    Been splitting the mother lode of Black Locust I got back in May?june due to a freak tornado in my area. I found a nail buried deep in a round today while splitting. Pretty interesting although nothing out of the ordinary glad I missed it with my saw.

    Two weeks ago I found 5 nails. 4 of them in 4 cuts. Daughters boyfriend learned some new words, I used all the old ones and had to make some up on the spot.

    Nails and other junk are frequently found in homeowner trees. Hopefully not with your saw chain.
    I have even found a big screw eye, 3/8in shank, in an old Tulip Poplar tree. I keep a small collection
    of such 'souvenirs' I found, mostly nails. I should take a photo and post it here.

    Posted this photo a while back. The blue staines on the end of the round were a warning to watch for hidden metal. Figured these nails were in about 30 rings.
