A chain saw will cut much better when the chain is not installed backwards......

Good ideas   :rolling:

 

I took apart, clean out the oiler, put it back together, got it running. Went out back to test it out and immediate smoke and no shavings.

Looked down......immediate feeling of "you imbecile"  :wallbanging:

Tahoe the site was only down for less than 1 day you could have held off on putting that chain on until you could ask for advice :smilewink:

 

Just kidding,I could write a book on things I goofed up on but nobody would believe it.

What I hate about chainsaw chains is when you get them in a double figure 8 and can't figure out how to get them undone!

Tahoe, if you managed to install the chain backwards, then it MUST be time to sue the manufacturer.  They forgot to issue a warning to keep you from doing it!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck put the chain on properly?

At least I haven't install a mower blade upside down. Okay, I have done it, but caught myself before running it.  :smilewink:

 

Bill 76, tell me about it. Wasn't 12 hrs with site down and I lost every sense of direction.  :D
