To answer the most common questions: I don't have any
blueprints or plans printed up. The plans are only in my head. It was a
build-as-you-go project. I had rough sketches and some calculations but are not
anything to build on. I knew what I wanted the machine to do and what other
designs would do so I made the modifications as needed.
I purchased the (bar, sprocket, chain) from GB American as separate items. 800-765-9357. The high speed orbit motor was purchased from Surplus Center 800-488-3407. I built the bar mount and pivot from scratch. I also had to figure out a way to mount the sprocket on the orbit motor and design a bar oiler. Sounds simpler than it is, but if you are familiar with chain saws it would help. I did my own design and labor to save money. This cost me about 7-8 thousand bucks. Some processors just use a large gas powered saw to simplify things. L & M Equipment 800-228-0793 sells a hydraulic unit but the price is scary as hell. Not much help but if you want to call me, my number is below.
Here is the information I have for the hydraulics study course:
