while I am asking about saws.......
I have a compound mitre saw which is great also as a chop saw for cutting
lengths of wood down to go in the wood burning stove.
However it has a limited 'throat'.
Is there another type of (affordable) saw which can cut large bits of wood
(4" * 4" or larger) and is also suitable for cutting down small logs?
I have a small chainsaw which does O.K. for cutting large logs but it does
waste a lot of wood, and is also not suitable for trimming short lengths if
you want to shake hands with your assistant afterwards.
I have in my head a picture of a saw with a fixed vertical blade, a bit like
a huge jig saw but fixed to a bench or stand.
Is this a band saw?
If so, is is suitable for what I want and reasonably affordable?
If not, what?
