I started Milling. I can honestly say that I have learned so much very quickly. My set up is a Alaskan Mill bought from Amazon which I have already modified and will continue to modify. Brand new 390xp with Oregon 37" Power match bar and Oregon Milling chain. View attachment 928140
How many DLs is that 37" bar?

The only pic at the moment but I picked up this little gem, two 028 supers, a 08s, a pioneer holiday 1100 that I gave to my brother in law and a new in box 7 HP power fist snowblower engine for 160 cad. Friday morning. The one pictured runs and so does the 08s.

It just keeps happening! I have come to the conclusion that this must have been a Homelite area back in the day, since these old gems keep appearing out of nowhere while Macs almost never show up for sale.
Great condition C-72 with 25" Oregon roller nose bar in equally good shape. $50. I can't believe this saw, the guy I bought it from said it had been sitting on a shelf in his garage for the past 15 years when it was last ran. He had recently brought it out to try running again, but it wouldn't idle so he just wanted to get rid of it. It was so encased in dust and dirt that it looked brown instead of red.

After cleaning it up, I dumped out the mixed fuel that the guy had put in and replaced it with my own. Then I reset the carb needles to 1 turn out each, and after a couple primes it was like the old diaphragm in the carb came back to life and started working perfectly. Once it idled enough to get warmed up, I realized that there's literally nothing wrong with this saw. Everything works as it should, there's no sign of the crank seals being bad, no leaks, air filter still good, etc...

Of course, that got me motivated to take the cool old roller bar off, clean the rails, check its condition and give it a quick wet sanding to make it look nice and shiny, then put it back on and sharpened the chain.
The way it cuts really surprised me. I thought these saws were supposed to be slow cutters, but to me it cuts plenty fast in this small/medium size birch that I've been working on all summer. Lots of torque.
Anyway, I'm very pleased with this. Plus the C-51 I found at Goodwill has a friend now. :cheers:

Thats AWESOME, really a great find.
They are only a little slower in rpms , the torque makes them cut as fast a free wheeling.

Today I picked up these 3 for $250 not a great deal but still cheaper than the ebay. But they all have spark and popped off when fed a bit of gas. The light colourd one is missing the air box but might be able to find it who know
