  1. Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  2. To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.

    Hey Guys-

    I'm chasing a ghost of a saw- the Pioneer P-35. Apparently it was a prototype for a new model about the time OMC started winding down their chainsaw division. As a long-time Pioneer fan, I'd love to see one of these in person. I'll gladly buy or trade for one. thanks.

    Hi
    It's on my holy grail list too.
    I saw a new unfired one and about a week later got to hold a used one that was owned by the guy who sold the new unfired one.
    Interesting story with the saws,his estimate is there are about 50 unaccounted for.
    I think I'm about number 21 on the list of people that will buy his used one.

    I'm not really expecting to find one, but I know there's a few out there. I too have heard that there might be as many as 50 or so floating around, but I've also heard that only six were made. There's a guy right now on Kijiji looking for a top cover for his. I sent him a message that having one 3-D printed might be his best option.

    I think the only ones that made it to OZ were brought in by collectors?

    It is one cool looking saw. I think if the parent company hadn't pulled the plug, that saw would have been a winner on the primary market.

    I suspect that you're right.
