Here’s a new one...something chewed on the air dam of my truck bumper...assuming there must have been something tasty stuck to there. Probably one of the foxes that have been hanging around.

Most likely salt if its used in your parts. More porcupine looking marks to me.

It’s a ‘Woody’!

I’ll get there. Paying off a mountain of student loan debt first. Hoping to move next year into a better paying school district for the following school year so that will for sure help financially. Just waiting for the call and the new job already did reference checks......fingers crossed!

Yesterday I moved some things around so I had more room for the locust(and one stick of cherry).
Added 5 or so loads to it today, lots more to go. I'll need to move the logs to the right of the medium pile to make room for another stack, it might all fit then, might.

Had about a 1/4 tank on this sharpening, nicked the forks :surprised3:.
The good thing is I was off the throttle and it bounced off and only damaged the one cutter.

The others look like this, great chain for dirty locust, at least for a full chisel(semi would hold up much better).

@Czed called the dealer on the stihl chains, I was curious. They are $41 now :oops:, the good thing is it's buy one get one so that's not terrible for a great quality chain.

I really wanted another 6400 saw actually. I like the color on this Makita saw more than the older blue saws. I don't know why I gave it away to be honest, was being too nice I think lol.
I have a few of the 7900/7910's, stock and ported, they are one of my favorites in the 70cc range.
While I prefer the handling of the 6400/7900 series saws, the 6100 is a great saw, and one of the easiest 60cc saws to start.
It always comes back around, it just might now come when or in the way you thought it would :).

Ugh man I would love to get a 7900. Probably too big of a saw for me though. Also just found out they don’t have a bb kit for the 6100 saws. Total bummer lol. Should have maybe held out for a 6400 series

55.00 or so was the last I paid when I bought one and got half off
For 84dl
But they don't always have the sale
They don't have it here now.
I'm not spending that kind of money on chains I can ruin anytime cutting yard tree's
I'll stay with the china stuff.

If you want to get a 6400/7900 series I'm sure you could sell or trade your 6100 for one. There are always guys wanting to trade or buy different saws and the 60cc saws are a great saw for a one saw plan, not that I'm promoting that lol.
