  6. Hi, I wonder if some kind person/people can help with some basic questions. I have had the ms171 for a few years and only bought stihl chains and oil for it to date.(although that is questionable as though ebay). I was given an electric sharpener (semi auto) but not had great success with it, so have mostly sharpened by hand, but have been finding the cutting time not great for my chains. Have sent them off to get sharpened a few times, but all in all the cost of running the saw is a little higher than I would like. I use it mostly for cutting up logs for my wood burning stove as a money saver so it's very casual use. Have been searching for new chains and oil online. Just concerned about quality. So here are my questions: 1. I have seen some brands of chain for £6 ( archer and Holtham eg 1, 2 Or 3 Saw Chains Select The Stihl Chainsaw Model & Bar Length | eBay) and this is much cheaper than the £12-£20 for the stilh. I am not concerned if they last just as long, as let's face it, if don't figure out the chain saw sharpener, I will likely balls the chain up myself sooner anyway. My concern is about the safety of the chain. Could it break? More kickback? 2. Chain oil. I have been buying 1 ltr, and found now their is also 5l which is cheaper. However I have only used stihl to date. There are loads of brands out there. Can you buy any brand? Want value for money. 3. Reputable places to buy: anyone suggests good websites or ebay shops that you can trust? 4. Chain sharpening: I tend to keep 3-4 chains so happy to post them away to sharpen. If the chain cost £6 no point paying £8 to sharpen though, but what to other people do? Final question. Do you only hand sharpen the chain on the saw? Or can you buy something to hold the chain. I tend to sharpen all at once (and change when cutting) Its a pain having to refit the chain for every sharpen. Many thanks

    Saw Chain

    Whats the best saw chain for my work/saw. I have a Stihl 018 and my work is on Alder carr mainly. Chipper, chistle or semi chistle? Many thanks. BB
  9. Ok folks - time for me to pick your brains for a change!! How would you go about ordering a new bar &/or chain for your chainsaws? I'm trying to identify the best way to display these on our website, and I'd rather go about it in a way that makes sense to the type of folks that might actually order them! e.g. Would you prefer to: - Use the existing bar as a reference? - Search by the make/model of your saw, and look for a list of suitable bars & chains to suit that saw? - Know the length / pitch etc details and order form there? I'd really appreciate any input or feedback on this - I want to make it absolutely dolly simple for people to be able to pick the correct Bars & Chains for their saws. I can have 2/3 different systems, but I've got to start somewhere! Cheers & many thanks, James
