She definitely won't be doing it again -keep the good stuff locked up. Loan out the beater saws
I have a similar, but less tragic story. I brought several of my reed valve Homelites to a GTG to cut donuts and let others give it a try.
I run my classic saw slightly rich at WOT as replacement pistons and cylinders are getting to be like Hen's teeth.
I let a 30 something participant give the saw a try, and to my amazement he whips out a screwdriver to adjust the high set because it wasn't generating the RPMs he thought it should.
No damage was done, and I learned a valuable lesson in that moment.
Dont get divorced over it man! Simmer down a bit.Well considering the fact that the saw hasn't got a proper chain brake , and it weights a ton , you're probably right , I could of ended up in big trouble - still that was the only saw I truly cherished with all of my heart , at least I'm alive gents - for now
Rage-texting my wife over the phone , sheesh - its gonna be a looong day -
If I need spare parts , he's 100% paying for 'em , already agreed , and the spare parts for my saw DON'T come cheap
Guitars baby, now we are talking. Strat's Tele's and Le Paul's?She definitely won't be doing it again -
But I mean comon , I had several plastic-crappy saws on the counter , a Blinky BMS40 , a Husqy 120 MarkII , 2 no-name brand chinese saws , and the 070S
What did she take? the 070S dammit , only 'cause it has a longer bar and the man wanted to fell a pine -
Had a talk with her when I got back home obviously, she wasn't aware of how much I cared about that Alpina , I care about that saw just as much as my 60s/70s guitars! She just wasn't aware that our neighbour is "dumber than a box of rocks - belly to boot"
Due to the fact that I've got way too much S#!t on my plate , I haven't got much time to dedicate myself to this saw , so my little neighbour will have to give me fresh cash until I'll be lucky enough to find a guy that's selling an Alpina 070S , I mean , I have a CastorC70S which is practically the same saw , different colour - but I'm picky
