got a 026 that you guys have been helping with since i was a newbie(still am) after trying all the things you guys have mentioned I'm pretty sure the crank seals are bad. Regardless the saw is in rough shape, I got a brand new husky last year and thought I'd tear down the saw completely, mod it a little, repaint it etc. Didn't know if there was generic step by step to follow or if each saw was too specific.

Saw Mill Chain Saw

I am thinking of building a homemade Saw Mill. What size Saw would be good for milling lumber? Thanks for any suggestions on size and brand.

Great sticky thread, gents! I planned on doing a bunch of reading and then getting to work, but I think I may have to just sit and look at Chris's avatar for a while.....:dizzy:

How 'bout a list of abbreviations? Some of this stuff I don't understand. I sawed with the same ole Stihl for 20 years & didn't keep up on saws.

Examples: MS 441 C-Q STIHL Magnum® Chain Saw

MS?
C-Q.......C? Q?

I see other things like AV, etc. Perhaps a list of what these mean would be nice, surely it would help me.
