Thanks to everyone who helped me pick out a used saw. I appreciate the help, especially since I know next to nothing about 'em. I picked up the well-respected 028 last night ($165) and checked it out and cleaned it up a bit today...I have no interest in cleaning it up too much, I like the old school look and wear n' tear. Gives it character. But, I wanted to get rid of any excess oil/dirt build-up. Here are some before cleaning it up: After cleanup: My wife photoshopped one of 'em for me. Thought it looked pretty cool with the orange isolated. I fired it up and it ran perfectly. It was impressive, much better than my Pop's little Poulan...which is about the only other saw I've run. I didn't have a chance to cut with the 028 yet, as I'm waiting for some safety gear to arrive first. But, I'm sure it'll be fun.
