Report on our meeting 10-11-2022, managed by Peter Lawrence.
Our meeting on Thursday 10th November 2022 was organised and managed by Peter Lawrence, Peter had arranged for Roddy Ross a local professional chainsaw operator to give us a talk and demonstration on all aspects of chainsaw use, including the use of safety gear.
After Roddy was introduced to the club members, he gave a brief summary of his professional career using chain saws. He then went on to press home the need for everyone who uses a chain saw to get all the necessary protective gear, especially the chain saw trousers, but he also included the hard hat, face screen, ear defenders and the proper chainsaw gloves.
His talk then moved on to cover the maintenance of a chainsaw in great detail, that was followed by him talking about all the different types of chain including the sharpening of a chain, he had some of the sharpening tools with him and demonstrated their use.
His final part of the talk was done outside where he gave us some advice on how to use the chainsaw and the dangers involved if not handled properly.
Here are a few pictures of Roddy at the meeting during his presentation.
That concluded Roddy’s talk and demonstration, he was thanked for his participation and assured that a lot had been learned by our members, a show of appreciation then followed.
The turn out for this meeting was very good. Our next meeting is on the 24th November and is in tribute to our late treasurer who died recently.
