    Chainsaw Hack - Converting A Chainsaw Into A Chop Saw

    Hi everyone, I new to the forum and thought I would share my latest project. I converted my Sthil 029 chainsaw into a chop saw. I did not want to ruin the chainsaw because I also need to cut wood it. This is pretty much a bolt on attachment, however I did have to modify a spare clutch bell so that it would work with roller chain instead of chainsaw chain. If you like this sort of thing check out my YouTube channel. I'm into a bunch of different things, but I do enjoy making tools.

    Hope you like it!
