    There certainly are more experienced people than me who would likely offer a wiser reply, but I would guess that the saw might well have simply quickly froze up with no damage to the crank bearings or anything else besides the p and c. After thoroughly blowing out and cleaning the crankcase and parts within, check the crank movement. If it seems good, why not go for it with a new p and c. When you do install the new piston on the crank, be mindful of the circlips position that holds the piston on the crank pin. The curly q should either be in the up or down position in it's seat, not sideways, or it's said that the clip can fly out. I had a clip either break or fly out once on a real cool modified saw that I had put a lot of work into and was getting real good use from, rendering both the piston and cylinder damaged to uselessness. Bring that saw back to life!

    I remember reading an article about a guy that hooked a giant tuna while in his small inflatable. Multi hundred pound fish I believe it was. I can't recall exactly, but I think something like three hours or maybe longer to finally succeed in bringing the fish up to his raft. I imagine it was quite a feat to accomplish.

    The mud has been horrible, hard to tell they are white most the time. Sam was short for Samson. Thanks Stig. I hope some day to get a video of Sam and the kids on the trampoline. It can be quite entertaining :D

    An old movie, but I love this scene, where Jimmy decides he's going to whack Morrie. That wry smile and little head shake, what an evil man. De Niro rips it. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tOWaHTlq-hI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It looked like a white meat type, reminded me of one that is light colored and flaky that we have here. I imagine good in a stew as well.

    I hope you are dry inside and working on that shop. Crazy weather bro. Should be flooded streets all over LA. Probably mud slides too. We'll probably see more levees break and dam crisis here today. Be careful out there.

    Why yes Sam... That top went KABLEWY all over the burn pile :D <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E52E0SAPyZM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Well, today, we start another week of high winds and rain... Storm supposed to be as bad as last month. :P:|: Gets old. Woke up first this morning, after going to sleep grateful I got to climb and prune live trees for 2 days, to a call from a competitor. Seems I needed a heads up that OSHA is crawling all over us now and they got tagged. Their guy got caught starting a saw wrong, and then they started checking everything. I think I posted semi recent we had a guy killed up here pulling a top. SO now we have 8 inspectors listening for chainsaws and seeking them out. Ohhh goody.... So I have a week to make sure all our paper is in order, double check and triple check all our safety procedure and gear. Guess we need to keep to those 15 minute safety meetings and document. Yada Yada Yada. My friendly competition might very well end up subbing to one of the big companies (or getting leased by them) to keep in business. I guess they hit them pretty hard in fines. Ahhhhhh the life :|:

    Low and slow. Test... But easily adjusted once in the tree as well in case. It has two adjustment points. So you really need to dial it in just like a hitch for the rope you are using. Is it sliding when you weight it? Tighten the cam (s). Is it binding too hard? Loosen a cam or cams. Low and slow. Then try some short ascents. Up, down... Up ... down... How did it feel? You are already familiar with how your hitch cord works on your rope... This is just a mechanical hitch.. You want it to grab when weighted and tend nicely when advancing. Like anything, you don't just pull it out of the box and go work climb on it. Common sense.

    Deva, carb thing is a minor repair too basically, if it is the diaphragms that need replacement. You just have to take the carb out of the saw, which gives a good chance to clean the carb too. If you do it once you pretty much have it down, as all carbs are basically the same. Pulling off the carb on some saws can sometimes rattle your brain a bit, but it isn't rocket science. Give it a shot.

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread Woodworking in The Rec Room
    Bob, what kind of glue are you using? Normally with woodworking glue, if you clean off the excess with water, then after everything dries, sand off the raised up grain and whatnot, there will be no stain when a finish is applied after. With an epoxy, pretty much the same, but although you can clean up with hot water (hot water also works better than cold water with white or yellow woodworking glue to remove excess), isopropyl alcohol or acetone works better to remove excess epoxy. There should be no stain to interfere with the finish if you remove excess well. You can finish things first before glue up, but a finish shouldn't be where you will apply glue to join or it can minimize the strength. It seems to me that cleaning off glue over a finish or stain already applied is more likely to cause problems. Not really advisable. If you do want to go that route, after removing the excess glue and it dries, lightly sand after. You may need an additional finish application if the linseed oil or whatever turns whitish or the water or sanding has messed it up in some other way. Fine steel wool made for woodworking (#0000) is good to use to blend and buff out a finish and remove irregularities. Good to use before a finish too, as it buffs up and smooths the wood very nicely. I usually use sandpaper to 380 or 4 something, then steel wool. Wool works magnifico on end grain.

    No doubt the gent there is smart about keeping armament, but is there some risk in keeping all those things laying about that go bang....old and whatnot? My uncle kept his footlocker up in the rafters of our garage in California, gear from his time in the service during WW2. When a kid I'd check it out when nobody was home, all kinds of cool stuff in there. He had his side arm 45 in there and an Italian pistol that he brought back. He also had clips and ammo. The stuff was pretty green moldy looked and smelled. I tried to fire the Italian gun once, but it wouldn't. I was skeered to try the 45, the stubby fat bullets looked powerful and the gun was heavy, I thought with the gun and ammo so old in that state, something could go awry. I called a gun shop to see if the'd look at the Italian pistol so it could fire, it was a cool looking gun. When the guy asked me how old I was and I told him twelve, he said that I better not be touching that gun, then he hung up. :guns: Eventually my uncle turned it into the cops.
