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.
The Stihl workshop manufactured a number of other products, including forehearths for steam boilers,


Well guess Ole Stihl was dealing with hot air all along. LOL

Just to be fair

An engineer, Andreas Stihl nonetheless began his career as a salesman for a German mill and industrial supply house during the 1920s. Stihl's work brought him in contact with loggers in the Black Forest, where the felling and bucking of trees was done with stationary saws or by hand, and the larger pieces of timber needed to be transported to saw mills for cutting. Stihl sought to introduce more modern methods to the logging trade.

So when did you get the book Barnacle Parp's Chain Saw Guide, I got it too.

Of course, once the lumber got to those mills, it was very likely processed on Jonsereds equipment, which, as you know manual, had already been in production some fourty years by then...

Your on target,
Stihl is still seeking a more modern saw.

Great idea

Thanks Tom for doing this. I don't post all that often, unless I have a question or comment. I love history and this is some history that you don't find all that easily. Arguing about which chainsaw is best pretty much bores me, but this is great. Keep the info coming. JR

Viking is Stihl's line of lawn mowers. (And by the way, Husqvarna sewing machines are no longer made or sold by the Husqvarna we all know and love. A company bought the line lock, stock, and barrel.)
