    You guys climbing with those 16lb plus saws. My hats off to you. :thumbup: Little info on the 385 and then 390 so you know what to watch for. ;) I noticed folks having 390 crank issues. Husqvarna dealer from GA says Between the 385 and 390 I would pick the 385 all day every day. The timing numbers and port shapes were almost perfect from the factory because it was designed from day one to be what it was. The 390 was more of an afterthought "We have to get in the 90cc class to compete with the MS 660" so it is essentially a factory big bore and they had to compromise on the port shapes to make room for the larger piston. Also, while 1mm does not sound like much, the 390 piston is MUCH HEAVIER than the 385 piston. As a result the 390 is known for killing cranks, in as little as one year in commercial duty even with decent care and good oil.

    I expect there will be pictures, Shawn. You don't do too shabby on your camping and hiking outings either, my friend.

    Outer layer, chrome hard finish, inner layer, softer steel. Check it out: when filing, see that layer that peels off? That layer is what is hard enough to cut wood.

    You’re going to have to explain the chrome finish/malleable steel thing in more detail please.

    Chisel cut, round ground, two different types of chain, two seperate types of users. Fellers cut high, with clean trees (no fences, crap grown into them or years of nailing lights, or whatever onto the trunks. Urban tree guys get all that crap on a daily basis. Round ground is more forgiving. The other day i watched a feller friend cutting and felt terrible. His saw cut twice as fast as ours. But hit a fence wire or something and his chisel cut saw is down.

    I am sure everone knows this, but in the first few minutes of the vid i got dizzy from the vid dancing around so shut it off. What i did not see in the first few seconds of the vid was a talk about the composition of a saw chain: they are made with a super hard chrome finish, but the body is mallable steel. That makes it easy to file. To sharpen a saw chain, first look for the worst tooth, then file everything else to match (in an ideal world). Sharpening does not really only mean a perfect curve or angle. First you must remove enough material to remove the scored chrome layer. If you get a perfect angle but the chrome layer is still scored behind your filing, then you will not have a good cutting chain.

    Finally got the recall for the cutting. So I could test the 385 and 505 out. Tree I started on 32" didnt reach across last 2 cuts. Pretty wood. Was told ash but I dont know about that. 2nd tree was ash. I worked on 1st tree and after I finished mine up. Went and finished the other tree for the other guy that was cutting with 272 036. He said you cut little faster then I am used too. He was still on the small end. :P 385 stock impressed me with 32" full skip. 505 had 28" full comp and it to impressed me being on its first tanks since topend rebuild. I came to the conclusion I will be able to sell the 385 in the future soon. 505 does all I need done.

    I think people might offer me money just to shut my yap for a few minutes. It's kinda like the old protection rackets the mob engaged in. Pay me money to prevent a migraine headache, sort of thing.

    My cousin has 2 tickets for the 2018 SUPER BOWL, both box seats. He paid $2,500 for each ticket, but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at the Temple of God church, in Aurora, IL at 3pm. Her name is Judy McNeal. She is 5'5", about 120 lbs., she's a good cook too...She'll be the one in the white dress. smile emoticon:-)

    Here's some videos that are cool. First one is an navy training video on cargo handling from ww2, shows all the components and them loading and unloading stuff. https://youtu.be/0PJ4zTvNwwQ This one shows some old school steel erection, using guy derricks. Lots of riding the ball, climbing columns, and stuff that would give osha a fit nowadays. https://youtu.be/miU8lxASYfg

    It seems that wiping the file would just cram the crap into the file. Isn't tapping it against something more efficient?
