I have inherited a C-51 in excellent condition. I am interested in using an Alaskan mill for cutting 3-4" lumber for turning and carving. Would the C-51 work reasonably well for occasional ripping? I would like a longer bar (30-36" vs current 20). Any recommendations on bar length or chain (3/8 vs 404) for this saw? I'd especially like hearing from anyone who has used this saw for milling.
