    I guess if a guy wanted dead nuts on larger trees that aren’t round you could (after making the face cut of course) tie a string round the tree at the desired height (or use string/ bungee cord to accommodate different diameters) and spray-paint the string - remove string and you should have a nice template that’s right on the money ! Quick set-up and accuracy !

    Move .5 cord 32feet for $120 ? In NY we use face cord which is 4x8 by 16-18 ... 3 face wood equal a full cord so if I have to move .5 cord or 1.5face cord 32 and STACK IT $120 is MORE than Fair ... 9-10 full wheelbarrow loads wood do the trick if my math is correct ... 2hr job if you move ... 4+hr drinking cold ones lol !

    Dangerous ! I’ll stick to me firewood cutting and modding saws with the occasional drop (mostly straight up like a popsicle ash)with a rope pull ; wedges and directional felling ... Sometimes a fella has to realize his limitations and call in a pro , I’ve done it several times - not worth to get hurt / maimed /killed

    Frankie replied to a thread Saw video thread in Chainsaws!
    I use full house chain whether 3/8 or 3/8 picco ; 12”-36” bar(s) ... never really messed with skip much for the wood that I cut around here ... no doubt you get more cutters with the .325 than the 3/8 or .375 ... STIHL .325 .063 chain is offered on up to the 291 - the 3/8 .050 takes over from there from the 362c up to the 880 with a .404 .063 option for the 661 and 880 ... your mileage may vary lol

    Frankie replied to a thread Saw video thread in Chainsaws!
    Looks like a 660 clone-saw ... Just curious here ... why .325 instead of 3/8 ? The 3/8 is a bigger beefier chassis that can take the hp and torque of a larger Saw (660) without breaking and more importantly stretching ... I’ve found that the 3/8 picco (ps63) works great on 50cc < 5hp saws and 3/8 RS for 60cc and up ... guys have tried the 3/8 picco on larger saws and have had em stretch and in some cases snap ! Here’s a 500i running ps63 and man does it cut ! ....https://youtu.be/rDy3weCJ6vk .... for s and giggles yes ! As a daily driver no sir ... that tiny chassis WILL stretch for sure and won’t stay on the Saw with a 7 pin let alone a 9 pin

    Frankie replied to a thread Saw video thread in Chainsaws!
    I have a ported 064 with a velocity stack and oiled k/n filter ... AV is inferior to say a 462c - but not really THAT bad - Ive run old McCullochs and thought my choppers were gonna vibrate out of my jaw ! The stack and oiled filter on that saw can cut a LOT of wood before servicing becomes necessary ... I know that my stock 660 with stock filter clogged up and needed servicing every few tanks so I agree with you ... when I switched to the max-flow oiled - foam system on that saw the run time before cleaning increased 10fold over the stock setup or better ... The 064 is the dark horse of them all imho ... 85cc but can accept up to 99cc iirc ...

    Cool beans ... the 044, 046 , 064 and 066 were arguably the best saws STIHL made ... port/timing and flow were maximized for powa without the draconian limits imposed by the epa on the newest models (although these can be made to rip also ) Are you refering to Myrtle Creek (Rich D.) saw shop ? I know he builds/ports some sweet runners!

    $600 is middle of the road iirc ... NO intellectual property involved with port work as it cannot be patented ! I guess if a guy feels he has “elite” port-work then maybe he shouldn’t SELL it and just keep it to himself eh ? Lol

    Yah , ol Jack can build a Saw for sure , but you gonna PAY ! I build my own and if he’s the standard then I’m well pleased with how my saws performo ... I left a lot on the table with the hotwoods saws I built - the “wick” can be turned up if needed ... as far as “porting secrets” and “intellectual property” etc goes ; well I gave up on that nonsense years ago !
