Just saw this on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/...=item3cc9e4ebb5

It is an old Bolens chainsaw. I didn't even know Bolens made chainsaws until I saw this as well as the metal sign in another post that said "Bolens Chainsaws". I guess you learn something new everyday!

I was curious though, how rare are these things and what kind of money are they worth? I know in certain circles, some really old chainsaws are worth a lot of money and there are custom competition saws and other types of chainsaws that go for big money.... But I don't know much about them myself except that they cut wood! :rolling:

Oh, sorry! I didn't know, Doc! Didn't mean to advertize it to make it harder for you to get it or anything!

Dont worry about it. I'm not really too interested in this one but I will get it if the price is right.
The paint on it is not too great of shape and that missing air cleaner is going to be a real PITA to locate.

Ahhh... I got ya, Doc... :smilewink: Working a bit of that reverse-psychology on them to make it sound like it's not anything worth buying so then you can scoop it up cheap! :laughingteeth:
