    Don't really know Dennis, the book doesn't seem to cover that but I'm typing it almost word for word so if its in there you will find out.

    BTW Dennis did ya take a look at that green rep I sent ya with the message?
    Take it to heart ole feller or be prepared, I got no more repect for you than you have of me so if you wanna smart mouth me then like the message said, LETS ROCK!

    Back to ya question now I don't recall anyone ever saying Stihl cut timber or ran saws, he designed, built and sold saws far as I know. Don't you worry though, if its in the book I'll type it for ya.

    Now, Now, Now, Woodie
    Let Tom tell his story.

    keep in mind Husqvarna was a mere 216 year old company in 1923.

    The equity put up of both partners, which was paid in cash, is 500,000 Marks each. Sounds like alot of money , but inflation is running wild in Germany. The actual value of the money shown as capital is revealed by the amounts that had to be paid for the entry in the commercail register and publication of that entry in the Imperail Gazette. It was 5,775 million Marks, plus 200,000 Marks in corporation tax.

    The young engineers are very active. Among other things, they develop forehearth systems which they offer for sale as the Stihl-Hohl System.

    The young company is not successful. Although inflation is ended by a currency reform in Nov. 1923, the new currency does not bennift the firm. It makes high operating costs as Andreas Stihl later reports. For this reason the partners decide in March 1926 to wind up the company without going into liquidation, as subsequently stated in the application for deregistration of the firm.

    However cancellation of the firms registration in the commercial register is forgotton for the time being. Andreas Stihl was too involved with new projects. Only after receiving a warning that an administrative fine of 20
    Reichsmarks will be imposed on each partner was the officially required application submitted to the Registration Court in September. On Dec.14,1926
    and entry is made in the Stuttgart commercial register that Stihl&Hohl was
    dissvolved. None of our creditors were harmed by the dissolution reports
    Andreas Stihl, we paid back our creditors in monthly installments with interest and compound interest by 1932.

    Neither the failure of Stihl&Hohl nor the repayments following the dissolution discourage Andreas Stihl from undertaking a second attempt as an enterpreneur. Alone this time, without any partners or any outside assistance. While still in 1926 the Registration Court is waiting for the deregistration of the old company, he opens A.Stihl Engineering Consultancy in Rotebuhlstrafse 43 in Stuttgart.

    {more to come}

    Well lookie there, where you been ole boy. Now to be fair I think someone ought to start a thread on the history of Husqvarna so we all can sit back and read about both companies. Whatcha say Manual, I'd be glad to read it, seriously I would. Little is really known about either of the big two saw makers so get that thread going man.
