    Love the old electric saws. Most people pass them up, but I grab every one I can, especially the big 3 phase two man models. True monsters of the chainsaw world - nothing is heavier!

    Was going to offer it to you, but I think shipping would kill that idea

    I think they were made by Stanley, licensed from GM for the name and sold at Wal-Mart long time ago. Don't see them anymore.

    If got and old wrench set that came in a blue tool pouch with GM in white letters, cheap made set, look worst than a dollar store hammer.

    Not really, good dys tools, won't used them to make a living with, if it breaks, you're out of a tool. I stop buying Snap-on and Matco a while back, prices started getting ridicules. I've been buying a few sockets from Home Depot and Lowes, have had good success with them. Lowes impact and air ratchets are good. Been running a 3/8 drive impact and air ratchet for 7 years every day in the shop without any problems.

    Forgot to add, Craftsman wrenches are good also if it's still made in the USA.

    Looks like something off a big milling saw from long ago.

    Where are you located in Washington? I'll be over in early November to pick up a bunch of old two man saws for shipping back to Australia. Maybe we can catch up, or work something out.

    Send me a pm and we can go from there.

    Thanks!

    It so close, I put the covers on to see what it is going to look like.
    I still have to get that stupid Oiler hose on and maybe get a fuel line. [​IMG][​IMG]
