Is your cross cut saw 240 or 110v?
Mine is 110 with a transformer from 240.

How do you power your tools in your utopia?

Well....I personally lean toward manual tools for "most" applications. Obviously in the textiles we will need machines...

I personally don't see electric saws as being feasible at this point....although I like the fact that they are quiet and pollution free. I just don't like the idea of extension cords or lots of batteries.

Well you were the first to bring up talk of cross cut saws...just saying.

*edit*
How do you power your tools without cables or batteries?

Ok....I think we must be speaking of two different types of saws....it sounds as though you may be speaking of what has been referred to around me...as a sawzall or reciprocating saw. The type of cross cut saws that I was referring to... were operated by one or two men ...the two men working in unison each pulling on their end of the saw at the appropriate time. Or the one man cross cut saw that was like a hand saw on steroids. ..with deep and menacing teeth.. that like to eat wood. ....
...imo...a man must possess two qualities to operate a one man cross cut saw effectively over an extended period of time. ..one is...he must have an arm that possesses strength and stamina and the second is...he must be wise and diligent in the sharpening of his tool. So that there are two great gifts in this one activity.

I think you are bull#ting and you rarely use a saw.
...at least I'm honest and we needn't pretend to be friends.

Maybe you should quit while you're behind.

You obviously don't know what a crosscut saw is.



And why you're trying to start a fight about something so ridiculously trivial is beyond me...

Perhaps you need to take a KitKat break ?

Meh regional dialect, don't get your knickers in a twist.
No break needed either, I don't get emotional like some

I beg to differ.

You've gotten your knickers in quite the twist due to "regional dialect" resulting in you getting all emotional and tossing around the ad hominems.



... over fricken saw names, of all things.

Any time ol' chap.

Or as they say in my part of the world (regional dialect):

"Dirty deeds done dirt cheap" or free in my case.




... unless of course you're offering me a case of beer for all my hard work, I'm not afraid to accept a little token of people's' appreciation every now and then.

Well...I will give you credit where credit is due. ...I have very rarely used a cross cut saw...in fact only tried my neighbors out for a few minutes..I have used Swedish bow saws a fair amount and carpenter's handsaws....a handsaw is a handsaw. They are not a complex thing to operate.

It was kind of obvious you didn't use tools but hey, cranial whatever will still whine and entertain me

I have an old 6ft crosscut saw hanging on the wall in my garage, it was handed down to me by my grandpappy (he worked in the BC lumber camps back in the 1920's).

It's all rusted and one of the wooden handles is missing, but it makes for a great piece of artwork on the wall... don't think I'll ever have any need for it.

I'd love to restore it back to it's glory days though, all shiny and new.



Mind you, I've been saying that for 20+ years now.

Yeah different definitions of what a cross cut saw is...and funny as # the member you defended admitted he rarely uses saws.
