i went to an auction today. i picked up a grinder chain puller and worm drive saw.  The shop has slowed, we need to get the land scape in before the city will come out to do a final inspection.

chain saw

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 9:35 pm

i picked up a McCulloch Super Pro125 chain saw with 52 inch bar.  the cord pulls and it seems to have compression but i could not get it started.  the shop progress has slowed over the past 2 weeks mostly due to weather. hopefully this coming week we will finish the painting and get the floor in.
