    Chainsaw carving

    The fast-growing art of chainsaw carving is derived from the ancient art of wood carving. Modernized during the 1950s by the first chainsaw artists, the art form got its first big breakthrough during the Lumberjack World Championships in Hayward, Wisconsin in the 1980s. In 1987, the first Chainsaw Carving World Championships took place. Today, there are numerous chainsaw carvers around the world who produce wood sculptures of bears, eagles, hawks, horses, tables and benches.

    Basics

    What is ethanol fuel and why is it bad for your small engine outdoor power equipment?

    Ethanol fuel, a gas additive, is everywhere! Nowadays, the gas you pump from almost every gas station contains a blend of gasoline and ethanol. The percentage of ethanol blend is indicated by the E number. For example E10 means the gas mixture contains 90% gas and 10% ethanol. In automobiles, ethanol fuel won’t do much harm to your car's engine.
