Who's the vendor?

I haven't found any, but would like to try one. Running an Oregon Power match plus bar from a standard stihl that we milled out to fit (30" .050x.375) the 084. Using an 8 tooth, but I know the saw would handle a 9, maybe a 10. Only problem with going bigger might be that the heel of the bar might not be big enough for the bigger sprocket. Back to the milling machine????
Madsen's for 3/8 9T-10T. $21-$23.

In a thread about 066's, I saw that people had problems fitting larger sprockets to their saws without modding the bars to make room for the larger sprocket. Can I expect this same problem to occur with a 9 or 10 tooth sprocket on my 084?

The fit issue is often with short bars (16 inch esp). 9T is likely fine, with 10T most likely not, 10T is getting iffy anyway as far as derailing the chain unless the bar is cut down from a longer bar.
