Automatic chain adjusting bar by Halverson Eng

Anyone remember these??  The year on the package is 1981.  I'm not sure what it fits yet.

I have a new Halverson bar in my collection also. It was sent to us to try but never used it. It has as v shaped piece inside of the bar. The middle fingers on the nose acted like a spring against the v and kept the chain tensioned. It never took off.
The chain in the middle with the wings is a Kolve chain. Lots of trouble with this also. One big thing was it couldn't pass the kickback tests.

Never heard of a Kolve chain.  I will need to put it on something and see how it cuts.  In my pile of stuff are five of the Halverson bars.



And all of these chains.



Plus this






 5 of the saws are complete so my entertainment supply has some surplus!!

What did you do  go to an auction and hold your hand up too long?

Online auction for a place that sold and repaired small engines.  My father in law calls me and asked if I wanted a chainsaw for $2.00, it snowballed from there.  I have $91.30 in the pile of stuff.

I heard 3 of the saws run today but 2 of the 3 need new gas line.  I have not tried the Eager Beaver yet but it will be nice to have an Eager Beaver here!! ;D  One of the chains is a 404 with carbide tips. It is not in usable condition unless I were to replace the carbide tips.
