Now you can enjoy the same elegant spiral style cut in tasteful oak as you enjoy in your tasty ham!

I spare no expense on ethanol-free gasoline and genuine Stihl-brand 2 cycle oil to cut each log at least twice in the same cut. Order yours today, and watch your dinner guests turn green with envy!

Seriously, I apparently have a problem following a pre-existing cut. Maybe I'll get my eyes checked!

Figured as much. When you roll the log do you go 180 degrees?
You can try not rotating as much but it’s harder than it looks the line up multiple cuts perfectly.

You lookin' to feed the termite market this Thanksgiving? Seriously, your logs look like you got a pretty good cut given the length of your bar and the tools you had available....

You could have one of three problems but the most likely is your sharpening technique. Your angle on one side is off by just a very small amount. The other things could be a bent bar or the nose has some wobble in it where the rivets are getting loose and the third thing the felling spikes or dogs could be bent or loose causing that. Also could be the way you bear down on the saw but that's the least likely of the four

Thanks... I bet if I cut stuff this big all the time, I'd get better.

Thanks, Branch. I remember that was your thought (and you were right) why my cuts were curving, so I started with a machine-sharpened chain on these. I will look into the other things you mentioned. Still the original bar, so maybe that doesn't help anything.

But it's probably the nut behind the trigger that's the problem!

You aren't opposite eye dominant are you?

I have trouble ending up where I started out when cutting round things and it is supposedly because I am left-handed but right-eye dominant. Makes me think things are straight when they are slightly whonker-jawed.
No, I don't even have that fig leaf to hide behind: Right eyed, right handed, right footed, politically right, etc.
