    Scrounging firewood

    My sheds full of equipment, my wood stays outside where it can dry out over summer, I've never stored wood under shelter. We clearly have different environments to deal with, we get snow in winter probably 3 or 4 times a season and most of the time it's gone within a day or 2 or maybe a week at...

    Scrounging firewood

    Yeah mate directly on the floor, mine are mostly plastic and the only magnesium cased saw I have is on a shelf.

    Scrounging firewood

    I don't have chainsaw cases for any of my saws, they just sit on my shelf or on the garage floor, there is a slight amount of oil that comes off some of them but nothing too serious (not for me anyway) most of time I carry my chainsaws on the back seat when heading out in my ute (sometimes I...

    Scrounging firewood

    I'm lucky as I usually pretty much empty the fuel and oil tanks at the same time on my saws so I generally don't fill them back up until I go to use them again, there's probably only 2-3mths of the year where they aren't being used on a regular almost daily basis in the busy times.

    Scrounging firewood

    Yeah mate I know we don't refine anymore and that's where the problem comes from, it's definitely crap fuel alright, maybe some of that fuel stabliser might be worth a try? (don't really know much about it TBH I do remember the 2 stroke oil I was using had it in it apparently. I think the best...

    LOL that's a crack up, I love prawns, bugs and crabs, nothing better to eat for me in the way of cold seafood YUM! We had some yummy Tiger Prawns, ham and a variety of diff salads and of course some Pavlova for Dessert!

    Scrounging firewood

    Yeah not a fan of the Battery Saws at the moment, in time they may improve the battery life but for now I will happily stick to the 2 stroke engines. I've never drained bar oil out of any saw ever! I have some that leak but that depends on how thick the oil is I've found.

    Scrounging firewood

    Doesn't sound like much fun mate, the fuel must be fairly ordinary where you are by the sounds of it. I won't use any ethanol blends either and you are right about fuels these days they certainly aren't what they used to be that's for sure, the old days you could leave fuel in anything and go...

    Scrounging firewood

    You must have crap fuel there Philbert if you have to drain it after week! I can have fuel in a saw for a yr and it will run fine, most of my regular saws I use for wood cutting are run out of fuel each wood cutting session (usually finish cutting once the saws stop as that's a ute load anyway)...

    Scrounging firewood

    Thanks for that Philbert, I will have to have a bit of a look around and see what's what. I did have some bar oil here last year that got a bit thick over the winter period (was hard to get out of the bottle) but it was fine through the warmer mths, haven't seen that before with any of my other...

    Scrounging firewood

    Yeah I left bottle of cooking oil out in winter and it solidifies so I would say that's what causes that issue, I'm sure it would be fine in warmer climates.

    Scrounging firewood

    Sounds like some of the stuff I split here, it goes off with a real bang to point you think you broke something on the log splitter LOL

    Scrounging firewood

    I'm hearing you Matt, I was the same = drank like it was the last drink on earth, bloody hopeless, I've been pretty good to be honest the other day was the worst I've been since stopping. I have a few here and there but haven't felt like drinking that much again which is great, I will try and...

    Scrounging firewood

    Yeah you too mate, I had a few beers and a nice feed of Prawns (shrimp) for dinner. Time to sit back and watch a bit of cricket then time for bed. And Merry Xmas to you and all the members here who celebrate it.:drinking:

    Scrounging firewood

    That is severe alright, most loose their license depending on what range they go into and the fines go up accordingly. Some people do get locked up here too but they are usually repeat offenders and you have to offend a fair few times it would appear before you get locked up. I'm hearing you, I...
