• 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.
  • 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.

EDIT, I found the messages I was looking for sorry.


I cannot find what I am looking for,
One or two of you told me you may have a case that this saw would fit in. I had mentioned I wanted to buy a case but did not because I did not have the saw.
Well now I have it and I would like to buy a case if anyone reading this was one of the guys that said they had one please let me know.

Texas, but spend time in Vermont
Without further adue, She arrived at about 2:30pm today. I looked it over closely and it appears to have had very little use not a scratch anywhere that I saw. Maybe a cord or 2 ? who knows. I usually mix my saw gas 50:1 but I made up some fresh gas at about 7/8 of a gallon to the same amount of oil so it is between 40 and 50 to 1 I did not know the gasoline to oil measurement for 40:1. She had to be choked and pulled about 7 times then it popped. I shut off the choke and she sat right in my hands idling very rich though . I found the carb and leaned it out a touch and it seems ok now. I will have to run it a bit to be sure but that will have to wait till the weekend. The chain looks new except maybe a little dull I would guess that whoever owned it got the chain dull and instead of sharpening the chain they lowered the rackers. All of them have a filed flat top about 2mm long. I guess either the chain was made like that or someone said " dude file them things down and she will cut like hell" I opt for the second scenario. Here are some pictures for your Poulan Pro **** fix. It is actually quite dirty if you spent a 1/2 hour with some simple green I could sell it as a one tank of fuel saw I bet it looks that good. I am very happy] View attachment 561103 View attachment 561105 View attachment 561106 View attachment 561108 View attachment 561109
Oil ratios are straight forward. Simply divide your ratio into 128. For example 40 /1 is 128 /40 = 3.2 oz. of oil.

Glad you got the saw Jeff! I just clicked on this thread for the first time tonight. Otherwise, I would have certainly jumped in the car to help out if I could have. I have purchased from Jeff in the past and everything was exactly as described. Communication was excellent as well. You can take his word on how things went with this deal to the bank. Just happy it worked out okay for both sides.

Cheers,
Scott

Now my question is what was the tracking number or when was it actually sent. We own rental properties among a couple states and now require direct transfers to alleviate the "I mailed it"

Thank you for saying that Scott, I don't think it matters if you buy or sell a $10.00 saw or a $1,000.00 saw you need to communicate with each other till you both are sure each other are happy with the outcome. Now just to show my ignorance a little more what saw did you buy from me? Mini Mac, or Homelite or the big Remington?
