    That's about as good as these people that have one tree taken down and then try to sell the log for $1000. Because they just know that wood is so incredibly valuable

    Electric Chain Saw (blood-free) - $39 (Bend/Tumalo)

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Although it is a Remington, shaving with it is not recommended. It would, however, make a very realistic prop in a corded version of your own Chainsaw Massacre flick! Maybe "Texas Chainsaw Massacre VI" or perhaps "Chainsaw Massacre, Plugged!"

    If not for your movie, it actually does cut stuff, such as small to mid-sized limbs (trees or human), albeit in a somewhat innocuous fashion compared with, say, a gas-powered version. It does generate, as the side cover adverts, "3.25 Peak Horsepower," the "Peak" probably arriving when applied to jello.

    Relationship saver/helper! The saw was (notice: "was" is "saw" spelled backwards!) a former girlfriend's. The saw saw to it that any disputes (fidelity, etc.) were very quickly resolved. She married an airline pilot and, in their ensuing travels, could not get it through homeland security, even with the hubby's nod. She handed me the saw, not running at the time, as a token of a great, safe friendship. (I had met an actress.)

    Although it makes for a fittingly regal presentation of said saw here in the ad, the table shown in the photo also is for sale at the matching price of just $39!!

    Up for sale is a nice used Craftsman 42cc chainsaw with a 18" bar, chain and carrying case. The saw starts and runs great. Great quality as expected from Craftsman.

    Free Swarm of Bees (East Pittsburgh)

    -
    A swarm of some sort of bee has created a nest around the roof of my home. I'm not sure what kind they are... and I'm not going to get close enough to find out. I don't know what to do with them, but a friend told me that a beekeeper (or anyone) might want them. They were free for me, so they are free for you! So, if you'd like a swarm of bees, you've come to the right post! If you're not interested in the bees, but you'd like to offer some advice, feel free to share.

    Please contact me via email or by phone at 412-two-two-nine-72-four-2. I'll take this post down once they have been captured or migrated to a different location.

    All you need to do is cut the tree down and take the stump with you.

    And the hits just keep coming:

    Firewood Rotted Pine (Auburn)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Probably 1/2 cord of Rotted Pine. Free for the taking. Have to take it all.
    Must respond with a phone #. Too many flakes.

    Notice the stacks in the background. He's keeping the good stuff, you can have the garbage for free.;)

    If someone actually responds with anything less then a "screw you" I'll tattoo this add on my face. Do you think anyone read this and didn't laugh? almost want to see someone do it and leave the stumps but refuse to pay the $75.

    Yes, you do all the work, take all the risks, and then you pay them to remove their trees!

    As my grandmother used to say, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

    At least the 1/2000th of a cord of free 3 year seasoned cherry firewood that I posted is free for the taking. And its still there. #8 and #9 callers were flakes and did not show up to get it. Go figure...
