    Here's my peice of junk.
    I only use it 2 or 3 times a year, so I kept telling myself it was good enough.
    This year the oiler stopped working, and manual oiling gets old in a hurry.
    So I'm in the market for another.
    For the amount of sawing I do, I should get a dewalt cordless, but I keep finding better ways to spend $500.
    Why does the rest of the country get first dibbs on half my income?

    And here's the big daddy.
    Trailer mounted, hydraulically driven.
    It was used for years to cut ice blocks for sculptures for a winter festival in our town. The town had a garage sale, and they wanted fourty bucks for it.
    I have no real need for a huge ice cutting chainsaw, but what one of you wouldn't jump all over that?

    Cool stuff blacksmithden. Here's my Stihl MS 261 - a peppy little saw, and a basic sawbuck I made.

    We had a pair of those on the farm. Dad bought them from the local dealer after a long, successful run with a Jonsered 435. The 2035’s were not nearly as reliable and didn’t cut as fast. It eventually drove him to Stihl, though I didn’t realize that the Jonsered saws are mostly slightly modified (different plastic and handle) Husky saws.

    3 more cords of 100% lodgepole pine (wet) for next year. Its so nice being a year ahead and not having to scramble around looking for dry standing dead wood. That said, about 1/3rd of whats in that pile is exactly that. Hey...Ill take dry stuff if I come across it.

    Attachment 18922

    Everything is set up on chep pallets and top covered. I put wood screws with 1/4" fender washers on them right through the tarp to hold down the sides. Then I throw a few split pieces on top to keep things from flapping if we get high winds.

    The polls on the end are more 1" black iron plumbing pipe. I cut them about 7 ft long and drive them about 3 ft into the ground. The nice thing about using them is that you can reuse them over and over again. I used to use 2x4s sharpened on one end but they tend to break off after theyve been in the ground for a year....2 years use out of them at the most. That pipe just requires a few seconds of wiggling and it comes right out so theyre easy to move. Its also easier driving them into the ground with an 8 lb sledge while standing on a 5 gallon bucket.

    I just wish I had room to store more. Sadly, I just cant seem to convince Mrs BSD to move to an acerage.
    Safety first.... lol

    I'm still running my DOLMAR chainsaw, which I guess predates the 1991 purchase of them by Makita.
    Even older stuff is labeled Sachs-Dolmar which I guess speaks of it's origins

    I did have it cleaned and tuned once....

    I also use an old Sachs-Dolmar power saw from the early 1980's, don't remember the model number as the stickers fell off decades ago. I think the engine displacement is around 65cc's.

    Been a very reliable saw all I have ever had to do over the years is replace spark plugs, fuel lines and lots of chains. My only complaint is it is heavy compared to modern saws and my old arms are starting to feel the weight after a while. The old girl has kept my family in firewood thirty some years.
