• 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.
  • ArboristSite has decided that due to the abusive interactions users are having with each other in the political forum, we will no longer be providing a place to talk politics on this forum. Any political posts will be deleted once discovered or reported to us. We are sorry for this inconvenience.

Haha, I heard an expression once, "man with one watch always knows what time it is, man with two watches is never sure."

I think it turned out to be something like gauge #1 said 165psi, gauge #2 said 143psi and gauge #3 said 138psi. I took it that gauge #1 was most off, and don't use that one anymore.

I wouldn't advocate buying a bunch, unless you hold onto sales receipts and there is a fair return policy. Also, these usually say "accurate to within +-5psi" or something.

Or you could just ask some people to bring their gauges to the next GTG and have a comparison to see if there are any outliers.

But the end point here is that this saw has better compression than your brother's saw, and about equal compression as another 50cc saw that is often described as "high compression", and squish is set at a modest 0.024

You can do video if you use your phone, can't remember exactly but it is an option.
Beyond that, the flack you're getting is bull. There is a thread somewhere that Treemonkey talks about the trapped compression, you can have high psi and still have safe trapped compression ratio. I think it was 2153 deluxe thread. Please think before you bash someone, he's in a rough patch and has to sell his saw, something each of us would not enjoy.

might want to take your guage and someone else that will let you borrow there and see if they are the same. i think it is off 15 - 20 psi but i could be wrong
