    Who knew that Santa's sleigh had a steering wheel on the right?

    I’d have guessed that he’d have one on the correct side of the vehicle :D

    All posted guys. They reckon 5-7 days. I have tracking info for one of you, will pm that to you later.

    Let me know when you have them please, once they have all arrived and all is well I will be ready for ‘round 2’ :muscle:

    Dang, I lost track of this thread for a few days and missed out.

    When you’re read to place another order, I’d be interested in a 3/8 gauge.

    Well I’m assuming USPS is lacking as normal. Still haven’t got mine in yet but doesn’t stop me from checking the mailbox like a child ever day! Lol

    Round two is open guys. Please post on here what you want and send me a pm as well; duplicate info is useful. I’ll give it 14 days from now for people to show interest and send me a PayPal payment and then I’ll order them :chainsaw:

    Count me in for a 3/8.

    Anyone had a chance to cut with a chain that’s had rakers set with these? Am I right in assuming they are a life-changing improvement?

    Keep them coming guys. Let me have the weekend to refresh myself on the prices etc, which I’m sure won’t have changed, and I’ll respond with totals

    One observation:. These allow filing rakers exactly as the fops...but... easier to handle, imo.
    I did discover that the LP gauge would not work on a friend's Homlite saw with crazy anti-kick links.
    I had to use an old style raker guide for that chain.
    I usually grind all the AKB crap off but it wasn't my saw :p

    Hello guys

    The gauges are still £4.50 each.

    The padded envelope is £0.50.

    Postage options are as follows: -

    1) Tracked & signed for airmail £9.50
    2) Airmail £5.00

    Airmail is 5-7 days apparently but it mostly took considerably longer with the last batch.

    I will ship when full payment has cleared. PayPal has proven to be the only way that works so far, so please figure out what you want, send payment to [email protected] and I will order the gauges and forward them on. I’ll give it 7 days for people to send payment and then I will order the gauges. If you miss the 7 day deadline don’t worry, I can do a round 3 etc.

    I hope that all makes sense, and questions fire away :sweet:

    Oh and remember it is British pounds (£) and not Euros (€)...PayPal has a built in converter so it should be easy enough to send the right amount
