    Plastic Welding and Repair

    There are several ways to use a heat gun to run beads with plastic welding rods. I have like 5 kinds of material. The repairs always leave a nasty scar. But when it comes to fussy crack repair on harder plastics I decided to try this new electric staple type unit. I reluctantly traded some junk...

    Chainsaw Bit Me

    Cut wood in the morning with chaps on. Went to pull my last log with my tractor and it wouldn't quite make the turn around another tree. I was done cutting so I had taken my chaps off. I just needed a quick cut and i'd be on my way. When I went to make the cut I tripped and fell on my saw. The...

    Looking for Opinion.

    I'm getting closer to not burning 12-15 cord per year and wondering what the opinions would be on a smaller saw. Currently I do all my cutting with an 044, 034 Super and a 361. I limb with an 026 pro. If I sold off the 3 bigger ones is there something in the middle between the 026 and 361 that...

    Husky with outboard clutch

    What In The World !!!. My turn to be dumb. Or dumber. The guy down the road asked if I would sharpen his chain on his saw. I said sure so he stopped by with it. It's a small Husqvarna with a 14" bar and he had taken the chain cover off. He said he had to pry it off. I looked at it and noticed...

    Chain Life

    I have been digging through old posts and can't find exactly what i'm looking for. Historically I sharpened down to 1/8" from the angle mark on on the tooth. Question is, Does anyone go beyond the 1/8"? I can't imagine running it further on a 60cc saw. Or am I throwing away good chain?

    I was running some flux cored stainless 308LT1 045 today. Magical stuff even on straight CO2. The all position welds were simple, fast and nice looking. The problem was my CO2 flowmeter. I had lost the little disc that goes into the nut to seal from leaks. Question is, Who dreamt up the 320 CGA...

    Quik question. I'm getting deeper into a restoration of an 034 Super. I took out the oil pump due to the pump to bar hose being cracked and I wanted to clean the 2 gallons of oil out the frame. When I took the oil pump out, On one end there is a white plastic cap that covers the worm drive...

    044Mag Cyl. Inspection

    Greetings. I was cleaning up my 044 and replacing the exhaust gasket. I shined a light into the cylinder to check it out and could see very very fine vertical sctratches.

    Stihl Bar studs.

    Do you chainsaw repair guys use loc-tite when installing the bar studs in your saws? Recently my threads for the nuts have gotted banged up and I have ordered new studs. Or just screw them in? I have had them come loose in the past.

    Stalling TA247

    I've had this TA247 for 15 years and it has seldom missed a beat. I started it yesterday 15 degrees out there. It started and I let it run a few minutes. Then I took off on it and after 100 yards it would chug down and kill. Then after a few seconds It would start up chugging a bit like 1-2...

    I'm not sure how many people are using saw chaps but after 20 years of fairly heavy cutting I thought it may be time. Fatigue has caused a few near misses over the years and The more I think about them the more I think about getting chaps and a hard hat/face shield. Anyone have experience with...

    Funny stuff. I was checking out all of the newly imported welders at the show. I have attended Fab-Tech since 1999 and I have never ever witnessed so many different types and colors of welders. There must have been 30 new vendors selling machines. Some didn't even know what the machines were...

    Best Brand for the CC

    I cut a crap load of wood. Mainly dead Red Elm, Assorted Oaks and Cherry. I burn 6-8 cords in my outdoor boiler every year. I use Stihl only but am thinking of trying other brands. My smallest saw is a 026 Pro 20" with a muffler mod. I doubt another brand could match it so I'll ask about the...

    Alaskan Saw Mill

    Anyone ever try one of the Alaskan Sawmills? Start out with a ladder screwed to the log and after the 1st cut you just use the frame of the mill? I've never messed with Rip Chain either.. I have a chance to buy one for $40. Would my 044 have enough snort?

    Hard Starting

    Question for the masters. Why in the world would it take 20 pulls to start my 034 super AV. It has a new impulse line. Does the carb diaphragm get weak and not pump over time? Once started the saw will run perfectly all day and idle forever without a hiccup. cuts like mad after muff mod But...

    Muffler Mod Thanks

    I just wanted to comment on the input and all the other posts about muffler mods. I did some reading and u-tube vids and did a mod on my 039 and wow it cut like my 044. So I did a mod on my 044 and it turned into a screaming beast. I actually laugh sometimes while cutting up a 20" red elm or...

    Roach looking bugs?

    I cut a lot of wood and for years now I pull the bark off of dead red elms and these ugly roach looking things are crawling around in the bark. Anyone ever had to deal with them? Not real cockroaches I hope. They seem to die easily and run for cover when exposed. They give me the willies..
