    Philbert Joins the Club!

    Wanted a bow bar for a long time (maybe as long as this thread has been up?) for show-and-tell / training purposes. Recently found one that happened to fit an MS290 that I also recently stumbled across! So now, I want to see if I can make a working combination.

    Anyone have a lead on a 'spike' (spur? stop? shoe? finger? not sure what the correct term is) to fit this bar? Or is it pretty much fabricate your own?

    Same question on the chain guards.

    OP has not been heard from in a long time.

    I hope he is doing well.

    Cliff is one of the original good old boys. I know there was a couple big fires in his area - I hope his place was spared.

    Whittier, near Los Angeles.

    I was in his area in 2007 for a fire near Mt. Baldy - I was going to give him a shout but didn't have a good number at the time.

    I was on those fires all around Lake Arrowhead about that time as well. I think we spent 35 days down there.
