Chain looks like old .500 chisel bit. Can't remember the fellas name who touted full house race chain.

Yep Art Martin made chain.   
Seen some of his 3/8 etc stuff made for out west racing.  He did some things different from what I seen on them.  It just isnt what I was used to seeing.
I dont know if it would have been good for our type of racing here. But will never know.

Looks like  lot of teeth to sharpen, how would that do on a ms660 with muffler hollowed out with a cross mmws cylinder? Looks like more the teeth, smoother the cut or am I wrong?

Way before my time but I remember that Art Martin thread on AS.
I got it saved on one of my old lap tops, (imagine all the treasures I'll find when I open those laptops 20 years from now).
Cahoon was flaming Art calling him a liar and the mods deleted all his posts. Art packed in the thread then his health turned for the bad.

Looking at that full house  .500  race chain you can see it's stoned, cut down to nothing . Looks like the depth gauges were left factory high and thinned out with a sharp top edge to cut a kerf for the cutters.
Would work ok in softwood in the PNW but from seeing some missing cutter pieces would not be very stout for eastern hardwood.
Alot of chassis for extra baggage with that .500  that's where the .404 HT shines today.

Going to have to make some more 3/8" 76LG high tooth chain.

I have never run full house chain. I have heard it is very smooth.

Not sure what my friend is going to do with it. All I know is that he said he was interested in trying one. So I made one up for him, as he does not have a breaker or spinner.
