I have been working on a cedar playhouse for my daughter. I planned on only using lumber I could mill myself out of the many cedars located on my property (I have hundreds of cedars). I have two junk poulan saws, an older I believe to be 42cc craftsman, a 70's model blue homelite and an old super XL orange homelite. I use the craftsman to fell the trees and limb them but I feel like its hard on the saw trying to rip post out of the cedar. The blue saw I believe would handle it better but i hate to do that to an antique. I have been looking for a decent saw for around $150 and may have found one, it is a stihl 029 super that the seller is asking $160 for. Says it starts and runs good but we shall see. I am going tomorrow to check it out. Anything specific to this saw I should look at before I decide to buy it? And would this get me by for very lite milling of 6x6 post from cedar? It will be a firewood saw after this project. Thank you all very much in advance.
