    In Germany the wages are very good and cost of living quite a bit less than here. Standard is about the same as here. Most I know that lived in US, Germany and Sweden end up here for other reasons than living costs.

    ABB assemble some robots about 20km from my house for automotive industry. They as many others use the china plants mainly for production of parts although some do some assembly and finished products. The product control is expensive were ever you are so its not much gain in it.

    I don't think that is accurate. There is over 200 different systems used n the world. Here we use a system named European Article Number. In US its called UPC, Universal Product Code.

    It can be done, but then cost is eating up the profit. When they do, costs is high enough to make it pointless.

    Even though they are not common I would not say they are rare as they can be found if they were sold in the area. Rare to me is a handful saws, not hundreds or in most cases thousands. In USA there was thousands 1020's sold, as well as in Europe. They pop up now and then in the areas they were sold in.

    There is some 1020's in some areas. As it was export only here is none. Partner Used same engines in cut of saws as in chainsaws. Later in time (after elux) there is some differences. R11 was thought of as the first rescue saw. The Partner cut of saws was superior for many, many years. At the end they are sold under Husqvarna brand and now it is no Partner designed saws left I think. Just Husqvarna designed saws. Brand is now in bottom draw, no more saws made as Partner. Some pop up in box stores but they were built a couple years ago before brand was killed. The saws from Partner was very well built in engine. No rattling, vibrations or noise unless something was broken. When you have a engine like that running it is as close to music you can come with a engine. All you hear is combustion. The 65cc was extremely durable. Have many customers with them around here. As long as there is spark they run. If they had points they would last for ever. The more Elux/HVA got involved they changed to HVA.

    If you are familiar with the saw and experienced enough you can hear difference in the tone when it four-stroke and hit limiter. Most newer saws don't like running rich as they don't perform optimal so best is to set them after performance in wood. If they are lean they get too hot and go kaboom... Reading plug is a good way to see how it ran over a period of time. Fuel has a lot to do with how it reads as well as setting. I try to avoid used plugs as they are fairly cheep and washer is only compressed correct once. I have seen to much problems and costs to do that. As most here use same fuel its a lot easier.

    For fast smooth cutting rakers are set too low to begin with IMO. It's best after 4-5 filings. Most common reason rakers are low is to compensate for sharpness. Second is that the filer lack knowledge of how to set them and why. Filing became passion for me, others see it as a big pain. There is no limit how good it can get. Only the ones You set.

    If files position is a bit low in cutter you don't get correct shape of cutters top and side plate. A larger diameter file will not work long as you will file other stuff not meant to be filed. Just place it a bit higher in cutter.

    In hard wood the filing is best done with a bit less hook in corner for smooth cutting. Hook compensate for a not so good edge as well as the raker setting. Its also a bit more forgiving with angles If you look at tooth from outside in It should be more ( than C. The straighter the better it holds, but harder to get really good sharp edge. Some times the side of the tooth is not very sharp, It can't cut fibre of and binds in the cut. What chain and length is this? 372 pulls 24" full comp chain well even in hard wood.

    Synthetic and semi synthetic oils is nothing new. But knowledge and awareness about oils is higher today. Products are often a bit more sensitive to what you feed them. There has always been different oils for water cooled two-strokes versus air cooled.

    Not all oils age well. Some do, but some need to be used up in a year or so to be sure they perform correctly. It is often the mixed types that is aging in bottle. Sometimes you see and smell it as you open. Sometimes you know it when saw go kaboom. You see it when you pull it down if lubrication was adequate or not... Its not just the oil that you need to think about. It is to be mixed with something as well. If it isn't mixing as intended you run in to trouble..
