    I used to carry band aids, but it just wasn't enough.
    I'm on my third pair of welding gloves too. The others became fingerless from fondling a Timberwolf. That sumbitch chewed 'em right off.

    Whoever wants to run it at the CT GTG is more than welcome. I'd appreciate any input and feedback.

    I ran the bar last weekend at the gtg. Worked great. Very balanced on the Makita and the 7910. Cuts nice and straight. No funny business. Seems to wear well, with no scratches or scrapes in the carbon.

    If I needed to run that bar on a Stihl large mount, I could have it milled out, and just use the Dolmar/Husky adapters, right?

    I believe Dolmar bar studs are closer together, so it requires its own adaptor.

    That's correct. I have both of the adapters. I still have a couple of large Stihl mount bars, although no Stihl saws anymore. Wasn't sure if there was anything else I would need to do. Oiler holes line up, so I guess milling it out is the solution, if needed.

    Cutting pieces today for the Party Planners. I cut this off of a large Spruce that got hit by lightning. To me it looks like a woman's thighs, and whoo-whoo.
