Default Thanks Dad!!

My Dad finally let go of the old chainsaw!





And I'm loving it! He bought it new in '84. I brought it home a few weeks ago and it had old gas in it. Probably hadn't been messed with or started for at least 10 years.(that's when I bought a Poulan.) Get this, it started with that old gas in it! I shut it down and started spending money on it right then.

I know how badly this has been abused. I abused it myself. But, it's still a great saw.



OH! and I got this at a flea market for $5.00!



Sometimes it's good to be the Square Eye,

Thanks Dad!

Tom in KY, saw-saw-saw, I love saws.

Those STHL saws are really great saws. Wouldn't trade mine off for nothing. I also have one of those chain sharpeners, prefer using a file with a guide tho.
