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?!?!?!?

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  Wonder how long it lasts in the package if it goes out of date.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.

I was like   [scared] Its going to fit!  As it got closer to the protool I was thing yes yes but the holes are higher up so drill two holes and it will fit!     Im sure you can get one to fit!!!!   The protool has a wider bar than my chain saw!   Oh also it is quite easy to remove to riding knife!  If you look at the pictures the metal riding knife goes under the bar so if you had a longer bar it would be in the way so you could either cut it or! Remove it or easily get one made to suite the bar.  looks like you can easily unscrew it!

I was being stupid!  I never looked at the bag! I just ripped it open and fitted the chain!   The Oregen one is the one which comes with chain saw and the Protool one is the one he gave to me for free.   Well when I was at the NEC thats the one I picked!   Making me think now!  Seems odd protool does not put a protool chain in.  Do you think he put the oregen chain isntead?! and the Protool is the one which comes with the Protool so I should of had to protool chains?!?!

hi jmb.

 you should check out protool.com.au

you will find all the accessories available for the protool sword saw.

have you used the saw much?
does it leave a splinter free cut?

i suspect it will be for rough cutting only.

i thought about buying the swordsaw for cutting and rippping coconut posts, but these are dressed all round and i reckon the protool will leave a lot of chipped edges.

Well I only got to play with it 2 day! I only done ONE cut with it so far lol and that was set at a 60 degree angle cutting softwood 4''x4''  The cut was fine!!!  As I said before it does not touch the splinter guard as its not a tool for clean cuts really but its a good thing as if it did it would ruin your splinter guard for your TS55
 
Give me a week to have more time to play and try it out on some stuff! I have some oak flooring ill rip one down see how clean it cuts.

I c where you got the info from now!  Ill most likely have a new bar monday!

You may want to hold off a bit on that one...
The Protool bar is designed to be run in reverse direction, so it´s oil holes are on the opposite side of the blade. As it seems, a standard 91 blade won´t fit, unless you want to run your chain without lubrication.
The fact that there´s an oil hole at the right side facing you means that the blade is reversible BTW, and you should definitely do that - prserves the bar AND the chain.
1,6 kW input power transforms in less then 2 Hp output, so you probably don't even want a longer blade, although 30cm might work out.
My 2Hp tophandle chainsaw swings that exact same chain around on a 30cm blade, but i sure wouldn't want to bury anything close to it's full length in wood while cutting.
As a contrast: My Stihl MS660 felling saw definitely needs its 7+ Hp to swing around a 63cm blade in denser woods... although a 75 cm blade would do in softwoods.

What I WOULD do in your case is get an extra chain for ripping cuts, the 91R type will do fine. It will save you the hassle of regrinding a standard chain to a low angle. Mind you these chains are NOT low kickback chains, at least the 91R isn't. But I suppose that won't matter to much in this application on a guide rail...

Oh I agree! And yeha I knew you could turn the bar around.   The thing is I wasnt thinking of cutting hardwood with the Sword with the longer bar only softwood and Im sure it would cope with a longer bar going through softwood as if feels it has some power when its runnin and when I cut through the 4x4 I gave it a good push to see how quick it goes through and it didn't sound like it was struggling and it was set at 60 degrees.

Thanks for tips!

Well i used jmbs sword saw today, my conclusion is that he needs to buy a cross cutting chain and the the bar imho is a little short for what we used it for but dont think the saw could handle much more. Also using it to gang cut rafters it tilts the wrong way as it sits on the offcut whcich means your cut starts to twist as you go along. Fine piece of kit but dont think i could invest that amount of money into it the way it is fordoing what i want to do with it.

I agree!!

Not worth the money if your going to use it for roofing.


The other things like I have demonstrated like cutting oak curves etc its perfect  cutting using the rail can be very handy.

Dean, couldn't you just turn the job over in your mind (or the boards if they already had some other joints cut) so that the pointy side was up? Then the guide rail could have stayed on the solid boards.

I have the 200mm sword saw.
The bar is not getting lubrication. That is despite the bar being clean and the 2 holes are not clogged. The oil pump is working as oil flows out.
The oil flows around the bar face and inside and around the plastic support surface, but wont go into the bar holes as the chain is always dry.
Yes I tested the red knob that selects oil 1,2 and full position.
Im using standard bar oil, even tried thinning it with kero.
NOTHING WORKS!!!
What is there left to consider anyone???
