Honestly, with all that plastic on these newer saws Bigg Redd, I highly doubt it.

075-42 and 090-48 660-36. Now start a milling school and get free labor! Better yet charge them!
Might as well offer a course in sharpening too. That's a lot of cutters to maintain. I don't envy that...
It takes all aspects to make a good csm'er.......With Zaps set-up its pretty easy to knock out 1500 drive links in under 2 hrs. (With the right person)
The best thing is the money you save sharpening your own chains, especially when I started milling. At the rate I'm going the grinder will be paid for by the start of next summer if not before.
Just hooked up the old plow to the old green truck, worked like a charm after sitting for three years(changed the fluid) so the Stihl 090 is in the bag.
Nice job Zap.... Im sure you had some good times in that Green Chevy. But that 090 will provide many good times to come..
Waiting on Pics! !!
Dex, I just found the tripod for taking movies with the camera while milling, maybe this weekend. I have a nice topped off Hemlock that will come down for milling.
Double "Like" this one!!
If the Hemlock is good enough we will be milling it for the coffee table. Ordering this book tomorrow so I have some tips on building this for my wife.
You'd be amazed in what you can build with just a drawknife,spokeshave,10pt crosscut saw, brace/set of auger bits,cabinet scraper & block plane/smooth plane/jointer plane.
One of my first projects when I get started is to build a shaving horse.
Oh man, Thats a little fancy for me.....lol I did pick up a free joiner this year. Mini mill sure comes in handy if you need to break down a big slap. I would add fosner bits and plug makers and your set.
