    Yea, that secret cut was pretty cool, it allowed him to pull out his pinched saw while pulling the tree off the stump. He just needed to pull the saw out with a long rope.

    It looked like he got any desire to cut down any more trees ever scared right out of him. But, with family and camera crew and the world watching he sucked it up pretty quick.

    Did you have a burn permit, or does somebody have to pay for calling the fire department on a false alarm? I know people have to pay when a false building alarm calls them over, and they are not called off before getting there.

    Nutball replied to a thread Cold showers in Odds and Ends
    So how cold is a cold shower? 60? 50? 35? I've found in the summer I sometimes enjoy turning the temp down gradually until it is coldest, but then it doesn't seem all that cold. I don't think I've done it in the winter. I may have tried once, but can't remember. I've also found the easiest way to just jump right in is to think how much it will suck. Have the cold water going, think several times of just jumping in, sample the water a few times, flick some of it onto your sides. By then you will have imagined it being a lot worse than it will be, and it won't surprise you. Jumping in without thinking about it could come as an unbearable shock.

    I heard Asparagus is beneficial against cancer. As for broccoli, it's supposed to be better raw, just not as tasty and easy to eat.

    Sometimes you can find a decent set of speakers at a Goodwill, especially on one of their big discount days if those items happen to be marked with the right price tag color.

    That many watts might just be for peak beat transients, but maybe not. 200W continuous music is pretty good. I've found there can be many standards as to what the max power really means, including if the rating is true or not. I have a corner computer desk against a wall with plenty of dividers and compartments. Even a little 20W sub really gets amplified by the desk and wall corner if placed in a good spot under the desk. Here's one I built, and I'm eventually going to add 2 more 15" speakers to it. First time I fired it up in the garage, I couldn't hear much, it just felt like an earthquake.

    I almost added it to my video: what I do if I can't find an odd link as a starting point (which half the time I just miss it) I pick any drive link and file flat across the top of it, maybe even on both sides of a tooth. Just file a significant mark on a tie strap, and that shiny spot is your start/finish line. Reshine it if needed each time you go to sharpen.

    Notice the angle of the file I use in relation to every tooth. That's because this way the grooves on the file hit at an angle and cut the metal smoothly like a milling bit. The other way would make the file teeth hit straight on, and it doesn't cut very well or smoothly. The last one seemed hard. You may run into a hard tooth every once in a while. The file just doesn't want to dig into the metal, and can actually be damaged by the hard tooth. Luckily this depth gauge wasn't too hard, but it did mark up my file. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/hwmCoAJvWyM" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    You will get the hang of the depth gauges. I don't like the guide tool thing. For you, I wouldn't worry about the depth gauges except for every 3-5 filings, or 1 filing if the teeth got tore up by rocks. Otherwise you just get a feel for when you have to lean harder to get it to cut, and if it still doesn't cut much faster or slow the engine as much as it used to, then you know to give it a stroke or two with the file. I prefer to pull the depth gauge file across from the inside of the tooth to the outside with light pressure. One hand pulling, and one hand just simply keeping the flat file steady. I'm still finding different ways I prefer to round file the teeth. I like using an angle guide, but I don't like the newer ones because I can't see the cutting edge of the tooth against the file to keep track of the angle as easily as I used to on older guides, so now I've just been freehanding it as of a few weeks ago. You can really about use up one file filing a very dull (not torn up by rocks dull) non skip 36" chain. It depends on brand some too. I'd say I'll get about 3 good sharpenings out of a file on a 36" SKIP chain.

    Good point on safety, I didn't know that about the pants. Kickback energy can be higher too with faster chain speed. The 8t in the link is a direct replacement for the stock 7t that comes on those, and will fit both the bigger Stihls and Husqvarnas. It will allow you to get more tensioning room out of your chain too as I find a lot of new long chains tend to start off the tensioner already half way out. It will cut faster especially in small wood (good for when you get really familiar with running the 660 and want more out of it), and it compensates a loss of cutting speed by using skip chain.

    It's legit, maybe not Stihl authorized, but it is just as durable as any Stihl chain. Great stuff, all I ever use for the most part. Actually the first Stihl chain I ever got was with a chinese Husqvarna 365 straight out of china. It stayed sharp through about 10 hickories while a Husqvarna chain lasted only 10 cuts. The sprockets are just 8 tooth plain Oregon rims instead of 7 tooth. That's the best deal on them I know.

    And no gearbox or shaft joints to break. Root flares will be harder to cut since you are making a rip cut. I like using these on a 660: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Oregon-Rims-22273-3-8-8-Tooth-std-3-8-8-Chainsaw-Sprockets-Stihl-Husqvarna/112835103448 https://www.ebay.com/itm/STIHL-3-8-chain-36-inch-bar-114-drivers-050-gauge-full-chisel-full-skip-RSLFK/360436510859?epid=1654711948&hash=item53ebb0b08b:g:cPAAAMXQ3kRQ9E5X:sc:USPSFirstClass!37122!US!-1:rk:1:pf:0

    Has anybody tried peach wood for smoking? I saved a couple chunks from a job a month ago. I currently don't have a smoker though, the old one is a pile of rust dust now. It was a Nutball smoker for sure. Held steady temp though, I could run it anywhere from 110 to 400F

    Really? Interesting. I figured 1/4 would hold up. The teeth are so small you might just get away with no depth gauges. I know Once I use up all my .050 stuff, which could be a while, for my 2188, I'll switch to .063 because the power stretches .050 chain way too easily. Loggerchain.com has the 1/4 B/C combo in 12" I think, BUT they don't have the 1/4 sprocket, just the 3/8. Kinda weird that the 1/4 2511t is only on the international Echo website.

    Interesting thing you mention a turbo button on an electric saw. I've always wondered about how they setup electrics since they have an ability to output short term peaks of power OR long term lesser amounts according to the temperature of the power system.

    We had a 150 come with the oiler not working, the next one had a loose bar stud, but I put thread lock in it. Might not be much of a warranty issue, but it's a pain to remove the bar & chain when the stud backs out with the bar still clamped tightly on it. Makita is 5.5lbs and 1HP Not available in the USA Echo 2511t is 5.25lbs and 1.5hp MS150 is like 5.6lbs and 1.35hp
