If you've got one in your stash that you're willing to part with, let me know. Thanks
Hmm I've never heard of such a thing but they do seem to exist according to older forum posts. Can't even find a pic of one. Could it be another 2-series wrap handle that works on it?
I think I have a full wrap from a 266 and I know I have a 262 in the garage. I'll see if they mate together after work. I've really been thinking about buying the tools to make custom full wrap handles. Another reason to buy a TIG.
Cool. I appreciate you checking. I think @Jacob J. might have a couple, but probably not willing to part with 'em.
I don't know why my name gets thrown into the mix on these things, but no, I do not have a couple 262 full-wraps. I have one that's currently on a running saw
that I've had for going on ten years and is also one of my main go-to saws.
I meant no offense, brother. Thought I read awhile back you scored a couple off Ebay. My mistake.
No offense taken - another member here did score a couple of those handles and subsequently sold one to another member. I didn't score any but I've seen
several NOS ones on ebay over the years. They pop up from time to time. I have scored two Pro-Safety full wraps for 288 recently on a local deal and I may
end up trading one of those.
I believe pro safety is who.made the 262 wrap, but from my understanding they are a very rare piece. Last one I saw was on FB and covered in duct tape.
I have one that’s not in the best shape, but with a little work might turn out ok. If interested let me know and I can get pictures tomorrow
Finally remembered to see if a 266 full wrap would work and it doesn’t appear so
Unfortunately the 154/254/261/262 handlebar mounts are a specific animal. I think a 51/55 handle could be made to work but that's not
much help when a someone is looking for a full wrap, unless they can take two half-wraps and make a full.
I don’t have the capabilities to weld aluminum yet. I’m about to pull the trigger on a tig welder though. Will need to learn how to use it since I’ve only ever done mig. Then I plan on setting up my jd2 tube bender so I can make handles or modify them. I think it will be a cool option when modding saws for people.
