I've been rebuilding  the cordwood saw , weed cutter & brush cutter attachments that I picked up last month . The saw is the first one attached to the tractor The final piece was the clutch rod ,made one that's 1/2" stock instead of the correct 9/16" but it seems to work .  I tried it out last night and works well ,Did notice some of the set-screws for the pulleys loosened up . I'll go around the whole saw Here's the rebuild thread

Wow, Al. That's really nice.
The rod should hold for all the more you're going to use it, maybe some lock tight on any bolts that might work loose?
Cutting brush with the chainsaw is a scary proposition, I'm glad you find this safer.

Nice job on a vary wicked looking machine.  Glad to see the massive OSHA approved guard on it anyway.

Looks great. Are any of the set screws in far enough to put another on top of?

Sorry I should have said " square head screws "   they used them instead of allen head set screws . Come to think of it some where a little longer and had jam nuts so maybe that was a " fix " at some point .

I have seen those before and yes the jamb nut would help.

Oh boy have I been there and done that!! Those saws really work and work you.
Back in the 60s my dad used to haul off all the 4X4 and 2X4 blocking that was in railroad cars that were used in steel shipments to Maytag. We used a stationary belt driven saw powered by a B F Avery model A. What we did not burn was sold as firewood.
I never considered the saw to be as dangerous as the drive belt,far too many have died by getting tangled up in the belt.
Nice job Alc

Used to have a saw like that mounted on one of our WD45's. What a work-out!
