    I stopped by an independent shop looking for a bar for the Husky 261.99 that atvguns put on eBay for Stumpy, but they couldn't come up with one. However as I was looking at the used bars what did I spy leaning against the wall? Yep, a large mount 36" Stihl Bar, used, but not abused.............to bad I don't have a saw that will fit it.................:wink2:

    That's okay, because I found a similar saw to replace it, and I know where to get a bar for it.......:laugh:

    I see it's my turn, now. Sorry so slow, but I spent the last 24 hours on a romantic getaway with the wife - I hope you understand! :msp_sneaky::heart::rock:

    I looked though many pages here, but didn't find any info on the homelite 925 and the 10-10A - any info out there that might make my decision easier?
    Thanks!

    Here are our earlier posts about the saws, with pics. The McCulloch 10-10A is a 54cc piston ported saw. This one has an excellent engine. Good 16" hardnose bar. Rebuilt carb. New loop of Oregon 73 3/8" chisel chain. Some paint worn/knocked off. Small thumbnail sized bit broken off of the lower leading edge of the clutch cover (doesn't affect anything). Starts, idles, revs, and cuts great. A great old "vintage" firewood saw. Best with a 16-24" bar, but will run a 28" if you're not heavy handed. No AV. Takes the Oregon D276, Oregon D176, and Windsor TMX bars. THe TMX and D176 bars are still in production. Needs nothing, and is ready to run.

    The Homelite SXL-925 is an 82cc reed valve beast of an old "vintage" saw. Will run a 36" bar, but is best with a 20-30" bar. Chris is including a 20" sprocket tip bar with it. Takes the Oregon D096/D196 and Windsor UXL/TXL bars that are still in production. No AV Has a few minor things to fix that he has described in his posting:

    I don't think she's a member so Stephen's going to need to send her an e-mail.
