    customer wont pay

    I'm sure under the consumer act, a client has to have 24hrs between quote given and accepting it. Otherwise in court client will say "pressured into accepting" then the court will rule in favour of client automatically. Tread carefully [emoji51]

    Battery saws

    Took my msa200 on my 30/31 early last year. Tutor told me "THIS is a petrol chainsaw course". Told him to try it. 5 cuts later, he's looking at the machine saying **** me It cuts really well. [emoji848] The smallest saw I had was a ms440 with 16" bar. [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

    Parking scams

    So, most motorway services now charge £100 for parking over 2 hours. BP charge £100 for over 30 mins!!! [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23] ****'s Apparently its unenforceable though. [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]

    Rim sprockets for different bar lengths.

    Yes you will see an increase in chain speed, I put an 8tooth 3/8 full chisel on my 661 with 25" bar to speed up cross cutting medium oak. Wouldn't want to fell/bore cut with one as accuracy is a bit difficult. Cuts like a m*********er!!!! [emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]

    Rim sprockets for different bar lengths.

    I should have said stihl only do... A .404 9 tooth sprocket eh? Hmmm I've a got a 17" bar with a 3002 mount. What are you running with that sprocket. [emoji12][emoji106][emoji106][emoji106]

    How to find a yard

    I'm thinking of building a large "shed" in the garden to keep tools/machines in. Storing wood has always been a problem though. Let us know how you get on. [emoji106]

    8 tooth sprocket for 404? Thought they were only available for 3/8?
