  1. For p.l join an artists union. 30quid a year includes you p.l for the year. Ace
  2. Not used the oregon carving bars. They are probably ok though. Cannon and sugi ones are good. Def get a 1/4 pitch dime one. The advantage of the 3/8 ones is minimal compared to what you can achieve with a normal bar. 12 or 14inch is a good all rounder. Saw size wise i think ideally youd want a smaller saw, but you will be ok with a 231, you have to be careful not to wazz it on full throttle lots as with a bigger saw youll get alot more heat on the tip of the bar. Worth having a good read up on using a carving bar, re chain tension etc as they are fragile compared to normal bars
  3. Probably there is something posher. But i use a decent wetstone with 2 grits ( one either side) then a fine one with round and v bevels on for the knocking the burr off the inside of the chisel. Then a flexcut leather with gold crumbly stuff for finishing ( this also has various shaped bits for the inside of the chisels. Doing it by hand is slow, but harder to make a massive error!
  4. This is a carving bar right? No nose sprocket. One came with my 2511. Its holding up well for carving
  5. Have seen them for sale with a 10inch 1/4 echo carving bar. They available with a nose sprocket bar on 1/4 now?
  6. Have a go at tuning that carb. Turn and a quarter on each should get it to run, check the idle screw as this could need some turns in
  7. Have you tuned the carb? If its new it will need setting up. Many youtooob videos on this
  8. I have been running my work car on aspen for the last few years, it adds about $130 onto my day rate, but no carb issues or head aches so has to be worth it. Plus i feel i may as well get my monies worth of the fuel tax hmrc charge.
  9. Man, 42 special, that must suck. Make sure you get the pro replacement for thay i would.
  10. Foutrak? Swb land cruiser? 4x4 swb transit? 4motion transporter?
