    We are many collectors. I don't have a big collection in comparison to all of us collecting.
    Just here in my country there is those with double my size.

    But I am pretty alone in collecting chainsaw collectors.
    We are a pretty merry bunch.

    We try to end each show with all saws running at once. Hopefully we get that done this years meetkng as well. 50-60 saws we had idling at one time.
    More than 10-15 per guy is hard as you want to rev them up every now and then.

    Magnus, I may be mistaken, but wasn't there some talk about you having a proper place to permanently exhibit saws?

    Is this not a reasonable place to park?

    Yes. I had it going two years now. I got about 200 saws there and a couple from other collectors.

    We try to get a bigger place were we can show of more from many collectors making a sort of super exibit of saws.
    Not a easy thing to do..

    I am up in museum now and then and its a hole lot more fun to sit there and look at the saws than packed in shelfs here.
    There is perhaps in avrege 10 visitors/month.
    First sunday afternoon in month I open, other than that they just call and I go up and show it.
    76 visitors at once is record. They lined up and walked slowley thru it as ducks crossing a road.
    Those a bit more interested took two turns, there was about 25 that stuck around and had questions, talked for a bit.

    Its four rooms. This is the big room.
