Happy new year 2022 if possible....I
I let the "first" pass in hopes some one would step up to start a new thread.
381 submissions and 24K views for 2021 down by more than half from 2020. Hoping for better this year
I thought I would get though this covid OK but got omicron the saturday before christmas.
Could a moderator please close down the 2021 thread and sticky this one.
My biggest chainsaw discovery for last year was finding the woodland pro 68RC full chisel 3/8LP at Baileys. Hope you did better.

Thanks, good to know it is a good one, I have plenty of chainsaws (40+), but this is my first bow blade, a little apprehensive to use it, but will at some point. Funny thing is I was in my teens working at the little hardware store when he bought it new. I gave him a good running but well used Stihl 028 Super a few years ago.

Found an hour away from my town. I have all paperwork and manuals for it. Lived in a closet since new.

It’s a saw … and it was free buddy called me this morning said his neighbor was getting ready to move to his home in Florida permanently. I got this bandsaw a 10 inch craftsman shop saw and a 24 inch cut radial arm saw . All craftsman from the early 60s . I have to go back and take apart the shop saw and radial saw . Couldn’t get them out with the two of us . But we were able to get the bandsaw out. 3CB9E152-9F71-474F-BFBD-BFD15F8F82DC.jpeg 85177EAB-41CD-4302-80EB-088EC7C69DE0.jpeg 7FB96106-B559-4F1D-80EE-B59D9D88A972.jpeg 481B5883-A54B-4512-A1D4-C9CBFC22DCD4.jpeg

Early Stihl 051AV, points ignition
Got it for 50€. Fuel line and 4 AV mounts were rotten...otherwise its a runner with huge compression and crazy bright spark. Not sure if the cylinder is original...its not Mahle. Did Stihl also used other cylinders?

i was at the local tip and spotted this sitting next to the staff tea room. obviously i had to check it out.

one of the guys who works there saved it and a 61 hardwood (blacktop) from the metal bin.

the 61 ran so he's keeping it. this he gave me!

made my day. 20220128_162918.jpg 20220128_162932.jpg

prognosis is good for the 288.

the top end has transfer but no actual scoring i can see/feel and the bottom end feels tight and smooth. it will still need to come apart as i managed to drop an amazing amount of grot/wasp nest into the bottem end.

it won't be tackled straight away but has been jumped a fair way up the que.

it also comes with a fully custom muffler mod!

i am not sure what is going on with the clutch, note the 2-3mm gap all round. i am guessing it has been swapped.
