    I have watched several of his YouTube videos and he always says his saws are for display purposes only and not for any type of wood cutting. Why is that? Is there some left coast law about using a ported saw?

    Just a guess that the air pollution laws of California prohibit modification of regulated equipment. Someone from there will know. Ron

    Could be related emissions regulations. Another possibility would be insurance. I don't know what the guys who port saws commerically carry as far as liability policies, but I imagine that if I called up my agent and said I wanted to start souping up an already dangerous tool and putting back in service in exchange for money, he might have some concerns.
