    Yeah, but that 111S you have is a real cream puff.....you just don’t find them like that anymore. Now I see the same 111S’ being passed along from collector to collector with the same missing/broken parts for large money!

    I think all of us buying J’reds a long time have a story like that about a saw we bought cheap on eBay that had an easy fix. Amazing at what point some previous owners give up on saws with easy fixes.

    I’m sure glad I’m not gettin’ into the hobby now.....the deals are all on Facebook and local sales.

    I had hoped that something would have come along and truly rivaled eBay by now. The only thing I see is that Ecstasy place and it pales in selection. And as far as Facebook, I’d like to see it go down in flames. Some of these companies have gotten so big that they have a life of their own, with or without their creators.......scary stuff. And don’t even get me started on the big cell phone company holdings. Talkin’ about 5G now with AI.....taking us to the “next level”......next level of what??? The Chinese have invested the most in 5G technology so far....want to be first. They also want back doors in everything so they can spy & steal from the rest of the world....lol!

    You can tell by the remaining silver paint that it's most likely a low hr saw. The silver paint is the first to go and looks really ratty in the old silver tops. That doesn't mean that some knucklehead didn't ruin the saw inside with a poor gas mix or whatever, but going by the remaining paint and originality....looks great!

    So the J’Red 2156 finally got delivered today.
    Bad omens begin when you see that the bar is hanging out the box.
    Was in an appalling state.
    Needed to be stripped (sorry no other pics, was far too embarrassing).
    The second pick is after 2 hours in a bath and still looking dreadful. One of the grimy and filthiest saws I’ve ever bought.

    Wow....! This looks like a saw that was NEVER cleaned. That's awful......hopefully under all the grime somewhere is a decent saw.

    That's true! Pitch and sawdust are very good paint preservatives.

    My 'Arkansas' 90 was so filthy that I kept it in a box for over a yr. Two days I spent de-griming that saw and getting the varnish out of the fuel tank. Old varnished fuel is bad though and can lift paint, especially inside the gas tank.

    Boy, that's something you don't see very often on CL anymore, even in my part of the country.

    I don't think that compression release is as easy to fix as he indicates and the leak in the gas tank itself is a known problem in the design.....also not easy to remedy. Still....it's nice to see one pop up outside of eBay.....although eBay has obviously influenced its price.

    Might have some interesting provenance. I bet cash might talk some in person.

    Oh Geeeeze.......I bought this the other day.....

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Jonsered-n...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649


    So......it came today......I buy bulk lots of Jonsereds NOS parts on ebay every time I can. Generally the outcome is favorable as was this.....haven't itemized the unknown to me parts yet but the well known parts that I've seen tell me I done good!!!! Some very usable NOS 70E parts like NOS plastic fan and a NOS piston kit....a new 910 half wrap and oil pump complete......a NOS top cover for a 920/930 Super with air filter cover.....half a dozen NOS 70E air filters....several 490/590 recoil springs as well as a NOS recoil spring for a 601/751.....lots of AV mounts...some I identify some not........good score overall I would say.....!!!

    I'd go look at it for ya, but it's clear over the mountains towards the coast...eight hr drive easy, one way.

    One thing about it...doesn't seem to matter anymore if something is broken or missing......the 111S still bring the big $$ on the bay.

    Individual prices for all that NLA stuff there WAY exceeds what you paid for it. Did you get a SEM's module for the older 70E's?

    Oh yeah.....a lot of very usable NOS parts and some used ones too.

    No SEM module.......however I have several used ones and one NOS one in stock. There are several sets of points.......at least for the 49 as well as several for the 52/621/60 etc. One cool NOS item is a points plate for a 49SP.....these are very rare to find new....the condenser is made into them...all one piece...
    Many more parts I didn't mention....gaskets ....chain adjusters....misc. stuff

    Thanks but no thanks. I have to get some money set aside for the taxedermist. Sometime in March or April he is gonna call and tell me my bear hide is done. And I gotta have the money to pay him.

    You did real well on that deal, Robin! You probably have one of the best NOS Jonsereds parts hoards in the world.

    Those misc parts definetly cool. I think I skipped over them looking at all the used saws and p&c's listed lately. Which were generally more than I valued them at!
