A 1946 Canadian-Made Awesome Precision Bow Chainsaw.
This is an awesome Canadian-made precision bow chainsaw produced in 1946-48. This Montreal-made precision bow chainsaw of high quality is greatly different from the current bow chainsaw models used in today’s works.
This ancient beast is equipped with a scratcher chain, a kind of design that involves a series of teeth that in principle scratch the surface of a wood. Unlike the old chainsaws, the currently used ones are designed with chipper chains which are produced with several features to adjust the depth of the cut.
These kinds of things should be saved from the waster yards and should be restored.
An Ontario man is facing charges after he and his buddies constructed a motorized picnic table and drove it around town.
Police said they attached a lawnmower motor and four customized wheels to the picnic table and took it for a spin on Sunday evening.
But the joy ride came to a sudden end when residents called police to complain about the group scooting around London’s streets, allegedly with open booze.
When officers found the table parked on a sidewalk, they charged a 46-year-old South Huron, Ont., man with having an open container of liquor in a public place.
SOME people pore over 30,000 piece jigsaw puzzles.
Others build Spanish galleons out of toothpicks or play Minecraft.
But next time someone tells you to do something constructive with your spare time, you might like to take a leaf from Joe Murray’s book – and, er, do something constructive.
For the past nine years, Joe’s supervised a team of excavators, bulldozers and dump trucks as they tackled a giant project … to excavate his basement.
Okay, so at first glance, it doesn’t seem like such a big job. If you know which end of a shovel goes into the ground, you could excavate a room-sized cavern under your house in a couple of weeks.
But if you live in Saskatchewan, Canada, where in winter the mercury has been known to hover somewhere below -15C for several weeks on end, it’s good to have a hobby.
They get captured by a fierce tribe of Amazons.
The tribe leader tells them they will be whipped for entering their territory.
The tribal chief says to the Canadian, “What do you want on your back for your whipping?”
The Canadian responds, “I will take oil!”
So they put oil on his back, and a large Amazon whips him 10 times.
When he is finished the Canadian has these huge welts on his back, and he can hardly move.
The Amazons haul the Canadian away, and say to the American, “What do you want on your back?”
“I will take nothing! I will take my punishment like a real man!” says the American, and he boldly stands there and takes his 10 lashings without a single flinch.
Finally, it’s the Frenchman’s turn and the tribal chief asks:
“What will you take on your back?”
And he responds – “I’ll take the American!”

On the way they were stopped by a game warden. “Let me see your hunting licenses boys,” he said. When he saw that everything was in order he asked if he could give them some advice.
“Sure!” the hunters agreed.
“Well boys, I think that you would find it a lot easier to drag that moose by the horns and not the tail.”
“Aye, O.K. and thanks,” said the lads.
After about five minutes one said to the other, “Boy, dragging by the horns is sure a lot easier, eh?”
“Aye, you’re right,” said his friend, “but have you noticed that we are getting further away from the truck?”
