    Continuation of my lathe fund drive.

    Well I did a highlight of my build on OH PEA EEEE

    I brought it down to the cases. New nachi bearings oem gasket kit except I forgot to put that pesky base gasket in. So the compression is 175. :rock:
    I rewired it gave it a carb kit husky fuel filter and put in some after market fuel line.
    This is all oem except the fuel line and nachi bearings.
    I put the best covers I had on it.
    The seam on the gas tank was open. The screws were not tight. I cleaned it used seal all and tightened the screws. Hasn’t been a problem.

    I’m asking 400 pho plus shipping

    Pics coming

    That baby rips! When the recoil cover has the small square emblem does that mean its an older model? Oh yeah GLWS.

    This saw is in no way original. I put together the best looking and shape parts I had to make the best saw possible.

    Thank you

    Dang it! I was hoping you were closer so we could work out a payment arrangement. I don't have pay pal and I don't even know what friends and family is. GLWS. I wish I had the funds.

    Pay pal is easy to set up bro. Cash is king and im all about seein stuff in person. I dont have a clue who Dave is but ill bet hes a good AZZ dude. He has a good description, videos and actually says that it aint all original. He monster garaged this bEAtch and it rips!!! If u want it figure out pay pal and be happy. I would of already bought it if i didnt have a ported 272 on the way. I love the freestyylin after the cookies!:rock: The saw is mad and Dave is mad! Just whackin brush!!!! LOL!!!

    Good morning and thank you guys.
    This saw is a bunch of fun to run. I will build another for myself someday.

    I have a deal with a gent to accept payments. We agreed it was as long as it didn’t sell this weekend. Im trying to pull the cash together as quick as I can to get a lathe. So it’s fair game today but will be sold tomorrow.

    Congratulations on the sale and good luck with your lathe. There's something incredibly relaxing and satisfying about turning a wood craft.

    If you need help with that aspect you can swing though and I can either help you set up a PayPal account or you can hand me some cash and we can get the saw on the way for you.

    That's awesome! There are some really great guys on this site. I appreciate that you'd be willing to do that for me, a stranger. I have tech savvy friends and family but no one has the time anymore. Thank you for the offer. Maybe sometime we can just hang out and talk chainsaws.
