    2511t, 490, and Jonsered 2188 due to their good power to weight (especially when modified) and I like their setup. I haven't tried a 572 though, but I've seen a modded one in person, and it is impressive. I don't mind using the 2188 for small stuff as a time saver, I actually prefer it, but it has done well even when burying a 42" square skip with only a muffler mod and oiler mod, oiler probably being the most important to save friction. Actually ch74 has my 2188 now :whine: (tough times). I want another though.

    I was just curious, I like to know the limits. My current count is fine, I was just wondering if 100 trillion would fit.

    Enough of Frankie's & my saws: Scenes from the recent Master Mind Work Saws get together. An interesting event. Some of the saws include a 123cc modified Mc Culloch, 3120, 880, 660 kit saw, 100cc twin Solo (it has lots of torque), Sachs Wankel, Montgomery Ward pipe saw <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/eQAdKr5CEBE" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/RmgPlQLPEPs" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    How high will it go? Will the number wrap or fall of the page, or is there a set number of digits?

    I always wear earplugs, sometimes double, but those pipes do a good job of directing the harshest sounds away (down into the ground in this case). I think I'm a fan of tuned pipes because of how well they redirect the sound away from the operator even though they amplify the sound too. Obviously the 2511t pipe isn't tuned, it's just a horn.

    With the 7t. I'm not happy with the chain right now, but it works well enough. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Dr8fblKb15c" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It did not, but I watched some sci fi movie in a class in high school that had a convincing beginning, and one student asked the teacher in the middle of the movie if it was real. It had something to do with radio telescopes finding an alien transmission and building a transportation device.

    It is well written, and could easily convince people, except the mention of future times can somewhat reduce the realism. The best science fiction is that which is very convincing.

    Thanks. I recently put a 7t rim on it too. Quite an impressive little saw.

    I'm sure they wouldn't make that big of a mistake on size, and probably would be certain it will hit IF it was going to hit. 2029 is supposed to have a "large" and "close" asteroid, which when you think about it, will likely not be visible, and very roughly at the same distance as the moon: maybe 50-400kmi

    Good enough for one cut with the chain pre oiled too. Echos can put out a good bit of oil though. I don't think it would be enough for dry hardwoods like ash and hickory.

    Nutball replied to a thread 201tc in Chainsaws!
    One usually assumes they build things to withstand just about anything you could throw at it, but they tend not to. They should make them to cool the engine well enough to cut at full throttle for a full tank of gas, but who knows if it could survive that without overheating or damage. They probably anticipate a climber using it for wood not much bigger than the bar. And they might assume the owner will keep saw dust cleaned off the cooling fins and starter cover on a somewhat regular basis. And consider the relative "mileage" put on a small saw slowly cutting big wood, that's a lot of use. You go from clearing all the branches of a tree in one tank of gas to cutting only 10 chunks of firewood per tank. I watched some stock truck pulls, and thought what could go wrong with a stock truck pulling with such limited power? But they almost always snap a shaft somewhere in the drive train if the bumper doesn't get ripped off first because they are not meant to run at max power in low gear for very long at all.

    For power, but probably not for life. More power fatigues metal faster. I'd say keep the filter clean and run 40:1 of a high quality oil for a long life, and don't abuse it, don't cut big wood, that's what big saws are for. I might be able to point you towards a 200t rebuilder.

    There's been some foreign object on your camera lens for a while, and it's starting to annoy me. Once I had to actually take apart my little point & shoot camera to clean the sensor window because when trying to blow dust off the lens blew it behind the lenses.

    People keep saying good things about those saws, but I shudder to think I'd put even an ounce of trust in the quality of that stuff when I see it. I guess I'm too meticulous. Most people just think if it runs, it's good, but I keep thinking of all the little details: metal shavings in the bearings and oil pump, loose cylinder plating, low quality plastic and rubber melting and degrading rapidly. Still fun to tinker with. I was about to assemble some fake ms250's when I found the clam shell has a significant gap on all 4 blocks I have. I'll have to grind the bearing and oil seal slots for a better fit. I wouldn't want to crush the bearings and seals like it is.

    It's a nice change. We need more green and yellow saws out there too.

    So, maybe rotating an object in a vacuum might help prevent the flip. A top, being balanced as mentioned in the video, around it's normal axis of rotation will not do the flipping thing by design.
