    What? Where? Who? When did the fools start copying saws?

    We are talking about saws guys, not vaccum cleaners, rifles, shotguns, appliances, sewing machines, nose hair trimmers, paper arse gaskets, and other poop.:buttkick:

    Don't know bout all that but I'll tell ya this, no matter how much these cats come and play around and tease and torment the story will be told. Maybe after its all said and done I'll get the mods to delete all the posts cept for the story itself and then all the readers can sit back and read it without all the non-sense. See Dennis I'm ahead of the game, relax ole feller, were not gonna disrepect the man, you'll see.

    Welp I just looked and it doesn't say anything about glass at all. There's a paragraph that descibes how it works, something about two separate heating chambers tranferring heat to water.

    Well it has a picture of it here and it looks like a big metal stand up tank with a door in the front. Book only has a paragraph on it and a picture. He wasn't long into these things for the chainsaw is right around the corner.

    Juuuuuuuuust skip to the page where it says "Stihl got passed by Husqvarna in sales, quality, and smooooooothness."

    Then again, if you're only on page four, that's just two pages away... :buttkick:
