Default Cutting wood with a chain saw

I want to cut the logs into 7 inch pieces using my chainsaw.
Does anyone worry about the bar oil getting on the wood?

I've been using a chainsaw for years on wood, and have never noticed any oil on the the cut ends. Like Phil said, I worry more about blood since my foot is about 1 inch from the saw blade when I am cutting them. Sure does make the wifey nervous.

Nope. I agree that it doesn't make any difference at all. I have been cutting with the chainsaw for years at it hasn't bothered me.
Take a look at me and you decide.

Shiite! I cut meat with a chainsaw. Just don't substitute used crankcase oil for bar oil.

Steel toe boots and a pair of chainsaw chaps may not be a bad idea.

You may want to reconsider what ever it is that you are using. Something doesn't seem to be working. Mabye it's your hair spray and less lipstick.

Bar oil has never bothered me at all. However, I have OD'd on Bar Spirits before.

You could always use veggie oil instead of regular bar/chain oil...

All the wood I smoke with I cut using a chain saw and never have noticed any oil on the logs. However, I wouldn't use the woodchips because they do contain a lot of bar oil.

I use the several chain saws they all use vegetable oil based bar oil. Here in VA it costs about $.50 more per gallon but never a problem with the bar, the chain, the oiler or the chain driver. In fact Husvarna only recommends vegetable based bar oil.
