    That looks like an old Clinton. Not sure on the model. If it runs good, it'd probably be worth somewhere around $100 or so...

    guess the $35 asking price is worth it then.

    My rule of thumb is.... If it looks old and I don't know what it is, and price is right, I buy it. Depends on funds also

    Anymore, old junkers like that need to be complete and that one seems to be. Definitely a Clinton, belt drive I think.

    Neat looking old saw for sure.
    Is it for sale, this is the wrong forum for general discussion. It's easy to mix them up, but when you see the heading 4 sale lol.
    @pioneerguy600 Chainsaw forum probably?

    You're asking me.

    It's not overpriced, and even better if you don't have to ship it. I doubt it'll be a real chore to get going. What's to lose.

    That’s worth $35 just as is as a shelf queen. Runner with not much work would be a bonus.

    Be aware the drive belts on them are scarce.

    It looks like a Clinton-built saw. The tubular handle resembles the Bolens-branded version.
    Clinton used a sort of modular assembly process mixing and matching power heads, fuel tanks, induction systems, shroud styles, transmissions, and tubular handles. It should have a name plate on it with a model number, serial number and type number on it.
    It's a nice example and well worth $35.
