    Any one else happy that Axe men is starting a new season tonight? :) I love to watch these type of shows. Believe it or not I have learned quite abit of techniques about dropping trees, like how to face the tree and different ways of back cuts and bore cuts from shows similar to these. Just wondered if any one else watches.

    Yeah, I'm looking forward to it. There is another show similar to it on the Discovery Channel, forgot the name, but they log out of Main.

    We don't have quite the hills here like what the Axe Men work.

    I was watching another show the other week where they were pulling wood out of a Georgia swamp. Sure reminded me about my pipeline construction escapades across Ontario. We cut and laid trees across many miles of swamp.

    I really lucked out tonight. I go to a class at our highschool monday nights from 7-9 where we are building traditional flintlock rifles, then we end up going to the bar down the street from our house for some cold beverages and some chicken wings :) , which means I usually don't get home till around 11. We had 5 inches of snow this morning :cheese: and school was closed so our class was cancelled :down: . Only benefit is I won't miss the first episode for this season. :) Oh yea I figured out the smiley thing.

    Now you can work on getting the [quote] tags mastered.

    Patience is a virtue, that is seldom found in women but never in men. (That's what my mom used to say about my dad.)

    No Stump-Branch in tonight's episode. I hope they make a return because they logged all the crummy sites that nobody else wanted.

    Lord give me patience, but HURRY! -an impatient man's prayer

    I was talking about editing around the quote tags and not just clicking the button.

    After watching last season, whenever I go out to cut, I carry my 029 (with 18" bar) over my shoulder.
    My wife laughs at me.

    Surprising to me how many aren't wearing PPE while working.

    Is it Axe Men or Ax Men I know that I have seen it listed both ways? With all the termoil in todays life like job security, economic wellspan of the country, oil prices, having enough wood to last the rest of the season, etc... this is one more thing I don't need plagueing me.

    That was good! :lol: I thought "axe" is what some people say when they should say "ask," but I was wrong!

    Kenneth G. Wilson (1923–). The Columbia Guide to Standard American English. 1993.

    ax, axe (n.)


    These are variant spellings of the wood-cutting tool’s name; Americans generally use ax, the British axe, and both use a plural axes, pronounced AKS-iz. See SPELLING

    I saw the same thing. Most of the time guys had hard hats but, unless they were wearing 'em under their pants, chaps were often missing... Thankfully they did highlight the one scene where the one guy (don't know names yet) was bucking the limbs on the tree and his saw kicked back into his leg. Showed how he cut through his jeans and almost into the chaps. At least he was wearing chaps!
