Abstract

Would like an electrical device to cut down Janab timber trees in Australia w/o splitting and destroying the logs [TAE replies: The method you suggest is too expensive There are so many cheap steam & other saws now in use in this country that I do not think there would be any money in a devise got up to do the work electrically"]
