• Notice to all BUYERS. You are buying at your own risk. If you do not know the seller then please be cautious and look for suspicious activity. If they ask you to mail a check/money order or pay with PayPal using the Friends and Family option, that is a RED FLAG. Your purchase will not be protected. Only pay with credit card or PayPal using the goods and services options. Do not fall for the excuse that they don't want to pay the PayPal fees. They need to account for that in their sales price.
  • To all USERS that think they need to police the site. New users that come to sell items are not always selling stolen merchandise. No vigilante or lynch mob mentality is permitted. You will be given infraction points if you accuse someone of selling stolen merchandise without hard evidence. You must have the stolen item report with a serial number and/or pictures that match the for sale item to make such accusations. Alert the moderators with your evidence and they will take care of any transgressions. If you do not you will be given enough points for a 3 day time out.
  • Please be aware that we have recently gotten a wave of users that, when researched, are found to be from Nigeria. They are trying to sell products and asking to be paid through Zelle or Venmo leaving users with no recourse if they don't ship the product. If you suspect this activity please contact admin and we will research their information to verify their location.

I came across a old 1-42 recently. Saw has been in the weather for some time and the pull rope assembly is seized up tight! The aluminum is corroded up pretty bad.
Suggestions or if someone’s got the parts to fix it. I’m interested. Thanks all.

It looks like it may have been exposed to salt air so I woul look inside of everything for more corrosion before committing too many resources to it. This saw was produced under many 1-numbers as well as 250 with not too many changes, and easily restored or even running examples aren't too hard to find at reasonable prices. If you decide to go ahead, I think I have a starter you can have for the cost of shipping

Thanks Jay. The saw looks like it’ll clean up. And seems to have some compression just turning it over by hand. It’s hard to tell for sure without having the recoil assembly and doing a compression test. I don’t mind spending a few bucks to check it over. I’ll take you up on your offer, and if the compression test tanks, I’ll mail it back to you. I’ll send you a pm thanks.
