    Are you really 25 years old like your profile says? If you are, you are the most mature 25 year old I think I have ever talked to. Who ever raised you did a good job, I'm sure the good Lord had a hand in it too. I wish we did live closer, I think we would get along great.

    I'm actually 24. I lied about my birthday on my profile page because I don't see why the entire internet needs to know the day I was born.

    And, yes: mom and God were a big influence. If it were my choice, I would have never become the man I am today. There were many times where either God, mom, or both stopped me from doing something that would have messed up my life.

    I do wish I had a few good men near me. I have yet to find anyone worth becoming friends with. Most men aren't men nowadays and have no connection with God (or don't even want a connection with God). They lack integrity, honesty, confidence, forgiveness, level-headedness, self-awareness, fairness, or any combination of these. The biggest thing is this: most men (and women) do not want to better themselves in any substantial way.

    I'm not saying I have all these qualities perfected (in fact, I am currently working on being more level-headed), but so few people want to strive to make those qualities better in themselves. I see it like a challenge from God Himself, because, in fact, it is. He wants us to be the best we can be so we can serve him effectively.

    Anyway, I've ranted enough.

    I have found that your cut finish is very dependant on how tight your chain is. If there is too much slack you will get washboarding. Just a tip for the OP keep your chain as tight as you can in which you are not too hard on the power head.

    Ah, OK! Makes sense. I've always just kept it tight enough to not hang, but are you saying it should be a tad tighter? I don't want to wear out sprockets too quickly or anything.

    Believing in a “God” or some some other deity is not a requisite for any of the qualities you list. It appears you are prejudging all people and rejecting all those who do not share your views as inferior and unworthy. Seems pretty narrow minded…

    Too tight will be too hard on the power head, just follow your manual on chain tightness and you will be fine.
    I’d your chain is sharp and your oiler is on full it will keep the chain cool enough in which you will not be constantly adjusting tension.

    Being open minded is accepting the beliefs of others and understanding that even no belief in a god is still a belief in itself. this is a right in a free country and it’s really important that it be respected.

    I agree judging people because of what they do or don’t believe makes this world a worse place than it has to be.

    You are putting words in my mouth.

    I was not saying believing in God was a prerequisite for admirable traits. I was saying many men lack a combination of those traits, one of which was believing in God.

    I also NEVER said those who believe in God are superior to those who don't. There are plenty of Christians I want absolutely nothing to do with because they are hypocrites. In the end, no one is superior than anyone else. The only difference true Christians have over nonbelievers is that our faults are accounted for by Jesus Christ for Almighty God.

    Amen! Whether you believe in a god or not is still a belief. It's impossible to prove there is no God.

    I respect anyone's right to believe in whatever they want. I may not agree with it, but that right is unable to be taken away in my eyes.

    I just purchased a g660pro for milling. The reason for joining this forum. Here in central NC, my oaks are mostly <24”. Poplars are <38”. Hickory, maple, birch and others are smaller than the oaks. Pines are all over.
    I have the saw, looking for a 32’ extension ladder for the first cut. End game is to construct a roofed structure to park the tractor under.
    while the Chinese made 660 may not be perfect, it will do what I need. Also ordered a high output oil pump for the 36” ripping chain/bar.

    Rant away brother. I made some bad decisions in my life. If God was talking, I wasn't listening. Then in 2005 I was in a really low place and God showed up. I listened that time and accepted him and followed him in baptism. Life is so much better with God in it.

    Actually, it is impossible to prove there is a “God”. I have yet to see any empirical evidence to prove there is.

    This is going quite off topic. Let's take this to DMs.

    Alternatively, I think there is a religion section of the forum?

    Whichever you prefer.

    Gotcha. Thanks for the warning.

    I assume DMs are OK since they aren't public?

    Yes that applies to the public forum and not private conversations.

    So, anyway...back to the original topic...

    660 vs 395 for milling: is it generally accepted the 395 is better for milling? Is the stock oiler good enough on both saws for a 42" bar without an aux oiler?
