just reminded me I haven't posted my boast yet..... I literally have a ton of wood and no way to cut it, so yesterday I bit the bullet and bought another new chainsaw... I had a Sears Craftsman gas powered, but it stopped starting and try as I might I couldn't start it again... took it to my mechanic and he thought I might have a scored cylinder wall or something along that line... at any rate, it wouldn't start for him either.... I also have a couple of small electrics, but they're not going to handle the size logs I need to cut..... I picked up a new Stihl MS250 to work my wood with.... haven't had a chance to try it out yet, just got it yesterday after the wife's doctor's appointment which took most of the day.... then today we had an art group meeting for an upcoming show so the morning was short, then since we were close, decided to go on over to hospital lab and get her blood work done that's on a standing order there, stopped off on the way home at grocer's and then it was too hot (95 degrees) to go out and cut wood... tomorrow we'll have company all day, so will be Thursday before I might get to try it out... if Ed doesn't come in until Friday... if he comes in, then probably will be Friday before I can play with it... I'll have to load the truck sometime Friday for the market on Saturday, so if Friday falls through, it will be Sunday.
