After long involved searches, and piecing together parts from almost a dozen saws, I have made the closest thing to screen-used I can. Enjoy.

Looks great . Is it functional, can ou fire it up ? [/b]
No, this particular one does not start. ...Which is fine by me, since I really didn't intend on actually using this prop as a garden tool. I do, however, have a few of the not-as-screen-accurate saws that do work, with one in particular that I use to cut things around the yard. ...and boy is that fun.. :D Exactly like the movie one - loud, smokey, and vibrates. It's awesome..

From my recolection of the movie, it wasn't used as a garden tool. More in the area of food preperation. :eek

What make and or brand is it? I work with a bunch of Amish fellows I'll have to see what I can get from them.
Yours looks great nice job.

I didn't think the Amish used such modern things as chainsaws, cars, and electricity.

those are realy hard to come by [/b]
Yes, this particular model of saw is over 35 years old, and only kept around for parts, usually. Another great prop first from me, as I have never seen anyone do this prop correctly.
