    Advice on selling our Dolmar KMS-4

    Thanks everyone as you know @littlelionlee88 its quite a rare Saw only made for 1yr it would be a collectors piece and only do what you’ve been doing a great sounding Saw a little ripper I had one but due to lack of spares available I sold mine to a collector in Austria a few years back I would be quite happy too purchase it from you or work out a sale on your behalf If you wanted some help a PM with some information and history would be a start

    Hello Bill I have only sold one complete handle and the actual saw handle after a accident in the forest with one 7910 ive sold a few brake bands over the years and a few springs but never a brake flag through everyday use they should be concerned as you’ve not even used it also I noticed your spring is lost a bit of tension the retaining cup just needs a bit rounding of the end

    Hello Bill that is bad cant beleive they would do this , surely drilling a safety handle isn’t a good idea , if you drilled a safety hard hat HSE wouldn’t allow this can you send me some very very good detailed photos so I can chase it up I wouldn’t dare send a safety handle back too anyone in this state obviously they’ve drilled it to put this sticker on the pop rivet has put pressure on the plastic then it’s had a bump via courier delivery thankfully breaking it before you used it it it will be interesting too see the handles that come from Dolmar
