What is a sawpit? Since your wife's father used to have one I suspect you know the answer to my question!
Before the days of the saw mills as we know them - the log/tree trunk was placed over a pit and one bloke had to get in the pit and the other on top, and with a long, double handled saw they would saw the trunk into planks. Incidentally, father-in-law even had the saws hanging up. The pit had been unused long before I came on the scene but they never filled it in.
I like your thoughts about the contraption on the ground! LOL Don't let the CIA know your thoughts, they may have to arrest you!! <grin>
Ah Yes, Charles - Boris might transport me to the colonies, or the dreaded Gestapo or KGB might get me - but even I don't know the secret location.
