When to use a Ripping Chain
Last question of the day. I've got to get off my rump and do something today. I've got firewood sections that I need to saw up into turning blanks. I understand it's advised one use a ripping chain when cutting perpendicular to the log, directly into end grain, as with a CSM. But what if your cutting parallel to the trunk? "They" say this is the easiest way to saw blanks off a short section of a log. I would be saving my ripping chain for the occasional times I need to slab a small log.
