couldnt decide weather to put this here or in the tool thread. decided that it would be best here. i have been working on rebuilding an old stihl 046 that has been a box of parts for several years

Cutters choice sells jug kits etc pretty cheap, imported but seem to work well on this end anyways

yes it is done and it seems to run pretty good. it has been 15 years since i ran that saw and it was a franken saw so it wasnt the best but it ran pretty good. i have made a couple of cuts in a fir log at the neigbors house. the chains i have for that saw are the wrong size for the bar so it cuts crooked but i think the right size chain and it would be a screamer. im going to build another one and try my hand at porting it. it has been a fun project i have had to make some tools and am pretty happy with the outcome

more to come. there is another basket saw not pictured that still has the cylinder on it and from looking through the intake and exhaust looks good but some rebuilding necessary there is a hole in the bottom of the case in a non criticle area
