Was just out in the yard "seein' how she flies" and WOW, I am super-duper stoked right now. Stepping up from a beat-to-shit Homelite Ranger 16" that I've been abusing for a year, this saw is WAY more aggressive & powerful.

...big thanks to 4wd Bill for the good advice...and to craigslist for continuing to be awesome.

NICE!! Big mouth looks awesome. Looks as if the new chain saw has paid for itself already

And the bikes look great!

Yeah, the new saw is really nice.

Do yourself a favor and DON'T wait 2 years before you buy yourself a decent saw. I SOOOO wish I'd done it sooner. A lot of time wasted with weak saws that took forever to get it done. This thing is sick!

I think that the next step in my "tiki evolution" may be putting a carving bar on my little beater homelite & see if I can step up my chainsaw game a little.

Nice. I admire your talent with the chain saw. Still working on that myself. I have three sizes (20", 16", 14"), but haven't mastered any of them yet.

^ thanks bro ^

my technique is pretty simple...draw some good lines, trace over them lightly with the saw the first time to make a decent "groove", and then go back over it a few times for depth.

...and 45 minutes with a saw and a face appears!
