    Chain recommendations for cleanest cut

    New CSM Build Complete

    Hi All, I promised in another thread a while ago that I'd report back on a CSM re-build project I was undertaking....It's taken a lot longer than I'd hoped (day-job, kids, bushfires, pandemics etc), but I finished it a few weeks ago and so below are a few pics of the build. I had been...

    new husqvarna 365 capable?

    I have a husqvarna 365, bought new this year. I have been milling slabs with it using an oregon 28" bar, trying various brand ripping chains. I have some great timber that is too big for the 28" setup (max cut width ~23"). Will my 365 be able to run a 32" bar and chain (max cut ~26-27") with...

    Echo CS-800p setup for milling?

    Just picked up a CS-800p with a 2o" and 36" bar along with a few chains for $225. Ive got a 36" granberg mill that I've been using my cs-590 with a 27" bar on, but it tends to struggle. I'm still relatively new to this so I thought I'd ask the experts... First... Are there specific bars that...

    First cuts with CS mill

    So I had two giant white oak trees taken down on my property, bases 40-48" diameter. Company wanted too much to haul it off, so I decided to mill it. Built a saw and a mill and went to town. One of the trees was rather dead, and had some really amazing spalting in the sap wood. After drying for...

    Custom waterjet chainsaw bar

    I'm thinking of water jetting an artistic pattern into my chainsaw bar and am wondering if it can be done. I would choose a pattern that would minimize the loss of structural integrity, but I am also wondering if the metal in the center of a bar is solid, laminated or riveted together? Anyone...

    Guess what I bought last week? Hint: Stihl 075

    Well, so much for the 20 questions game... Hi everybody, my name is Rob. I've read over too many pages and somehow not enough and only recently joined AS. My firewood saw is a MS290 but not quite powerful enough for milling, a skill I've been wanting to try for years. Now that I'm grown up and...
