    Why not. I can use an old Bridgeport at work to make some holes but there isn't a sharp tool to be found.

    ....or the genius at Stihl that invented the flippy cap and another genius approved it and a real *frenching genius said lets change all our saw numbers to commemorate this great event in history! And they did! *frenching amazing! LOL

    This same time frame every other large manufacturer was making poorly designed/made products as well, chasing that $.

    I have a few sugi light bars & IMO there ain't much difference between them & the solids. The real light bars are either Stihl or Oregon & I think Stihl has the cleverest design, the cut out pattern they use & filler is pretty rigid & light.

    I have a 28,32,&36” they are definitely a little flimsy compared to others but are considerably lighter especially than a Sugihara. I’ve had a couple issues with the inserts coming loose, Oregon just sends me a new bar and I keep the old one and epoxy the insert and end up with another bar. Over all I like them the rails hold up well

    I have and haven’t seen any issues, but I’m no logger by any means. Oh Jack Beeler seems to use the RW Oregon bars a lot and hasn’t said anything about issues

    I just paid $140 for a brand new Stihl 28” Es Light. How would a tsumura compare? I’m looking to buy a handful of bars and am considering Tsumura although I really like the Stihls

    I am new to using these light bars but having trouble with my Tsumara tips holding up! Have not tried the sugis yet! Lots of bore cutting!

    Hell an Oregon would be more then stiff enough and be cheaper, seems like a 32 was less then that.

    Do you really need to bore the back cut? Or is more of this is what’s always been done? GOL? Boring is going to put a ton of pressure on a tip that’s not designed for pressure it’s a bearing.

    My 28” Oregon cost $155. Either way it’s in the ballpark. I’m just looking for a comparable bar to the Stihl and if I can save some money I was gonna go that route
