  1. Yep check the bar/drive sprocket and chain - post close up pics on here... if the sprocket is badly worn it can damage the drive links - could be an issue.. though not sure why it would cause the chain to get tighter. I don't think there is any way of the bar moving forward once you have tightened the side casing.
  2. If you put in Jonsered 625 here all these bars should fit www.chainsawbars.co.uk For chains click the bar and scroll down. PS check your drive rim/drive sprocket for wear before fitting a new bar and chain SPROCKET CARE - Chainsawbars WWW.CHAINSAWBARS.CO.UK
  3. Yep the tough part is when someone is determined to blame the gear ie. bar or chain - it can never ever be them. My opinion is - there is a chance it's the gear or there's a chance it's you. It's so counterproductive to buy a new bar and chain and then run that with a worn sprocket - such a waste of $$
  4. It's the oregon maintenance manual http://en.oregonproducts.com/pro/pdf/maintenance_manual/ms_manual.pdf
  5. And I fully admit when I was full time on the tools I was one of the worst offenders!! Esp hedge reduction and having the chain de rail... I'd just get it back on there and run it until it cut again. I think fair enough - but when you do come to replace stuff replace it together.
  6. It keeps cropping up - folks tend to buy a new chain when it stops cutting or it is worn out, a new bar when the same happens or fancy a change - and a new drive rim/sprocket rarely. If you buy a new bar and are in doubt - change the drive rim + don't use old chains on a new bar - even if 'only got it a few days ago' or 'the saw is new'. A used rim wears the chain which wears the bar. Together they all wear together - buy a new bar and run an old rim/sprocket and old chain likely you will wear the bar inside the rails and on the rail surface, much faster. If you have to - keep an old chain for when the bar is 6 months or so + then it's not so important. But with the high spec Sugi/Tsumura/Cannon bars the tolerances are tight - a slightly burred chain [on the drive links] will quickly gouge out your new bar and cause overheating to boot. It's a negative saving. Sometimes a chain will de rail - and often this really burrs up the drive links - putting this on and using an stump to force the chain to start turning then revving the saw to get it running is going to knacker that bar and drive sprocket rapidly. And then put a new bar on - you will wear that bar out x5 as quickly! You're better off running things longer and then changing everything together than replacing things one at a time.
  7. It's basically the Panther Intersect Mill - and that's it - not other bits required [although you would want another Panther Intersect body to do what I've done above] Panther Intersect Mills - Chainsawbars WWW.CHAINSAWBARS.CO.UK
  8. You should be making enough $$ not to make it too big a decision as to what fuel you use. If in doubt turn to firewood - milling is tough demanding expensive work - only mill the stuff that gives you real pleasure or cash. My opinion only.
  9. Yep I think you could cut hexagonal pretty easily - but I suppose it may be easier to make something that holds a post at a 45 degree angle and then you rotate the post in this 'holder'.
  10. It seems to change the thinner the chain - the 1/4 .043 picco chain gives a pretty smooth cut even though it is at 25/30 degrees [I forget which] so the thinner the chain the less difference it makes. Like everything more than one way to go - the Oregon 91vxl is not a ripping chain but it seems to work amazingly well when performing vertical cuts.
  11. Am starting to experiment using the Panther Intersect more as wood working tools rather than planking - and it works really well especially for re sawing. It should be pretty easy to set things so you can slide the height up and down for the vertical side. You can see if you pinned the Panther large end brackets differently you could adjust the angle of cut.
  12. It doesn't but when you buy reels of chain they come with plenty of joining rivets and tie straps.
