All carefully listed and dokumented as best I can.

In collection I think there is about 650. It is hard to draw a line to what part of collection it is. Parts I need or saw in collection...

Do most of them run or are some just for spares
I am just a small fish in the pond.

I try to have all complete. Some I just must try and hear others I am afraid to mess up so they sit and look beautiful.

Re: vintage chainsaws

For anyone who is vaguely interested, here are the pics of the 070. Told you it is mint Too good to bolt to the mill really.

The twin engined sthil mill looks like it will work but a little too large for my needs, will probably get a 36" Alaskan instead. Anyone used a twin engined mill? Comments would be appreciated incase I am making a mistake by geting rid of it.

Re: vintage chainsaws

Everything (excluding the other half) has a price on it so open to offers if you feel the need. If this is the wrong forum please remove but I am not offering it for general sale (yet). I did buy it so know what I need for it.

That mill looks a bit cumbersome with another saw head on aswell, compared to an alaskan of the same size, you could still keep the 070 buy a normal bar and use it on the alaskan?
