    Just wondering if there are any chainsaw collectors around my neck of the woods. I'm up in Manistee County, MI. I'm starting a collection myself. Mostly 70s Macs. I can't be the only one around here with the Yellow Fever. But if you collect any type and live nearby, gimmie a shout.

    Not a collector, just a user with a few different saws. I maintain trails on my property and help my dad cut firewood. Petoskey, Mi.

    Nope. My idea was for 100 lb tank with regulator and hose. Just like putting a Magnum sticker on it.

    Pretty sure I made that just to instigate Custer's buddy Chas Howlett in response to his external slr mod. Lmao. Turning 15k in the cut or whatever it was.

    Jeez I really am getting old and senile. I would have sworn Dahmer had the propane idea lol. I also forgot/didn't realize Custer and Chas were close! That Chas sure had some funny ideas (and shady practices). I remember his dual spark plug power claims lol.

    I'm not sure which happened first lol. He probably threw the idea up first and my saw just happened to be sitting there next to a 1 pounder and solo cup.

    Best part of that vid was the end where the piece of firewood he was using to keep his rotten log from rolling came off and got jammed up and stalled the saw out. Then he plays it off like he meant to do it. Friggin classic.
