    Finally I took the plunge

    No its not a CNC but for years I have wanted one and today I picked up this baby when we could not get a Friend of mines very old Stihl saw to run. I need a saw at the new place, in reality only for a small job, but for so long I have wanted my own saw to be able to cut bowl blanks when the opportunities arise and there have been many that I could not take advantage of. So now I can.

    Its not the best its also recons but for US$ 100 I think it was a deal Poulan Pro 50cc PP5020AV

    A truck and a chainsaw?? You are a dangerous man, Rob. Next you will be hauling home loads of mystery wood.

    LOL! You know I envy you. I've only had an electric one for about 15 years now. Probably use it once a year, but one of these days I'm going to have a tree go down and need something with more power.

    I didn't think they let you live in Canada without a chainsaw?

    Live and learn! Congrats! Have fun and be safe!

    Chainsaw is optional, axe is mandatory at least on the west coast, back east they might do things differently - since they have hardwoods and the only hardwoods this side of the divide were quakies (except on the coast but that's a different country basically). I think in Toronto you're also required to be able to perform the grand and royal dance of the moose complete with authentic moose calling before taking up residence. In BC we'd already eaten most of them so they called it off over here cause no one could pass the moose calling test.
