    It sounds a lot and looks like a lot, but it really isn't. In the collectors world I am no big fish. There are those with really large collections.
    I spend way to much time on chainsaws, that's for sure.

    But with collecting and having a saw shop it generates a lot of experience fast. I get to see a lot of saws with in a model. Not just old, although I do enjoy that more.

    I have seen stuff on saws I thought was impossible. Saws with electronic ignition run backwards, run without carb, run without piston ring..
    Odd stuff...

    Thats what happens when you find something fun. It sort of grows by itself.

    I ran my original 088 today. Turn to run, pulled the cord a number of times and then start as usual. Choke, it burps, set to hi idle, start up.
    No kick back. What was going on before when it would pull the start handle out of my hand?

    Jonsered XF was known to break lower arms when they kicked. So users got informed to use two fingers, one each side of rope and when it kicks handle is pulled out of hand. Four fingers and thumb in a tight grip held hard will not let the handle thru and arm snap like a twig.
