• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

Yep, he is way over priced on porting imo
Yeah , well maybe for some yes ... there’s a guy in Canada charging 995 for “bakerization” lol ... all porting ain’t created equal either ... I’ve run quite a few ported saws from different builders and I (and many others ) prefer Hotsaws101 ... it’s not just porting it’s the whole package so consider that fact ... great saws for felling and bucking and so far both saws I had done (241c and 461R ) have paid for themselves many times over ... yeah you can get a $350 job but ain’t the total package in my opinion ... besides you get a peek into his thought process which for Someone doing is his own saws is well-worth ! You pay for experience one way or the other my friend ... either ya start grinding away and blow up some along the learning curve or you PAY for experience and fast-forward your skills immensely ... if you wanted to learn guitar wood you get a guy off the bar stool to show you or PAY for lessons from Van Halen ? I choose to go with the best teacher I can afford but that just my take on it !

Yeah when the most sough after builders in the states charge around 300.00 to port a saw there is no argument, the godfather of porting saws only charges 300.00 and he does whole package, cylinder, muffler and any carb mods. Anyone paying more is just throwing away good money, I have yet to see any of hotsaws wow me enough to pay more.

a 441 magnum can be had for a grand brand new
Yeppers , but ya gotta understand that here in wny we have A lot of EAB infested dead ash (I’m sure you do to ) Been doin some takedowns/ Processing ... most of the trees are 20” under at the stump - some are 25” plus ... drop em and dice em up with ported 461R until the wood gets 14” under ... then take over with the ported 241c ... could I cut em with a stocker 441 mag ? Yeppers ... but when your buck depends on speed then the ported saws shine ! Plus as you well know having ported saws yourself ... they are a RIOT to run ! I guess we could go back old-school and chop the tree down with the axe and buck up with a 2-man saw ( and I have mucho respect for that - I gotta have some pipes/stamina) but if for gain ya can’t coach speed !!!

All the guys I know that port saws port them to get the most out of them that will last in real working conditions, seems odd to me to have stages of porting and charge more money, I have helped port quite a few saws with a fellow porter who has been gracious enough to share his knowledge, not once was it mentioned that he could get more from the saw if the customer was willing to pay more money, just not a good business model IMO.
