I hate to even think about how many pieces of power equipment have been scrapped that could have been easily fixed, it's just the way it is. For example, if you look for parts for vintage Ariens snowblowers on eBay you will see many of them selling for high prices. Yet i still occasionally see a vintage Ariens thrown out completely.

The way i see it, the relatively cheap prices on many vintage saws is an opportunity for collectors. I can still grab up a fixable 40 - 50 year old Mcculloch for around 20 bucks like i just did.

The Mccullochs that seem to be commanding higher prices are the big displacement direct drive saws like the SP 125.

I have been keeping busy lately just trying to sort out bars and chain loops. Turns out the NOS bars I had drug over earlier (previous page) were only part of what I had scattered around. I think I have all of the "loose" bars now moved over to the new building, a bunch of used bars for the 10 Series and smaller saws are up in the attic, all of the McCulloch branded bars and most of my used large frame bars are now up on the wall in the new shop.

Mostly 10 Series but a few large frame bars mixed in

And a few NOS Homelite bars

One of the coolest I have uncovered so far, look at the intricate etching.

I sold an old Mac bar to a member here, it had the "Flying Geese" logo on it. It was a great wall hanger for over a door. I purged my collection of a lot of one of a kind stuff. I know I had a 52" Homelite bar, and I think the Mac was 48".

Just hate to see all those poor 10 series "orphaned" bars. They would all be loved here. Send em on.:):D

Sooo, how does one go about locating oneself a drone engine AND a drone?
Probably the same way one found all of the other oddities I suppose.

Unbelievable collection Mark! Cant wait to see it all when you get it open. I'm sure it will continue to evolve and change as you move things around and improve design and flow.

Philbert does not have that bar collection; or that wall space.

If Mark wanted it to be really impressive, he would have sorted the bars by musical tones; like a giant xylophone. Then he could have Tom Hanks come to the grand opening.

That would make for an awesome door chime when someone comes in.

Chainsaw bar wind chimes?

I think I finally have all of the bars and chains located in their new homes. I have a nice selection of used bars and extra chains put up in the attic as well.

The "mostly non-McCulloch" section.

I also put up some McCulloch wall hangers that I have had for a while but no good place to display them.

i could spend far too much time looking over all of that stuff... and i love those Mcculloch dealership wall hangers. I just went through all of the troubleshooting steps, lol. I like the one part, "drain fuel and save", probably more than a couple times they had to tell the customer "you ran straight gas dumbass... no warranty repair for you...'
