Have any of you guys built a shear to cut slab ,if you have hydraulics no big deal ,no teeth to sharpen and their quiet.Frank C.
Have any of you guys noticed the shear junk dealers use to cut long pieces to #1,its just a massive cast iron shear that runs constantly you feed into it.Have a belt feeding it at the right speed and let her go you'd have some a little shorter than the outhers. Frank C.
If I had the money, I think I'd get one of those Chomper firewood processors... it's a shear-based one... if you haven't seen it, check it out... very impressive.For now, the direction I'm going with this cutoff saw is I've mounted a chain bar to an old electric chop saw head. It's a complete rough draft, just something I slapped together in a 1/2 hour... I wanted to see if the chop saw motor would be strong enough to pull the chain, and it is. I'll post some pics tomorrow...-Norm.
check out baileys they have what they call the smart holder for firewood for $100 bucks and it's the slickest tool i have. load it up with slabs, chop with chain saw. works great and it folds up for storage

Difference is mine will take 2 12 slabs at a time. If you're man enough to put it in, it'll hold it. When I saw the one in Baileys, I snickered to myself. A lot of good ideas coming in though. It might take a bit to wrangle out the best one.
