Well for those who have looked and never found
Got this fair looking, excellent running 70:
A 125 (Rex) from Lee that I rebuilt:
A full wrap Rex I traded away from Cliff:
Let's not forget this 635.
Solo 690 I got the other day
Not my sign
Since buying old original Solo signs is not only expensive and hard to find I bought a replica sign

I think Solo saws are the best on the market. They are like Dolmars, but better designed and even more poorly represented in the market. What gives?
I have a Homelite 47 which is a Solo x47 and it's a very nice runner. Light and maneuverability with about a 15" .325 chain. The exhaust seems to have burnt the plastic body a little even though it isn't pointed in that direction. It must have been heat coming back off of some wood. Anyway doesn't effect performance. I liked this one enough to buy a 54 unseen but sadly it was really poor shape so sold of a couple of bits. P&C toast but if anybody needs parts they are your for the postage.
Regards and Merry Christmas,
Yeah the 290/340 Homelites and the 647/654 were prone to shaking their carbs loose the 2 bolts holding on the manifold would keep coming loose I repaired a lot of them
I saw my first 675 Solo yesterday, but it was all torn apart waiting a rebuild.
That's a nice bunch of old saws.
Picked up a 639 recently and am trying to track down some of the throttle assembly parts anyone have a idea where I could purchase some parts for this saw. Doesn't look like its seen much use so I would like to get it going and see what these Solo's are all about.
Hi not yours but mine lol cost me big money and made my wife not very happy cheers Kevin
Hi is it a 690 or 603? It has the large 603 log spike on it?
