    That is the norm. Unless you are practically given the saw. Most saws on here are priced so out of line that for a sawbuck more you could buy a new one.

    I also recommend buying the stihl tool kit. It’s a little pricey but we’ll be way cheaper than buying them as you go.

    Most men like to work on stuff, it’s just the nature of the beast. Chainsaws are probably the easiest thing I’ve come across to work on with the most minimal tools needed to do so. It’s a fun hobby. I’ve got about every tool a man could have in my shop and work on so many different things. I, too, just fell into chainsaw repair. Probably because it’s cheap, so simple my 14 year old can do it, you can easily drink beer as you’re doing it, you can make money from it, and it beats the hell out of staring blindly at a television set.

    enjoy the new hobby.

    Spoon carving. You forgot Gumtree and most importantly word of mouth... Ask everyone. Over half my saws have come this way.

    Huskybill, i get most of my toys sent to work, it saves a lot of hassle. :)

    I have gone from no saws to 7 in two months. Two will be "work saws", 1 to build with my 9yo as he kept asking to help and the rest just because. (Plus an 8th coming but it is a parts donor saw for one of the seven, so doesn't count)

    These things are so much fun to tinker with. I had lost the joy when it came to tinkering, now it's back and I'm happy.

    Bad enough, you are a Pom that relocated to the convict Isle........ but keeping powersaws inside, hiding them from the single best person to walk into your life?
    You are a sad man Tommy! :happybanana:

    Just clear a space in the yard and have a double bay detached workshop built, resplendent with custom shelving and camera surveillance for your babies......... best find room in a corner in there somewhere though....... for a single bed! :laughing:

    Isn't a classic sign of addiction trying to hide the behavior from loved ones?

    :D

    Tell your lady it could be worse, i have a (cleaned) p&c plus files and tools etc over half the top of the chest of draws in our bedroom. Oh and a dremel in the bathroom. (better light than in the shed + I'm just a "hey dad, mum wants a hand with..." away)

    You found a passion and you need to build on it.
    Everyone becomes obsessive about something and never follows it to its potential.

    Keep after it man and follow your passion.

    Bahaha, she wouldn’t have said anything, instead gave me that look, eyebrows raised, seething, the one your teacher gives you before she flipped in class? Yeah... worse than when they shout at you!

    99% of the time I tell her everything to relieve the guilt of spending money on something unecessary! Haha

    @Bob Hedgecutter in fact you’ll know exactly... she’s a strong willed, stubborn Kiwi.

    So? She will kick your ass if you get too far out of line, a good Kiwi woman is hard to beat in that respect........ unless you decide to live with a redhead from Norn Iron!
