    Hello all....it has been a few years(3-4) since I was on "the other site" and WTH happened?

    Been through a lot in those years, divorce, dad passing away, little shop I was tinkering in burning down(lost a few saws in that one)
    I have been lurking around this site, and am impressed with the civility, and free sharing of knowledge I have seen. Having made the decision to get back into tinkering with saws is a welcome break from the past few years, and I look forward to gaining and sharing(what little I have) knowledge.

    I found this place while searching for info on my latest project, a very tired and abused 12mm 044. It has suffered a broken A.V mount on the rear P.T.O side case, so that will be a challenge.

    Looking forward to posting, and hopefully learning even more.

    P.S I had the honor of meeting MasterMind in person at the Central Va. GTG back in 2013....damn nice guy...down to earth and easily approachable

    I could probably fix that case half. I've welded a few of those AV loops on Stihls over the years.

    Welcome, I don't know and don't much care(apologies for being crass) as this place doesn't leave me looking for another. Never been on AS and probably never will. Everyone else is kinda past whatever it was, maybe @Mastermind or @Jon1212 can shoot you a brief pm about it, so as not to mire up your introduction thread.
