Nice to know about using picco on a 066 milling. I wouldnt have trusted it myself bucking. Thanks for info.
  He also said the Oregon 91 was just as strong.  That's a lot cheaper than the picco  :)
It's all in how you sharpen your chain and keep touching it up.

 Strength is not in just one link of a loop of chain, strength is in all the links working together as a team ;)

I've seen guys who over heat a chain with a Dremil stone trying to sharpen it. Then it breaks.
I always use a sharp file. Throw it away when it starts to get dull.

Depth gauge settings : On my 090/395 .404 milling chain I run them at .040
With the little Picco on the 066 stay at .025

[I like 63PS 63PS3 the full chisel chain. Now if cutting dirty crappy stuff I throw on the semi chisel.   Was only paying .18 a drive link for ps ps3.]
That is a good price.  Where do you get it for that?   I have pluenty, but nice to know when its gone.

Yes, heat works against you there.  Only time I use a Dremel is on a old root cutting, pond ice,  or a frozen sod cutting chain.  Something I don't care too much about or near the end of its life.
