  1. If the cylinder cleans up you could get away with seals and a new piston. Not too bad for a decent saw. I wouldn't write it off.
  2. It's getting there, going to leave an impressive scar it's a pain about the setbacks and hope you're feeling better now. I got my right little finger crushed many years ago and it was splinted and bandaged, stitched and aspirated (fluid syringed out really painful) and you can't tell now apart from the stitch line up the inside. It'll take some healing over as it's a wide wound.

    Woodland fair

    Elvaston Castle woodland festival is back on, we'll be going for a few hours later on just to get out and have a look round. Weather looks good for today.
  4. It would also mean you only get to use one face so it will last about 10 minutes,
  5. I don't understand this bit, lower edge of what ? Sorry if I'm being obtuse.

    044 Gaskets

    It will be paper then, scrape it off and don't worry about it it's not like you're taking a shed roof down. Blue and brown were banned in 1985 and the rest in 1999.

    044 Gaskets

    Base gasket for mine was a metal one. Will yours be a 12mm little end or a 10mm ? Mine is a 12mm
  8. A friend of mine had a unit where he kept his plant and the rear door opened onto fields and was only composite ply to the outside. All the units were getting broken into from this side so inside the frame we made a 4" angle frame and a 6mm plate door with a couple of locks inside. Eventually the outside door was smashed but the inside steel plate was hardly marked.

    Castrol 2 stroke

    Stick it on ebay, it's a collector's piece.👍
  10. [email protected], I've been robbed. Is car tax real ?
  11. Just a thought, Any chance of training beaver to do this ? Finally a reason for reintroducing them.
  12. Show us some pictures at least of the piston and possibly the inside of the cylinder to have some idea of the state of play. How did it get to this stage as it sounds like it had some serious misuse if it lost compression and the bearings are shot unless it left the factory with problems.
  13. 😝Any saw that does that to itself deserves everything it gets. That needs a deflector to blow the heat forwards away from the plastic.
  14. I don't understand this symptom
  15. Well she says whatever he tells you, take two inches off🙄
