Found a david bradley gear driven chainsaw earlier this year at a garage sale that has siezed from sitting but is otherwise in good shape.  I already put Marvel Mystery Oil in the cylinder to free it up, so while that is doing its job I have two big questions.  (btw: I only paid $10 for the saw.)

 

Question1: Does th engine turn the same direction as a normal chainsaw, or opposite due to the gear drive?

Question2: Does anybody know where to find 1/2" pitch chainsaw chain?

 

Any help appreciated!

I have one about like that sitting in the shed. I have been told that they don't make the 1/2 inch pitch chain anymore.

I hate to send you away from GTTalk, but the place to ask is http://arboristsite.... Mall chainsaw.

 

Post some pictures here, though!  I want to see your saw!

It appears the site in question {arborsite} has been hacked....    The chain can still be found, it is used or NOS.  Watch Ebay and do a general internet search.

Just googled that site, looks like they're having some serious problems over there. :wallbanging: :tapping_fingers:

Sorry about the bum link.  I could have sworn it was working the other day, but maybe it was another site.

 

I keep those sort of things bookmarked, I didn't even bother to check this morning.

 

And then, to make it worse, I screw the stupid link up posting it.  :wallbanging:

 

Sounds like some screwcase blew up the website.  I never messed much at that forum, but they did know chainsaws.  They helped me out of a bind a couple times when I messed with an old chainsaw that I didn't know anything about.
