    No stopwatch to it but seemed like a nice pickup to me. Good job Steve.

    Having never met you or seen a good picture I discovered in the video that your avatar is a pretty close resemblance, right down to the black cap.
    Thanks again and hi to Gunther.

    Liking how this 395xp came out, even though a saw for saw milling it still has some serious stones to it. Even with a grabby soft wood chain it pulled good in Red Oak simulating a milling cut. For as large of a saw this is, once fired up, you forget about any weight with the power being unleashed in such a fashion.
    Did have a blooper the first firing with a circlip coming off, so a new piston had to be installed again. Not really sure where to place the blame, but heavily looking at my part in the whole process, I know sometimes shite happens, but is no fun when it does.
    The saw is easy to get started with the decompressor which is good for when in the milling jig. I added a D handle and custom fitted it to the starter so as to have authority when doing so.
    Look forward to doing another that doesn't have to be held back on for milling.

    Thanks @Mastermind, @Deets066, @XP_Slinger, @Stump Shot, @huskihl, @mdavlee and everyone else that helped me through porting my MS241. I learned a lot during the process (especially it's probably better to just buy one from a pro!) I should have probably used unseasoned wood.

    Here it is in seasoned red alder:



    And here in wild cherry that's been seasoning for 3 years. Probably a dumb test for the little saw:

    Growls like a much larger saw. Get some smaller 6 or 8 inch stuff and let it spin.

    That's actually good, it shows it can do the hard stuff, anything can do the easy stuff.

    Wooo! Let's show off our 241's.

    This is with an 18" bar running picco with rakers a bit low for the wood it's in, which is Fraxinus Excelsior - European ash. A lot like eastern american ash when it grows on hillsides like this one has.

    I think that was a perfect test! Sounds strong in the cut pulling the full bar. I’d call that little dude a success. Great job
