I need to crosscut a few railroad ties for landscaping, and maybe make
a couple crude half-lap joints. *I've got a light-duty chain saw, *an
old circular saw, and some hand saws.

Any advice? *Better ways?

Thanks a heap,

Thanks to all, much appreciated.


I have done that work several times. Used both chainsaw and circular
saw. Go with the circular saw. Much easier and just toss the blade
away when done.

You will ruin whatever chain you use plus put real hurts on the bar
using a chainsaw.
