ok the other chain saw thread made me go to the shed after i remembered this. this is a homelite. the one i seen with a bow blade. has a 20" bar. made in U.S.A. recoil is broke. but it sat for 20 years. me and a buddie had it running within 30 min of me discovering at paps house. then recoil gave in. do ya all think its worth investing $100 in to get it fixed. IF it takes that much. my buddie can take it to work and fix it. or maybe i can talk him into getting a lil side $ for himself. heres the saw. all metal. ide bet its better than the new McCulloch and poulen i have. it sounded like a weedeater without a muffler but it didnt take but a bit of fresh fuel and a carb cleaning and it started and ran.
