    saw chain

    Re: Anti-kickback [ QUOTE ] I've always used it, so don't know anything different. Is the difference huge? I'd like to cut faster and/or more efficiently; if I go to a chain without the anti-kickback stuff is it a really big deal? [/ QUOTE ] Yes it's huge. If you're familiar with the...

    Video: Rescue Kit

    Nicely done Erik, as usual. You're the professional tree guy, but as a someone who's seen his fair share of nasty injuries in my line of work, I'd recommend some burn dressings. They come in a sealed envelope and are pre-impregnated with a salve. You just open the envelope, and slap the whole...

    [ QUOTE ] Jeff, I am still kinda leary about modding the muffler just yet. I know it will give the saw more power, but I don't know if I wanna mess with it. I like the power it has and it suits my needs so far. I'll run a few more tanks of fuel through 'er and see after that. Or maybe I...

    [ QUOTE ] Jeff, Can you explain what you have going on there with the muffler mod. What is holding the screen in place? [/ QUOTE ] That's the spark arrestor from my 200T, so it just sits in there. I did peen it down a bit to make sure it stayed put, but that's it. The bracket it rivited...

    Gary, open the muffler. It's easily done, and this saw needs it....plus it sounds better! My buddy's which is not opened sounds significantly different. Mine being throatier and deeper. Runs alot cooler as well. Welcome to the Buzz Gary. Jeff

    Can we do this to a chainsaw bar?

    [ QUOTE ] Some one needs to make a bar of 100% titanium. Now, that would be a light bar! [/ QUOTE ] True, but most Ti alloys are too hard (brittle) to be conducive to be used exclusively on a saw bar. I'm tellin' ya, you've got to check out one of those Oregon light weight bars. It...

    Can we do this to a chainsaw bar?

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] No doubt putting holes in the bar is going to make it more likely to get bent in the sideways direction. Less metal has got to be weaker. [/ QUOTE ] I don't know about that. Metal trusses in buildings are all over. They are stronger and lighter. Look at a steel truss...

    Can we do this to a chainsaw bar?

    Oregon makes a light weight bar, and it's it very much noticibly lighter, especially over 28". I'd go that route before I started modifying a bar. I don't know if the holes themselves would be less safe in and of themselves, but if not done absolutely correctly, the bar would be weaker, and...

    ATTN: Roger Barnett

    I did the same search, and found that too. That's pretty weird. And as far as the Gypo pic in chaps....uhh...lemme get my tan in order first, and then we'll talk!

    ATTN: Roger Barnett

    Ya know Roger, it's a shame you can't compose a good picture. Somebody needs to show you how to work a camera. I'm getting tired of all these dramatic alpine and skiing action shots, one after the other in brilliant color and composition. Can't you just take a picture of the parking lot, or...

    Protien drinks

    [ QUOTE ] You have wheels like that Jeff? [/ QUOTE ] Nah, mine are more like Tom Platz's. HAHA! My legs are my strongest and most easily developed body part though. Of course I wish my arms and chest grew like my legs and back does. No one says, "Man, that dude has a killer outter...

    Protien drinks

    Gunter is 6'1", which to those that don't know, is huge for a body builder. Here's a pic of Lee and his face ink. I like tats, got several of my own, but none on my face. That's a bit too much for me I guess.

    How many saws do you need?

    Cutting firewood in my yard, I wear chaps. In timber I wear Labonville pads under my Filson as it won't snag on anything. I wear a climbng helmet with muff when I'm...well climbing. For firewood duties, I'll wear a Stihl helmet with the muffs and face shield. Nice in the yard, but cumbersome...
