I used what I had lying around, you can improvise.
- Chain saw chain (old, you're going to be cutting it) sharp
- 60 ft or so of rope, I used 1/4 in nylon
- S hooks (2)
- metal coat hanger (or similar heavy wire)
- handles, 6 in, broom handle or something (2)
- electrical tape
Step 3: Grinding
I also cut down a couple drive teeth, so the chain will fold over.
Step 4: S hooks
Step 5: Secure The Ends
Step 6: Rope
Step 8: Handles
Step 9: You Are Done!
A weight on a small string, for throwing.
Also, look at which way the teeth are going, that will be the side you pull to cut. I marked the handles "cut" and "throw".
Step 10: Tip
I'll be honest, this thing worked way better than I though it would!
Step 11: Oh.. and Be Careful!!
And don't stand right under the tree.... That's why we made the ropes longer :-)
