A Glossary Of Chainsaw Terminology

Published Categorized as Lumber Journal

I’ve defined and described a range of chainsaw terms across the entire of the Cross Saw Mill website, so I thought it would be useful to start a glossary of chainsaw terminology to help you navigate easily.

Click on the links to the questions below to be taken directly to the definition or answer to your question.

To quickly navigate this page as it grows, you may find it useful to tap ‘Ctrl+F’ on your keyboard if using a desktop computer – type words from your question and you’ll find questions containing your words highlighted.

In future I will implement a more technical search onto the website – but for now, this should help!

Hi, I'm Dave. I’ve been sawing for more than 40 years. I feel most at home when I’m surrounded by nature and my saws, but occasionally, I’ll share some of my know-how and experience on Cross Saw Mill.
