    Never figured that would make a good parts washer. Dishwasher soap is hard on metal parts, especially aluminum.

    I have a 30 gal solvent tank in the garage. Works well.

    As far as saws, just have a 460 now. Picture one with an 18" bar, nothing out of the ordinary. Did put a Aussie muffler on it and a 8 tooth sprocket. Cuts wood pretty darn good.

    Might end up with a larger saw by the end of this year and keep the 460 for limbing.

    I've had my Homelite ranger 33 since 1999 and have never had a problem with it. For general cleanup and limbing it is the saw I grab. Light, easy starting, and forgiving. Just ignore any comments these Stihl fanatics make... Oh wait, you are a stihl fanatic. (I did take the nose guard off.)

    This one has barely been used. Starts right up but something is wrong with the chain brake. It's not melted but just doesn't release. I can pull the guard back and the chain will spin. But as soon as I let go it locks back up.

    I have three homelites (33cc, 38, and a rare 45cc with 20" bar) that came to me with the same problem. One day I'll fix them.

    I like the creative rack. I've hung saws from the ceiling from the top handle before, but never the rear handle. What are the cons (if any) of doing so? Looks like a good way to store a lot of saws in a little space.

    Wasn't poking fun at your saw KaptJaq - just laughing at a funny comment - hope it didn't come across that way - sorry if it did. I have not problem with any saws that get the job done! Cheers!

    Thanks. By the end of the summer, the only thing about it that will be a 365 is the sticker and SN plate. I think it's going to see Mastermind.

    No offense was taken, just going with the flow. I actually replied to Mikefrommaine's post. Didn't even notice he had a Husky in his signature. Doesn't it get lonely with all those Stilhs?

    Was a city boy transplanted to the woods when I bought the Homelite. First chainsaw I touched and it did the jobs I needed it to without maiming me. I've never been one for overkill so it still comes out on a regular basis.

    I think a trip to Tennessee for the 365 is a great idea......but then again, I'm biased ;)

    I guess you don't do much limbing.

    Jim Beam Black, PBR, Havatampas with Rock and Roll make for a great evening in the shop.

    The old stuff is interesting, many ideas on how to make a chainsaw.
