    That grinder would be so confused with that full house chain! LOL

    Looks pretty dry for such a long swim!

    Carvers who use 'full house' chain could be a real market for an auto grinder. Your loop, however, is pretty 'special'!

    Have fun with it!

    I know that You have seen/handled this particular loop at Nate's. :)

    There must be a dry season on the pond for the loop to have stayed dry. ;)

    I am curious to see if that chain can clear chips effectively.

    I think LGX cuts faster but EXL holds an edge better.

    I don't have an LGX loop at hand right now, but the EXL teeth seem to feature a more open gullet.
    I will try compare both tomorrow.

    I believe Jason was referring to previous posts where regular LGX vs EXL was mentioned.

    I was thinking about chip clearance and came to think about band and circular saws - where do the chips go on those, not much room between the teeth either.

    Nope, your mission (wether you accept it or not) is to dedicate tomorrow to comparisions, pictures, videos and opinions. The rest of us can’t wait to live vicariously through you.

    I don't have any square wood to put this loop into!
    Does that give me any leniency? o_O

    What do You Americans care about Full House anyway?! :rolleyes:
    You use Full Skip on 72DL loops for sake of sharpening down time.

    Think about that, both 72DL but Full House features 72 teeth versus 18 teeth on Full Skip.

    I think I have a regular 72DL Oregon LGX loop, either new or nearly new.
    I do not have any normal sequence EXL loop though.
    That been said any comparison between Full House and Full Complement will not be a 100% accurate.

    I like full comp below 32” bar. I like skip on a 36” bar.

    That full house chain may not cut fast but it should be smooth.

    Much closer to stihl chain, it's better but I still prefer stihl chain.

    I /we need more than just a tease. Looks like some small to fine chips/ dust on top of the log.

    The dust just flew over from an undercut on another log.
    The chain makes decent sized chips.

    Nope, Dolmar PS -7310 pulled the chain good.
    Chain and bar did not get stucky in the woody - operator pushed the kill switch WOT mid cut for scientific reasons, took the PH off for convenience.

    I have no truck, but I have 6 more saws ready to help out if ever needed - log is located in my own back yard.

    Videos are made and compressed (way too big file size to upload them to YouTube when shot in 720p), I will try and get them up this evening or tomorrow.

    Stay tuned! :D

    Good to hear, that it will clear a decent sized chip. So was it worth the wait.
