjoyed you gals at the PigRoast last summer. You drew my wife's number from the log rolling tank for the chainsaw.

I have to say, I had a gaggle of grandkids camping with us in Harrison that weekend. I had no plans to take them to Jeff and Tammy's, but they bugged me to come and I relented. They had a blast! They got such a kick from getting a chance to log roll with you guys that all they talked about is going again next year.

Thank You Alissa and Laurette for the great show of your skills.

National Champion Arden Cogar senior cut the Nation's Bi-Centennial Christmas tree down for me in 1976 on the top of Kennison Mountain when the USFS provided the tree from the Gauley Ranger District of the Monongahela National Forest. I was the Gauley District Ranger at Richwood, West Virginia and Arden Cogar was well known for his chainsaw skills at the time.

Saw the "Iron Jack and Jill" competition.  Definitely impressive at every level.  I have to Axe though...can you teach folks how to throw an Axe like that?...Just Axing....(can I get a cymbal crash please)

But seriously...what kind of training do you do? beyond practice do you have a regular work out routine or some kind of particular exercise you incorporate in fine tuning your techniques?
