Near us Steve?
I wanna see one.
I got to agree totally.
The time it takes to make all these gauges and measure and feed the formula I’ll be cutting during that time with my”hit it a couple of times with the file” chains and outfit him.
Cedar Grove Rob. Keep October 26 open.
Yep, if you want it done you will probably have to do it yourself. There are a lot of folks around here waaaaaaaaay better equipped to repair every aspect of a chainsaw than the majority of the branded dealerships. Nature of the beast these days.
I work my stuff, nobody else’s and nobody else works mine. Everybody's happy.
Very Star Trek looking. Can't tell if you are being serious or trolling me!
All I 'gots' is one of these:
It is real. Lots and lots of light pointed directly at my line of sight. Not heavy, in fact I barely notice it there. There are many different looking ones, many are less Star Trek looking but all put the light right where you need it.
I probably spend way more time then I should cleaning and maintaining my saws. But measuring the depth gauge to 1/1000ths is IMO a giant waste of time. But for the super gadgety guys, if that is what blows your hair back, then go for it.
Would be handy when I hit the Mammary Bars!!!!
It is important to get correct dollar bill placement!!!!
I am surprised they would even take your $s. Your happy look of approval is likely priceless to those dedicated entertainers.
the stihl usg is precise
PA or NJ?
And the right denomination!!!!!
I too cut in the winter then in the spring I carry tree length to where I want to split it with the tractor bucket clamp. Then with the tree up 3-4 feet above the ground I saw it stove length. No dirt no dust of any sort just clean hardwood.
@MontanaResident Link for this? Looks interesting.
Night vision sharpening?
Cutter edge target acquisition for the precision guided cruise grinder?
Yeap it also amazes me how many shops up there with you blokes will not shorten chain or make chains off a roll it's the only way you buy chain here if a saw shop didn't join chain then they are not really a saw shop in my eyes. Saying that there is only 1 shop in town who can dress a bar but close rails or regrind a groove forget about it. I dress my own old bars with a square a light and an angle grinder. You don't really need all the flash gear especially for a weekend firewood hack and why throw away a nice old Windsor bar from the 70s with really good steel. I hand file all my chain at smoko times at work I have learnt heaps here and now they cut very well. I'm a believer in the teeth can vary quite a bit to cut well as long as the rakers are set to each tooth and yes philbert is right they may be a little shaky perhaps or could cut a bit faster but once again for a firewood guy it eather cuts nicely and straight or it don't
Turn up the volume pm800 with old type muffler hand filed no guide semi
Jethro I hear ya brother. I started out filing chains in the late 60’s/70’s. I learned to use the FG to hit the very top edge of the tooth, I hog out the gullet with just a file. The rakers I do by eye making the same number of passes. My chains cut perfect. My bars I square on a HF 1”/30” belt sander $59.
If I wasn’t doing it right my chains and bars would cut on an angle. One more important think is I grinned down a hacksaw blade to fit inside the groove in the bar to pull out the saw dust. I grinder a hook parrot bill on the knife edge, I bolted it to a file handle I slotted. You must keep the groove in your bar clean too so the oil can flow.
Don’t forget to open up the gullet. It’s like chewing a mouth full of food and can’t swallow. The chips need to exit, exhaust faster than the chain can cut. Once you set the rakers even with the height tool or it’s a new chain that’s cutting saw dust make two even passes on each raker they will be equal. Once you get the hang of looking straight down the bar you can eyeball the rakers together in-line of sight.
In the world of hand grenades it is a shot gun held by a blind guy. I know more individuals that own those than I have been to Stihl dealerships that use them, might take a look at one later this week.
I seem to have started a grinder collection, not as interesting as files however nifty in its own way.
