It is interesting to see how the technology evolved: how Joe Cox invented the chain that basically all of us use today; where chain brakes and anti-vibe technology came from; how saws evolved from components mounted on a frame to the current,integrated motor/housing designs; etc.

Some people find the business aspects interesting: how certain companies merged, or 'vacuumed' up others for capacity, patents/technology, to eliminate competition, etc.

Sometimes these come together, even today, as we watch brands like Jonsered get 're-purposed in the market place', and Husqvarna split away from Oregon and make their own chains.  The battery-powered saw market is currently expanding, but will likely consolidate too in several years. Understanding who owns what sometimes helps to understand the decisions they make.

It was mentioned a few posts back Blount bought Windsor from Snap On tools.
Snap On is doing good in Australia.  Here's  a pic of a $67K tool chest combo from down under.

It appears theaters TriLink is now using the 'Sabre' name for chain.
