    Some time ago and probably still these off shore shysters were spamming Epay with bogus tractor adds offering to sell really nice new obviously expensive tractors for pennies on the dollar. Even if you really thought it could be legit the shipping price gave it away. I responded to one such add offering to buy the tractor. They promptly responded with how to pay. I responded with I would like the address to come put it up personally where I would then pay cash. I never heard from them again. Gofigure!! Seems like someone in the states would take on these people somehow. Plenty of fish in the sea!

    I was just wondering today about when some enterprising young fellow on the other side would either pick up the entire line or simply start making New parts.


    Bill, send me the info you have and Ill investigate this a lil further.

    Yes!



    All I need is for 29 of yous to send me your money and get 29 others to give you their money and so on, untill Im out of the country and everyone else is in jail.:yoyo:


    No, Im thinking if their cerial and have the parts they wouldnt mind giving some sort of proof and then we could take it from there.


    Lots of Golf and "New" Homelite pistons showing up on Ebay, got a SXL piston sitting right here and the quality is very good.


    What the alloy is would be my biggest concern, especially in the High strung Piston port X50 series saws.....

    If the pistons are anything like their food and painted toys them pistons might be made of depleted urainum.

    So, if ya did too much sawing, it wouldn't be a manly thing for very long. I think I'd have to pass on one of these hot pistons..... but I do love playing with my saws :cry: decisions, decisions...
