You can see the Chain is no where near the splinter guard and I havent even cut the splinter guard with the TS55 YET so it going to be even further away.

This is a good thing as its a tool which isnt designed to cut worktops! So you dont have to worry using this Sword on your TS55 rails as your splinter guards wont be affect at all. No worries there then!!!

OH also when angled at 60 degrees it still misses the splinter guard

Umm dont know what to say they might bring out a 110 version?!?!?!  


Well here are the sizes give or take 1 mm the Sword cutting depth is at certain angles.

0      = 205mm

17.5 = 195mm

22.5 = 190mm

35    = 170mm

45    = 150mm

60    = 110mm


think thats right!     Has that helped?!?!?!?

yes it has helped as i know a 7" rafter can be cut at 35 trouble is might be no good for smaller extention roofs with larger rafters

Just a Video  really nothing special!

you can see where to oil goes and how you can adjust the oil flow!   IF your cutting Kingspan you turn the oil down. They sell a special chain for cutting kingspan but I dont see why a universal chain wouldn't do it just as well. I had a look at the other special chain and it looks just the same as the universal chain just cost twice as much! I was going to go for it as I was aloud to get any chain for free so ofcorse you go for the most expensive but I dont think ill be cutting much insulation with it so I went for the universal one as a spare chain.   You see how you can easily adjust the chain tension! Also their is a 0 45 and 60 mark on the saw so you know where it cuts.   Also you dont see it on the video on the other side their is a mark so you know where the chain is cutting from the other side.

Yeah seen them! Some look well dodgy though.  Thats why I liked this one as its actually a chain saw made for this.  But I see why you would want a chain saw and the plate adapter. As you might want to do large cuts and the fact its 240V doesnt appeal to you.

its not that the 240 does not appeal to me, its just i dont want to spend that amount of money to be told i cant use it. also the cut depth concerns me a little as i use alot of 175 and 225 hence why im swinging towards the head cutter. Hmmm i wonder if the bar can be changed for a 250mm bar

Yeah I cant see any reason why the bar can not be altered to a longer bar. I just went out side to try it out in wood!  It flys through to wood! I cut it at 60 degrees!  cutting 4x4 I just placed the rail onto the timber with no clamps and just cut it!

Ummm!  Not seen that before! Interesting!  Wonder how long it lasts in the package if it goes out of date.  If not might buy some just to keep in the van. Ill research it a bit more though before I do buy.   The web site kinda repeats its self about 4 times so feels kinda unprofessional plus if it was SOOOOOOO good and easy to use any one can use it why is it not that popular. Or should I say why have I not hurd of it lol

I got a Dremel and I bought the Dremel chain saw sharping kit for it!   I have got a manual sharpening kit because I already own a Chain saw Husqvarna. But the Dremel Is soooooooo much quicker!

UMMM   Well I had not used sthil chain saw before but I had used husqvarna  so thats why I bought husqvarna but not long after I was working for this company who had two husqvarnas and just bought a brand new sthil.  Well I preferred the feel of the sthil and how easy it started started easier than mine but mine start easy.  I was told to look after the new sthil for a while and used it a bit more at home testing it  [tongue].  I think husqvarna is better! but sthil looks better in appearance but that dont mater really.  Oh the company had a larger husqarvna which had quick change!  Its rubbish! Dont bother with it your better off with nuts.  The quick change and quick tighten kept on coming loose! I also hit a small thin cable when cutting this roof I didnt see it and it got stuck in the quick mechanism was a night mare to remove!  I have hit a cable with mine before and its easy just to turn the nuts and remove it.
