    Your Uncle's saw will make a nice one for your Dad. It will be nice to take it out once and awhile and think of your Uncle cutting with you, he would like that I'm sure.

    Speaking of only having two saws............... I got the 024AV Electronic running real nice, sweet little "Pro" limbing saw. That "electronic" flywheel did the trick with the 031AV too, it was really screaming again. Now I can fix the other ones too. The 460 piston and cylinder looked fantastic, perfect example of a saw with very minimal internal wear, but beat to heck on the outside. Probably the kind that bounced around in the back of someone's truck most its life. With that new handle/tank, nice used ebay covers, and a can of Stihl Grey-White paint, its gong to run & look nice too.

    Just got back from the Berea Gun Show, total complete mad house up there, biggest crowd I ever saw at one, 2 news stations filming and interviewing (outside) the whole time too.

    Just like my uncle's 046.... he got it used from an logger YEARS ago.I think he traded a gun for it. Looks like crap, even if anyone in the family wanted a saw, they would have seen that and thought it was junk. but she still runs like a champ.I did do a quick compression check on it, and it is still holding 168 lbs...Strong saw that even though got beat up in the wood hauler, was meticlously maintained. I did find a couple extra bars for it. My uncle always ran 20" 404 full chisel on it. said it lasted longer. i've never ran 404 so I will have to try it out. besides I got a couple extra bars and 5-6 loops of chain, as well as an 046 service manual, couple air filters, clutch and rim sprockets as well as a spare clutch too. the 034 had to have been new to him. it had a 25" non replacable nose stihl bar in .325 on it... that is a weird combination. No spare parts with it and no spare chains. I remember once I got my 066 when we cut, uncle steve always wanted an 066 with a 25" on it for the bigger stuff. I guess him and I are alot alike. 20" bars on 70cc saws and 25" on the bigger stuff. He was like this, if the 20" can't take out a 3 foot diameter tree, then I have no business messing with it anyways. The stihl 009 rear handle is in awesome shape. found a ton of chains for it, but no spare parts. There was once a spare 046 magnum that was run over by a skidder and he would never sell me it, as i wanted it for the topend to put on my 440 that i use to have. I did not find that saw, so I don't know if he traded it for the 034 or the 009. I don't remember either of those saws and we cut alot right before his accident, in fact some of the huge 28" ash rounds are still out back in the pile. and well as the red oak we cut over in canton about a month before his accident.

    There were 3 x 009 in that pile of "junk" I got from the lawnmower guy, I sold the most complete one on ebay, actually managed to get it running too! I have 2 more of them I was going to put up on ebay soon, so if you want one for a parts saw let me know ASAP.

    ok, I will. I haven't even looked at it at it was just loading the truck. I pulled the rope and it seems to have decent compression. It's so little with the 12" bar, its kinda cute. lol. Found a new Stihl electric blower in the box too. Told my mom to take that.she lives in the city with a small tree'd lot.
