    Yeh you got the wrong one...... I know that you think well that’s no help. But I had the same prob. Except, I brought off AliExpress and got onto the seller they wanted a pic of the box, I was still none the wiser. They got another sent from the factory. but this is where it gets interesting, the new one that was sent was in a different colour box, and this did the same thing. it turned out the original one I brought was/should have been the correct one. But they must have put the wrong one in the box. The new one that was sent was the wrong one. And now I got the whole picture. one type is to only rev to 5k but goes blank at about 7k and resets. The other is the one I wanted (which I first brought) should rev to 15 or 20k so after a faf I ended up buying a different type that needed a battery, but the battery cost just as much as the tach i hope this helps. If you need more info I would need to look up what/where/when I brought it

    New sthil reviews

    The only thing I can add to this thread is my missy loves the 12” just as much as the 18” I think the best is the 12” but she hates the batteries running out. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Bar lift in cut

    Looking at your saw in the mill, it’s blued/lost paint on the bottom. 1. have you been pushing to hard and heated your bar/ not enough oil/blunt chain. Etc. 2. Have you turned your bar and does it still do the same. It looks like you don’t have the bluing/lost paint on the top. 3. Are you running the correct dl gauge for the bar (ie 1.3 in a 1.3 and not a 1.6). And also while we’re here do you have the correct sprocket for the chain, (someone on here was using a std 3/8 sprocket with a 3\8 lopro chain, which seemed to have resulted in chain snapping) Btw. Ive found that cleaning the bar rails then simply a few marks across the rails all the way up with a sharpie pen, then filing the bar with a guide bar dressing file in that fancy holder. Soon Showed up the unevenness. It soon cut straight afterwards. you may think it’s a bit ocd, but if your trying to workout where your going wrong. It just eliminated every little error. cheers I hope this helps

    Work for wood

    As with private drives, I’d ask how big it was (the log/tree/branch), maybe go and look at it, and say it is just a branch. And remember he wanted a price for tidying up before. I'd lump the job price all together. Cos if you do this bit free, the rest may have to be cheap. But it it does really depend on what you will get out of it in the end,and also as said before if it’s stopping you do anything else
