Husky 300 series for log carving
« on: April 29, 2016, 06:33:36 pm »
Anyone here use the 340,345, 350 series saws for wood carving?  I put a Woodland Pro carving bar with dime tip on my 340 today and had issues with the bar tip getting very hot.  Saw oils fine and works good with a regular 16" B & C.  Chain is not adjusted tight, and the oiler is working.  This is my first carving kit, so I'm a greenhorn at carving.   It heats up worse when I plunge cut.  There is no sprocket in the tip of this bar.  It got hot enough to burn the paint off the tip of the bar.  B&C came as a kit from Baileys with sprocket & .250 ring gear & chain.  Am I doing something wrong, or is something going on?   It may be possible its just not getting enough oil, so tomarow I will change it over to my Jonny 2150 and adjust oiler to max and see what happens.

Just a WAG. You have to run the chains a little looser on the hard nose bars.
I noticed the few regular nose hardnose I had burned the paint on the tips  too.

I will give that a try.  Its been raining here a lot since last post and have not been able to try it again.  I went ahead and converted everything over to my 2150 and turned my oiler up, so will give that a try.  Many thanks Cut4fun, your the 3rd person that's told me that the last few days.   :)

Nothing odd with that, as it pretty well known advice with hard nose bars - and your small tip likely make it even more important.

Thanks SawTroll.  I always respect yours and Cut4Funs advice on matters.  Using it on my 2150 now, and it is doing much better than on the 340 with the factory fixed oiler.  Should have did this on the start.  I did not know that about hardnosed bars.  Never to old to learn are we! ::)   Thanks again guys.........
