    Hey la --- I was trying to defend you , I was trying to point out what a stretch it was trying to dis-credit you by saying if you dont vert vent you dont need a saw. So to add to your post --- dont forget --K saws - forcible entry, collaspe rescue , lots of times we use our chain saws to access mvcs, we have even used it to cutting cribbing , on salvage and overhaul have sawed drains in a floor , even sawed out a stubborn section of top plate that wouldnt give up. If mr barns thinks a saw is just limited to vert venting , he needs some time on the job.

    That's what I figured you were doing.

    I was trying to explain to him that for us our saws are primarily used for purposes other than ventilation.

    The legendary Hux bar is the ultimate universal tool for confusing a probie.... Hand it to him and watch him scratch his head....

    It does make a nice hook for whale fishing.....

    Believe it or not I actually use the hux bar for certain task.

    A hard to open hydrant the hux bar gives you more leverage.

    Lifting a man hole cover that point on the end is perfect to pry it up with.

    Not a go to tool for everyday task. But i have found it has a few useful purposes.
