clutch slip

Turns out the chainsaw clutch wasn’t damaged at all.  The chain brake (strap) had been set and I couldn’t see how it worked for a little bit.  The strap was very thin and seated against the drum.

The brake bail apparently moves more than I thought it did;   I wasn’t moving it far enough to disengage the brake.    Pushed it back into position and all is well.

Cut two truckloads of limbs off the fenceline today.  Little by little.
