Chainsaw Maintenance Website

Hi all,

I hope that this doesn't contravene any forum rules, but I just wanted to let you know of my website dealing with chainsaw maintenance (other subjects to follow, but I've got plenty to get on with just with this subject!).

The site http://drivelink.blogspot.com is particularly aimed at inexperienced users, students and those going for their CS30 assessments.

Should you get a chance, please check it out, comments (good / bad) are welcome. For my part, I work at Sparsholt College teaching around 175 people a year on the forestry / arboricultural short courses.

Thank you,
David Vickers.

Carb101 Series

Starting on the 1st August, there's going to be a 7-part basic series about how the carburettors work on a chainsaw over at http://drivelink.blogspot.com - I hope it's of interest to a few of you..?

Cheers.

I'll definately be interested in learning how to properly lean out the motor..

I always had my employer do it for me- and I never really watched closely enough to feel comfortable doing it solo.

Thank you Wood-Wolf, it was put together for the 150+ chainsaw students that I teach a year and I figured that others might find some bits useful too.

Cheers,
David.
