Old Saw Rings True for Firewood Cutting

Firewood cutting still warms twice.

Right: Drag saw collector Chuck Simmons, Sioux Falls, S.D., makes short work of a cedar log with his 1920s vintage Witte saw. This Witte drag saw offers a fine example of the portable style drag saws. The wheels are currently mounted at a right angle to the saw, which facilitates its movement down the log. When in transport mode, the same wheels would be mounted on the other set of axles, and the saw could be moved wheel-barrow-like by lifting on the wooden handles visible near the tip of the saw blade.
