    Is there a defenitive description for lumber shorts?

    Are you referring to lumberhosen, the favorite party outfit for German lumberjacks?

        I'm trying to work out what this topic is about.

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          At Wall Lumber:

          "Sizes range 22" - 56" Long, 3" - 9" Wide."

          So if you are buying from them, that is the definition.

              If they are pieces of horsechestnut, are they jockey shorts?
              Short-nosed pieces of dogwood - boxer shorts?
              Ah - well...

                You folks are bad.........but funny.......

                Lonepine - I think you'll find that lumber shorts are simply pieces of wood that are shorter than industry standards for the intended uses.

                I'd hate to hear what these folks would call a short piece of cherry........

                    by Rolf
                    I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                    I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                    I used...

                    If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                    After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                    I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                    Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                    Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
