    Looks good. Just after a croll or similar and I'll be making one of these also. You make your foot loop as well or just buy one?

    what will cut a lot will cut a little!!!

    Dont think that's a problem running the bar clamps set it a bit. Obvs keep an eye in the cut that the saws weight isn't bending down the way. Also make sure yer bar is supported well when you do the bar clamps up as you can sort of force a bend onto the bar which accentuates as the change the depth gauges.

    020av clutch help please

    I'd say the nut isn't on far enough but the newer type clutch wont need the cover and nut on. That nut doesnt hold the clutch on just the washer cover I think. I'd try it without nut or clutch cover personally. But cant promise you this is correct! Def keep an eye on it!

    020av clutch help please

    I reckons your good with the nut and washer. The anticlockwise thread will keep it on as with most outboard clutches. When I have had a clutch off I try and remember to engage the chain brake soon after with the chain going a bit to nip it up right good.

    3/8 picco 8 tooth sprocket

    I think with a sharp chain you can get away with it. I run a 9t .325 18'' on my 361 and its mint but you def notice as soon as it's a little dull, bogs down. Just bought a 8t for the 026 so will report back also

    Another 40 year old just starting

    Not properly covering things like cambium savers, all types of friction device and throw line techniques in an I week course is madness. Even on my 3 dayer I got to mess around with a big shot, cambium savers /pulleys and hitch climber etc. Not that you need a course to use a cambium saver like. That 5 min video on YouTube pretty much all that's required.
