This is my complicated "You suck" addition.
Remember the saying "Hell hath no fury as a woman scorned"
One of the ladies on my route offered me these two saws because her boyfriend was being a jerk. He said he needed a saw so her father gave her his Husky but he wanted a Stihl so she got a nice used one but he complained about it being too small and not a new one. They argued so she said "screw you". She said I can have them but I told her I'd hold on to them for now until it cools down.

don't think I could have done that...
say what you want the local ace hardware here is owned by a large private company called houchens industries that owns every IGA, Priceless IGA, Save-A-Lot in this area plus numerous shell service stations so i did not feel bad about it. I did tell the employees about it but they just shrug their shoulders.

So are you taking the position of a modern day Robin Hood, take from the rich and give to the poor (yourself)?
This is sorta like the post a while back about taking the stacked logs from public land, some find nothing wrong while others oppose on moral grounds.
Personally if you took a package and made out by sticking it to the man ok but wiping them out of all their stock is all together different.
I'm not here to pass judgment but maybe people should think twice before posting things like this so as not to receive the ire of the group. Keep it to yourself and think of it as your own personal victory

My local ace is not privately owned by a individual but a large company here where i live. that company owns IGA, Priceless IGA, and over 40 shell gas stations in Kentucky.
Since you brought it up I'll just add that according to the link you posted the company is private/employee owned so that image of some cigar chewing fat cat really doesn't apply here.

Yup, I suck. Came with original manual from 1973. 20" Windsor bar, chain so sharp I cut myself already and it runs great. Check out the original rubber on the handle. This thing is a time capsule.

One of my co-workers told me he had some saws for me that he couldn't get running...
The Pioneer will need the fuel line in the tank but ran fine with a jumper line dumped in the tank. Skil needed a prime and a whole bunch of choke to pick up from the tank, but runs nice. Mild thing? 6 pulls. The predator was a dozen pulls, falls on its face when the strato butterfly opens, so I'm thinking carb kit.
Needed an oil pump and a few other pieces for a 2137 Jonsered that's on the bench so the wild thing is a parts donor...

Was wandering around at a yard sale and spotted this stihl 038 (magnum?) by a table. Asked if it was for sale, the guy said no and showed me how the motor rocked back and forth. “Apparently it’s not supposed to do this” he told me we got to chatting about some other stuff and he mentioned he was going to have to get rid of the saw. I said would you mind if I tried to fix it? He said “go throw it in your truck” All it needed was a new hole tapped for the left side top av mount, which costed me nothing. Tuned the carb ended up giving it to my dad as a present.
