Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

Ok, for those of you who get there tidy whities all bunched up when people post for sale ads and don't list a price, feel free to hit the back button now. I honestly don't know what to price these at, or if I even want to sell them.

Saw #1 is very clearly a magnum. 90 psi compression. It has spark.... It's a weak spark but it's there. It's missing a recoil but otherwise appears to be complete.

Saw #2 is a 056 something but I don't know what. It's got around 120 psi ( keep in mind that's at 4000 ft elevation, not bad ). It's also missing a recoil. Has no spark. A full wrap handlebar, appears to be complete for the most part.

I honestly don't know if I want to sell these, or if I did what I would sell them for. I'm tempted to put the two together and make a runner out of it, but it would also be nice to pass them along to somebody that could definitely put them to use.

Please feel free to make an offer for cash, trade for other awesome saws, large quantities of good beer, a new Ford F150, hang gliders, or sandwiches.

Sorry to be wishy-washy but I genuinely want to see someone put together a nice saw out of these. Make an offer if your interested.

John

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Just getting these cleaned up. If no one is interested here, there going to ebay. I wish I had time to put the two together but I dont.

Also, these compression readings are at 4000 ft elevation. If you subscribe to the 3% per 1000 ft rule, compression would be somewhere around 150 at sea level the badge less one.

I spin counterclockwise. I haven't had a nut come off yet. Sometimes, if I think the saw has been sitting awhile, I'll pour a little mix in there just to lubricate the piston. Start by turning by hand just to make sure the piston is moving freely, the then low speed on the drill.

I've done side-by-side comparisons before between the drill and a recoil starter and I can usually get a few more pounds out of a recoil but it's accurate enough to give you an idea.

My issue is my elevation. I avoid talking about specific compression numbers because people see my readings and think they're too low. I have a saw that's 120 or over and it's game on for me.

I figured you had a handle on it. I'm kinda surprised the nut doesn't come loose though.

Geez, I didn't realize that Klamath Falls was situated that high. I'd like to bring my fishpole & visit that area one day.

I'm actually in Chiloquin, which is about 20 miles north of kfalls. There's really big redbands in the lake, but they're pretty elusive. When the water warms up in the summer, they swim up the Williamson river and the wood river right by my house. I'm still pretty new to the area, but I've had some success fishing on those rivers..I haven't caught my monster fish yet though.

I see your in SW washington. I'm from the Portland area until a couple of years ago. Caught a lot of steelhead on the Cowlitz, Kalama and Lewis. Fun rivers.
