in addition, I got these two PM (270 and 360) saws, and a Remington PL-7A. I'm excited for the PM 270, I've wanted one for a while. Problem is that I have 3 other saws already torn apart on my bench needing to be rebuilt, so these will have to wait.

That's this month/next month's chainsaw money spent.

I don't know if this is a You Suck or if my deal just sucks but I picked up these TS400 and TS410 parts for $65. I was able to piece one together in a a madmax sort of way and get it to run for a few seconds bit lost interest and went in for the night.

I picked up a couple of carcasses 3 weeks ago that i'm going to attempt to rebuild. That one is very clean. Let me know if you need anything.

Scored these this morning from a retiring firewood seller, 2 x 395xp part saws, 385xp, Jonsereds 621 and Mac 15 all for $80aud.
Seller also had a 288xp and 3120xp which he wants to offload, I've made an offer on them and I'll give him a few days to think about it.

A follow up from my original post, today I recontacted the firewood seller whom I bought the earlier parts and saws from.
Scored a 288xp and 3120xp from $550aud, very happy as I've always wanted a 288xp.

20200218_185138.jpg Sell 20200218_185119.jpg 20200218_185048.jpg , had an OK day. I paid a little more for everything that I got than I wanted to, but I didn't go crazy. A couple days ago the mechanic at the Echo dealer I use grabbed me and said one of the guys in the plumbing section had an old Echo 280E he wanted to get rid of. I had never heard of, or seen one. He brought it out and it was so cute, I just had to have it. The E means it's electronic, so I told him if it didn't have spark I'd only go $10 bucks as a wall hanger. He told me to come back today when Barry was in. Turns out it has good spark. Barry said he bought it at a yard sale and it was real cruddy, and the guy said it did not run. He took it hiome, cleaned it up, put fuel in it, and it started and ran well. I gave him $20 for it.

Then went straight from the Echo dealer to my honey hole auction. They had a tool box crammed full of junk. On top was a little Norlund hatchet and a cheap True temper hatchet. There's a guy that comes to the sale every week, and he outbids me on every ax I want. He dumped every thing out of the tool box and put the hatchets on the bottom, hoping no one would see them. Didn't work. Some one else asked the auctioneer to sell them separate. I was ticked becasue I knew he wanted them, and he would drive them up. I wound up going $35 for the pair. Then there was a W Bingham Co, Clevland Ohio ax with the original marked handle still in it. Same guy started bidding and I ran him out at $40. I usually don't give over $10 bucks for an ax, but I had to let him know he can't chase me out real easy all the time. Anyway, the W Bingham Co closed in 1061 so the ax is at least that old.
