    It's hammerite... do you get that in the States? It's quite tough actually....

    And regarding any gas or oil daring to touch it......I have a very steady hand.... :p

    Never heard of hammerite, we do have leaveright, ( leaver right where you found it ). Sorry couldn't resist. Seriously though, will be interesting to see how it holds up, keep us posted.

    Not on the bench but outside: Since it's getting close to winter thought this might be a good day to fix the heater on my truck. I'll know in a day or two if I actually did it any good..

    I've had to rewind the recoil spring on my CS-8000 3 or 4 times in the last month. What seems to work for me is winding it into the housing. Hook the outside end first, then coil it inside. Just spin the recoil assembly around and around so the spring can stay stretched out until it goes in. It's really not bad to do after the 3rd or 4th time....

    .....but I hope I don't have to do it again, I'll be PISSED.

    Yes, that's pretty much what we did. My wife was close by to steady the housing and yeah I hooked the outer looped end with a very small electrical screwdriver whilst winding it tighter in...fun part is the last 3 or so turns where the sharp edge of the spring starts to shave at the plastic of the rotor somewhat...and finally where you very carefully persuade the loop back into the recess. Shame I didn't get one of the kids to film it all mind :(

    Well, I've got a TS400 disk cutter to refurb soon (whole strip down I think)...I know for a fact the recoil spring is weak cos the start handle dangles and it doesn't rewind particularly well. Not looking forward to doing that bad boy...still at least I've had some practice with my MS341!

    Couple of saws from last spring, on on the right fires and runs 150 comp, it did make death rattle sounds,, one clutch spring was off, now sounds great, the other is lightly scored, they both came from loggers so lots of hours on them. But price was right,,

    Still waiting on parts from overseas, clutch springs for my 038, a PC kit for an 066 and a handlebar for same. Postage really backed up this year. I hear the airlines and USPS have settled their differences so maybe stuff may be coming my way..

    Springs came in yesterday. Awfully hard job to replace one broken spring! I ended up almost disassembling the whole saw to replace that little spring! Once I had the clutch off I found it very difficult to pull the spring hard enough to go into the hole. Needless to say I just replaced the one rather than the whole set..worked just fine, kept the other two springs for spares..

    I fashioned a piece of hard wire into a small loop to pull on the springs, still wasn't easy to get the spring in the hole.
