    Is that a Made in Sweden saw? Or, is it a Made in Japan? I've got a Japanese made Husky top handle. Runs really well.

    What's the third filler cap for? The one on the front above the bar?

    Its a Swede saw, what you see above the bar is the knob for the air filter cover.

    Cool. Most filters are at the back on the top handle models. How do you like it?

    Got this lot a few weeks ago $160. Most were straight gassed or spark issues . Got a couple done and am building a 029/039 big bore with a pop up piston .

    Then I got these cases free after a sale. Score.

    I scored a Pro Mac 10-10 today. The guy on Craigslist wanted $40 for it but I told him I'd give him $50 if he held it for me since I had to drive to Portland for it. It fired on the 6th pull and ran on the 7th. Revs well, settled to a stable idle.....I'm pleased! 0716181756-00.jpg 0716181757-00.jpg

    I've had a 445 for years, and it's never given me any trouble. Great saw in my opinion!

    About 2 months ago I spotted a Homelite Super 1130G for sale on the Lewiston, ID Craigslist for $150. "Ran last year, can't get to run this year." The owner wouldn't ship the saw, but I just so happens that I have a friend who lives just across the Snake River in Clarkston, WA who was glad to help me out by picking up the saw and paying for it. Just met up with Cameron today, and this is what I bought:
    IMG_0048.JPG

    IMG_0049.JPG
    The compression is 155 psi, runs on prime, has a 48" Winsor .404" bar and a previous owner had a rim drive conversion done to the saw. I was thinking I would need to switch over from the original 1/2" chain and bar to .404", as what 1/2" chain you can will make your piggy bank squeal when go to pay for it. The rim drive conversion was an unexpected bonus.

    I'm a happy Homie man tonight!

    Hope your 2100 Super is in great condition like my saw.
    Be sure to post it here after you pick it up.

    paid $200 shipped for this Homelite 2100s. Fires on prime, has good spark and has 175psi compression. will need a little love and some fuel components but should make for a nice restoration project!!!

    Don't know if this qualifies but a never fueled Shindaiwa 488 for $150 is a good deal. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I think this is a sucky deal

    $150 CAD with 28" Techlite bar and chain that haven't been in wood.. It was advertised as needing a new top end, buddy took delivery of it and said it fired up on the first pull but needs a little more fuel, says it looks like it hasn't done a full day's work yet
    $_59 (1).JPG

    Then some freebies you may have seen from other threads
    Wright.. Seized solid but it will live again!

    Remington/Mall Logmaster GL7.. Needs muffler and air filter, and the clutch is sticky, runs though
    20180702_234310.jpg

    Don't have pics, but have a McCullough 33 and 47, both are going to need serious work I think but they're complete

    It's the first saw I've paid more than $50 for.. it's also the first saw that's actually worth wiping off after using.. all my others are weathered, faded, that is if they have any paint left.. I have a 288XPG as well that I have to put together.. never had heated handles before either, but I try and do my firewood before it's that cold!

    A buddy gave me the 034 super yesterday, been setting for 2 years, I steamed it off put in fresh gas and it fired the 3rd pull. has a vacuum leak , high idle but runs sweet lots of compression
    the ms446 may end up being a cheap saw we will see
