Chain build off
« on: January 03, 2012, 03:04:59 pm »
Make a Race chain, square work, your best round or whatever to compare.  Always have a stock off reel chain tested to use as a baseline.

Is there anyone that has access to clean cant wood that would want to test chains like I used to in the past? I have to order and drive 3hr round trip in my 9mpg truck is why I am offering to someone else to try to do it.  Then you have to keep the chains straight and mail right chains back to their owners when done.

 Just build your chain to have tested against others. Say a 60dl 050 3/8 chain and whatever saw to be tested on with what gear to be run. Make 3 down cuts  and just list as chain a b c d e as I did in the past.

I used a stock 7900 with 8T one year and I think a woods ported 357xp 7T another year.

It'll warm up again I'm sure  or at least it always has in the past .

When it does and it works out I'll bring a pair of 200T's and a chisel  and a semi  and see what the deal is on that small chain .--in my 26 MPG truck,small ya know  ;)

I might be able to get one or two done if it's a few months. Need home time and plenty of free time to do it.

I've got to learn the craft. I doubt I will ever get into thinning and all, but there's a hell of a lot else I could learn.
