Recently I made a gruesome mistake, and posted this in the trading Post... My bad. I really didn't intend to make people think I was pushing an agenda to swamp the logging market with aftermarket kit saws.... So I have been asked to move this conversation here. The point of this thread is to connect with like minded people who don't want or need to spend a ton of money on an OEM saw, but see the clones as a viable option for their situation... I have built many and have actively sold them now for 3 years.... If you are interested in them and either want information regarding building them, or want me to build one for you, I'm here. THIS THREAD IS NOT INTENDED AS A MEANS TO PUSH SOME FINANCIAL AGENDA, OR TO CRASH THE AMERICAN ECONOMY, OR TO DISCUSS HOW MUCH LOWER QUALITY THEY ARE... EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT THESE SAWS ARE, SO IF YOU ARE ADAMANTLY AGAINST THEM, THEN ITS REALLY NOT NECESSARY FOR YOU TO CHIME IN. I simply want people to know that if they are scared to buy one for fear of getting ripped off, or don't want to buy one because you don't know how to build it, I can help you.
