THALL......You're making Mr. Stihl real proud!
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.

Now now, lets not misquote the facts. Stihl and Hohl shut down making foreharths, not chainsaws. As for stealing idea's the biggest theft occured in 1959, guess who?,LOL

Wait a minute, what the hell am I doing talking Husky with you in the Stihl thread, start that Husky thread you ornery cuss. I wanna come visit and read and learn like Woodie does overhere,LOL
Looks like this is where we sit the winter out at. ole buddy
now I think you ment "Forehearths" if so what type ?

Hint: it has to do with glass

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.

That would be your second hint.

I'd tell ya but your telling the story
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.

Well it might be a long winter so don't complain. I also got another typer coming in thats gonna speed up the process so relax, it isn't gonna take that long, should be done by summer for sure.....
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:
