    Why Did I bother!!!

    Sounds a bit rum, on the other hand it was 6pm and he still had half a load to chip and a long way home - clearly not having a good day so maybe difficult to be cheery.

    Stihl ms 211/ c throttle linkage removal

    Just post some photos. Pitting on the combustion chamber tends to mean metal fragments have been smashed repeatedly between the piston and squish band but the piston would also have damage in this instance. It is most likely your description may be a bit off and a few photos will clarify. The clutch oil leak - may be fuel oil residue from a badly leaking seal (if black) unless the oil is clean chain oil from other sources.

    Base anchor pulling capability’s vs isolated fork

    Yes, obviously the force will be identical, assuming the line is either tied off at the crotch or passes over the crotch, at the same height. But I understood from some of the previous posts it was the potential for crotch failure due to the imposed compressive/splitting loading from the line that was the possible weakness, if tied off at the base as opposed to the crotch..

    Just a thought. What is it on? Some grinders always work with the engine tipped frontwards. While within the capabilities of the oil pump, it may have an effect?

    Aspen delivery

    My local dealer has stopped stocking Aspen and started stocking Husqvarna XP Power instead. Can I still order 3 cans of Aspen and get it delivered direct to me? Or should I just use the Husqvarna stuff instead? I use it in an MS261, KM131R 4-mix and BG85 blower if that makes any difference. Thanks James

    Whats your multione loader doing today ?

    Splitting kindling

    Probably alright for pallet wood. The hazel sticks can be quite tough though, especially the knotty ones.
  15. The only thing that may cause problems is sitkas ability to remain resolutely stuck to their surrounding trees, and not fall over. Luckily, we don't need it to fall. Severed from stump is fine as the winch will pull it out to the processor, dropping it as it goes.

    Had my heart set on those wee gems as well 😂 am I best to leave it outside to dry or keep it in a dry warm room? I live in a pretty cold and typically wet although it’s nice out just now. Cheers

    Was thinking I’ll use wee plastic gems instead of glitter cheers for the suggestion anyway 😂 how long is the recommended drying period? And once dry what should I treat it with? Shellac or wood varnish or some kind of oil? Cheers
