Looks like that'll get pretty close to the top of the cup. I'll have to look at my Campy cups and see where the 32oz mark is.

I would really like to give the Milwaukee a try at some point, just to compare it to the Makita.

Run Stihl BioPlus bar oil in it and you have an environmentally friendly chainsaw.

Recommend getting a spare chain for it too as I believe, like the Makita, it is a narrow gauge, which is not commonly sold yet, so I buy Oregon's from Ebay for around $11.00 each. I tried swapping bar and chain, pulling a wider semi-chisel chain on mine, and it didn't cut as fast, and cut out.


Edit: I have to walk that back. Home Depot does stock the chains.

Ebay still wins for pricing though.

I wanted a 14" bar as it is my preference for cutting most stuff. 12" when working in a tree if possible with a top handle saw. Then bigger as needed.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


I got a phone call from Darcey this afternoon. (aka my crack dealer).

After I got off the phone, I went to the garage where my wife was talking with the GC. I shouted, it's Darcey's fault, it's Darcey's fault.


She says, "you bought a damn straighline saw, didn't you?"

Me, "Not yet"

Wasn't because we didn't try, bidding just went out of budget. Till next time.

$278 for the Pair?!!!

Congrats to you, but now I'm upset at how much I had to pay for the pair I bought last month!

I love my Stihl one. Great for reaching in and clearing big brush as well.

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Tried one of those Milwaukee tape measures after my Stanley wrecked. They've been making them for a few years now and they're still junk. It lasted one month. The head got bent (somehow) and today when I retracted it the first 7 inches broke off. Back to Stanley...

Re: TBA Meeting (Tool Buyers Anonymous)


Finally added a track saw to the trailer. I tried going to the usual tool place I shop at and after 45 minutes there dealing with three different people there who all kept getting side tracked with other customers and phone calls I found out they didnt have the saw that showed in their inventory or the connector rails. No problem with them not having it but the customer service was so lousy I went to another place. Took about 5 minutes and they got the saw with 55" track, connector rails, accessory kit and an additional 55" track brought in from another store the next day. Awesome, found my new tool store... well the additional track didnt make I was really hoping to break down some ply on Monday with it... hopefully have the other track soon.

LS1019 on Bosch gravity rise is a couple months old but worth posting because it's a killer setup. Replaced my 13 year old makita slider that was falling apart. Itll be my framing miter saw now.
