    Well, just came back from a 5 hour round-trip to see the saws. You all would have laughed your arse's off - a complete pile if beat up JUNK! I wouldn't have paid more than $10 buck for 18 of the 20 saws - one MS170 in reasonable shape and a Husky 51 in reasonable shape - offered $100 for those and no deal. So......left empty handed, but glad I'm not the one stuck with those saws!! Luckily, I have a good buddy that I haven't seen for while who lives pretty close to where I drove - had a nice dinner with his family - so....a good day nonetheless! I'm about out of tinkering saws at this point - withdrawal kicking in - need a good CL deal soon!! Cheers!

    At least you had your head screwed on straight enough to walk away. That is hard for a lot of us to do. Especially once we talk ourselves into a "good deal."

    Agreed - almost glad they were in such bad shape - wasn't even tempted! Cheers!

    Booooo. Kinda glad, though,I don't have any extra money to be spending on saws, and there were a few I wanted if they were to be had.

    Good call though.
    Gotta have fun ones to work on, not a basket full of basket cases. :)

    Guy probably thinks he has saws with value. (or he had a sucker)
    Didn't know you were a saw guru! :)

    Either way, you made a good day out of it.

    Good deals will show up soon. Folks starting spring cleaning, CL will be busy.
  6. I'm here for you. Just call, I'll let this box of uh, saws go for 450 :)

    Mike - that box looks mint compared to what I saw - Hittin - yes, he had the 266/268/272 (one 268 was only a partial powerhead) in the lot - no compression, all plastics trashed, etc., broken recoils, on and on and on. He had was he said he had, just a nasty lot. Cheers!
