    And half the money of the higher end bars in the catalog too. I'm getting some bits and pieces from Bailey's this week. Maybe next week I'll order the bars. I'm ordering a bar adapter so I can run all Stihl bars, even on Husky. Don't know how well it will work.

    IMO the GB bars are just about equal to the Stihl bars, way better than Oregon. I've never owned a Cannon bar or any of the other ultra high end bars, but I don't like paying $85-$95 each for Stihl bars from the local dealer. The last Stihl bar I bought was the 24" on Skwishey's 038 Magnum, it cost me about $80. 24" GB Titaniums are less than $50.

    Have you gotten one recently Brian? I have hear the quality has gone down with Stens buying them out.
    I love the bars as well, not quite a Stihl ES, but damn close!!
    Neat tip Stig, thanks!

    Not very recently, Andy. Remember, I haven't done much work since September. I have a 32" I stuck on the new 395XP but I haven't used it enough to show any wear yet.

    Sorry for derailing your thread, Stig. Cool stump trick there.
    I took the 'urban cowboy', high-dollar route and stuck a bench vise on my bucket truck.

    That's a damn nice setup MB but... are those pole tools in your truck?

    Stig, the guy that taught me basic felling used to do that but I could never make it work. The scrench must be what I left out... but I could never get a stump vise to work either.

    But they're pole tools. Guy would be proud you know.
