Crosscut Saw Data Base Information

  1. This is my first effort at building a web site. Since I am learning constantly I decided that I needed some "test data". When I was working as a trail maintenance volunteer, I took a bunch of pictures and put them in HTML format on CDs for others. For those that asked I sent a free copy of each CD. I attempted to collect all pictures from the volunteers. I am using some of the CDs that I made of my first few trail crew trips as test data here.

  2. Almost everything on this web site is "local" i.e. there are few links to other's web sites. In the places where I have links to off-site pages, I have, at least once, verified that the off-site links work. However the internet is a dynamic system and sometimes the links "break". When a link breaks there is nothing I can to until I get some indication that it is broken and if I can, I'll try and discover what the new link is, get a replacement link or delete the link.

  3. I have made an effort to make this data accessible with any device that can access a web site by using very basic HTML code. I have tested the site with old and new Android cell phones, old and new Android tablets and older Apple equipment. (Yes I am Android user, my children and wife are Apple type users. We still get along great.)

  4. Most of this data is in PDF or JPG format. The JPG data is handy as it is easily navigated with using the browser that I usually use on my tablet. The PDF data usually has to be downloaded onto my tablet before I can navigate with it and the default tools that I use do not easily navigate in the downloaded data. I have made an attempt to indicate the size of many files. This is so that if you are downloading it you have some indication of how long it may take to obtain the file.

  5. When I found what seem to be identical copies of a manual, or catalog, and when the sizes are different, I have kept copies of all the different copies here. As different people scan in these older documents there are many differences in the success of scanning in old documents that may be found today. In some cases some pages may not be readable in one scan but are readable on a different scan, etc. Since I am trying to get the most usable information available, I just included the various copies that I was able to find

  6. All of the videos are off-site and the links may get broken. I would like to make a local copy, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet.

The files

  1. Saw data This is data about each individual saw that I have at home.

  2. Saw tools This is data about various tools used in maintaining saws and saw handles.

  3. Detailed information on saw tools Using saw tools.

  4. Detailed saw data This is data about various Cross Cut saws from their manufacturer's catalogs.

  5. Saw Manufacturer's Catalog Extracts All of these are hosted on this site.

  6. Older documentation and data files Most of these are hosted on this site.

  7. A collection of patents related to saws.

  8. Volunteer Trail Crew work in the Sierras. I have been using this older trip information to try and get this web site working. It also shows how much fun we had working as a group on maintaining trails in the Sierras.

  9. Various production notes about how I put this together., 1865 Herndon Avenue, PO Box 82, Clovis, California, 93611
