A Strunk Morwood, and John Deere 12.  And yes, they both run.  And run well, too.  The John Deere I refinished many years ago.  Made my own decals for this little project.  The Strunk I have also had for many years.  It is exactly as I bought it.  All original.  Will have to more than likely have to clean the carburetor before she will start again.  Last time I started it was around eight years ago.  John Deere I had running two weeks ago after sitting for almost ten years.  Added fresh gas, a dozen or so pulls, and she fired right up.  I always drain the gas completely out of them if they are going to sit for a while.  Which they mostly do.

Neat saws

 

I have an old Clinton that was given to me, it just sits on the shelf, don't even know if it would run or not.

That is me, as well.  I only have five saws.  That's it.  Yes.  Something about them.
