Does this sound familiar? You’re headed out for a day of cordwood cutting and you pull out your chainsaw, bar oil, fuel, and tools. You get set up at your work site and begin to start your saw, and it won’t start. Or your saw starts but begins to smoke. How about your chain is slowly creeping around the bar and your hand is not even on the throttle? Or, you’re trying to cut and you are creating fine dust and not flying out wood chips.

This can all be avoided, BBG says. Come and learn 10 ways (at least) to keep your saw running efficiently with Melissa LeVangie Ingersoll and Bear LeVangie. BYOS – Bring your own saw, tools, and PPE (and things you have questions about).

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
