    @svk Both those 13" bars I bought were carlton. I also had one that was a windsor. The carlton bars are newer so they should still be making them.

    I could ***** but it will either fall on deaf ears or cause chewing on the wrong ass so I will just vote with my feet on the next purchase. Of four special orders over the past two years: two never arrived, one arrived incorrect, and the last showed up weeks late. Definitely the downside of purchasing from a larger company where saws and saw part sales are not a major portion of their revenue. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I'll just purchase from Bob in the future even if it means I have to pay a little extra in the event that he can't price match. Sucks too cause he had them in stock. I missed out on three weekends of prime cutting. Now I will get it with one or two weekends to cut before deer season.

    If you want the best local price for a saw you buy there, and like I mentioned they had my friend's 357 rebuilt in 3 days....but if you need special order parts fugedaboutit.

    I am curious if TSC could have ordered it for me.

    Just searched TSC website and no results for that model. Usually if they have a product but it’s not carried in stores it shows on website.

    Interesting. I’m wondering if they did sort of a soft introduction. It appears it is going to be the successor to the less than stellar 120/240 saws and maybe they want to clear those out first.

    Some pics from the W/E roofing project with my Nephew (Mechanic Matt) and his Nephews (4 of them came).

    Finished the roof project on Sat, did soffits on Sun Morn, and we also cleared shooting lanes for 4 tree stands on Sun afternoon.

    Only 3 of us stayed overnight, the other 3 left after dinner on Sat.

    Wayne and I finished up the bone pile today. Everything left can be burnt where it lays. Any more cutting on that property is ours.

    Black locust is my new favorite wood for the stove. It is naturally dryer than most and splits easy. When you burn it it does take a bit longer to get going but DANG it burns hot and slow. Last a long time. Longer than oak i think.

    And i have 4.5 cords of it to burn this year. The rest (1.5 more cord) is a bit of maple, cherry, cotton wood (), oak and a tiny bit of black walnut

    Been a while fella. Had a great weekend getting away from work and getting my hands dirty up at the cabin. Always fun spending time with my Uncle. To my four nephews that came to help, Mustang Mike is a living legend 9EA7E9E9-8D52-45F4-8CD0-342E55285895.jpeg 897D911A-80AD-47AA-81B8-D65C7580779F.jpeg 4C33C12F-E244-4243-91DB-D9951C93A0F9.jpeg 1436F9A3-0E73-4414-85D5-8717AD213DDD.jpeg

    I’m not known as Matt up at camp, it’s HopSing when at the Cabin. Somehow, still in disbelief, Mustang Mike whooped me twice in cards.

    Don't get me wrong I love the 420hp.

    There are many that lose a lifter~>valve~>piston at 75-100k and general consensus is AFM system is the cause. Delete is $400 but voids the warranty so... Not really a fix for most.

    I have a couple different friends who have used car lots and junk yards so I hear about common issues a lot. They avoid 1/2t chevs 2007~up and the main reason is the heads are so expensive to have done. Which almost always self destruct without warning.

    Kinda like the caravan transmissions some got lucky mine had 3 transmissions at 33k. Ford focus same deal.
