    Hi My company does regular weekly checks on a Stihl saw by basically starting it up and running it at high revs for 20 seconds and then shutting down. It rarely gets used for cutting. Can someone tell me if this is bad for the saw and how it is bad, and also if so if there is any evidence or...

    Good Review!

    I recently purchased a 395xp from dustinwilt68. I just wanted to post this to absolutely praise him. He has been extremely prompt in answering my questions, keeping me updated on everything he was doing with my particular saw, and has worked very hard to get it out to me on time. He even took...

    What gloves do y’all use when running a saw? I typically use a impact resistant type glove when I’m handling wood but don’t care for them running a saw? I’ve used mecha-flex glove and seen to work but don’t last? I would like something thin and flexible and a strapped cuff or tight cuff so...

    Wright Pneumatic Reciprocating Saw

    I am looking to figure out a reasonable value of a 1960s era saw made by Wright, and also if there would even be a market for this type of saw. I guess I could slap the label of "vintage" on it, and give it an air of collectibility. But is the $150 I am asking unrealistic for something this old...

    Finally, a carburetor diaphragm that will last.

    Coming soon.... New from Walbro the Spiral Metering Diaphragm. Quite impressive. I think this is good for more than just saws. Weedeaters! Just think between this and electric lawn equipment, carbs that last longer! http://www.walbro.com/spiraldiaphragm/

    Climbing gear essentials

    I'd like to start climbing, but I'm not really sure where to start gearwise. Would it be better/cheaper to piece together my own gear, or to just buy something like the Entry level spur and rope kit from Wesspur? Any good resources to look at? It's going to be recreational for now, but I...

    Huztl FarmerTec What Saw Build Kit Would You Like to See Them Make?

    First off they are making a drill attachment for the chain saw. That really would come in handy anytime you don't have access to electricity, or like putting up fence for example. There is a winch that can be coupled with a saw that might be interesting what do you think? On the Husky...
