    Yes he does, I have seen him around a few times, seems to love what he is doing. I buy all my chainsaw stuff from Walker's too, they are a great saw shop, obviously very knowledgeable and good people too!

    +1 on checking him out. Really seems like a knowledgable guy, and a musician to boot!!!

    He puts together some top notch videos.

    Are you that lazy or just so inept that you can't type "Buckin Billy Ray" in the search bar of YouTube?

    He's got some merch out too that looks pretty sweet too.
    That old mac 10-10 in some of his newer vids runs pretty stout.

    Seems like a good hearted guy that loves what he does. Looks like he enjoys his channel/people on YouTube just as much.

    I watch a video every now and then. I especially like the older saws he runs. It's interesting to see what they can do and not too many people have the content he does with the saws he has.

    That man can file a chain awfully quick too.
    And I agree, he's is very passionate about his occupation, and axe restoration, music and all sorts of stuff, seems like a cool dude.

    As an Australian who happens to like old Mccullochs I find his stuff really interesting. He has a great mix of stuff and rather than being "how too" videos, I seem to learn a lot just by watching him work. He seems a genuinely "soulful" kind of guy and you have to love that his investment of time and energy into his channel seems to be paying off. I really love hearing about his part of the world and meeting the people there as well.

    @Woos31 was telling me about him.
    I guess he is from my town Nanaimo that I was raised in. I'll check him out
