    The reason I'm doing this saw really sucks. As most of you probably know......our friend Phil has passed away. He was far too young to be leaving this world.....and we will all miss him greatly. Not only has Phil left all us saw nuts behind, he also left a wife and family behind.

    This saw will be used to help raise a little money for Phil's wife.

    Dig deep guys.........this is a really good cause......and a really cool saw.

    Here's a link to the donation page.

    Some of you might know that the MS661 has not been released in the US yet........this saw wandered over from Canada somehow.

    A very hungry saw.......it tried to eat it's way outta the box already.

    [​IMG]

    Well.......it really does exist.......the MS661C

    The owner's manual got worn a bit somehow. Prolly while this beast was jumping the border.

    That is a sexy saw.....

    I really like the design of the clutch cover......very slick looking.

    Not a bad size outlet......but we can do better. :)

    My lovely wife helped me with the pics. She handles a camera pretty well, for a girl.

    Let's take a look under the hood.

    OK........the saw is all apart.....the jug is ready to start being machined. If y'all wanna discuss the way this think is built.......fire away.

    These are the plates I use to hold the jug in the lathe for cutting the squish.

    And this is how it goes together.

    Nice looking saw. Wish we weren't seeing this now for this reason.

    This is the only difference I found between the jug from last year's ill fated release of the 661, and this year's re-release.

    Nice! as always Randy. So how does this one compare to the first 661 you did? Same stock timing #'s?
