Re:Chainsaw gurus! 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Reminds me of tuning my old RC plane 2 stroke engines. Would have them suckers turning 14 to 16 K when properly tuned. So when we would get the motor broke in and were ready to final tune it, we would hold the plane straight up in the air at WOT and give the fuel line a quick pinch, if it coughed and almost died it was too lean, if it gave a quick rpm burst then started to die it was dialed in real close. A VERY FINE LINE between rich and lean at that point so be careful if you try it, but knowing you and how you like everything being at peak performance, thought I would throw that out at you.

I've been collecting free seasoned oak last week from Craigslist. I've split about 3 full cords this week and only had to drive a couple miles to pick it up. My cousin loaned me his 26 ton vertical splitter and I Didn't have to cut any of it. Going to get some Maple on Sunday. I got a wood insert coming in next week to install in the living room, hopefully it will cut my heat bill down to almost nothing this year.


Sounds like a sweet deal. I bought a used splitter a couple months ago. Built a lean-to for wood storage on the back of the garage too. I've got some oak getting ready for the winter after next in there

What insert did you get?


I got a large hybrid unit with the Catalytic unit in it. It's made by Fireplace Extraordinaire. Pretty impressive unit. Can take 24 inch logs and they claim 10-12 hr load burn time with good oak. so I figure closer to 8-9 hr. it is a 83200 btu and 80% efficiency rating.

I stacked some on a rack and the rest I made a "holz hausen" check out the link

Not to feed the itch too badly but you can send your saw off to a saw builder and really wake that thing up.

Not uncommon for a shop to hot rod a 460 or 461 so that it out cuts a 066 or 660. Mod a 660 and she will really cut. I know a guy in Tennessee that works on saws, and he would be the only one I would send a saw to.

Some shops will even adjust the timing which requires cutting an offset key.

Dual port is a good step.

What kind of chain did you get?

You can certainly tune the saw yourself after a little research. It isnt really a once and done type of deal. Best to learn how so you can make occasional adjustments.
