I'd like to make a homemade log marker for chainsawing firewood.? Answered
There are products on the market that are basically a wheel attached to a spray paint can. As you roll he wheel over a log, it marks the log every X inches. You need to buy different wheels for different marking lengths.
Basically, the plan is to have a log marked every X inches so we know where to cut it for perfect firewood length logs.
Alternate tools available are measuring sticks that attach to your saw, but they are awkward and limit your saw to only making firewood (you can't use it to cut down or limb up the trees with the attachment).
I normally use the saw length (on my 18" saw), or the body length (on my 32" saw) for a guide, but a spraypaint thingy would be much simpler.
